A Little Zingo Teaches a BIG Life Lesson!

I absolutely LOVE this excerpt from Heather’s “Pumpkins, Cupcakes-, and a Little Zingo!” post on her blog Kaleidoscope.  Heidi’s incredible photography captures her family’s play experience beautifully, and shows her son learning an important life lesson through play!

Once upon a time, a loving yet, apparently competitive family decided to play a game of Zingo!

they laughed, smiled, and were just generally happy to be spending some time together before bedtime.

or had she just not yelled out that magic word.
you see, beckham raised his hands and said, “i won!” and with a covered board…he almost had, but his big sister realized that no one had said zingo and so she quickly grabbed the victory by yelling in her loudest voice…ZINGO! it was over in a matter of seconds…
and suddenly…
the flood gates opened.

heartbroken becks sobbed while his parents tried to remind him that the rules were the rules and that he needed to remember them in order to play the game correctly. after all, they had been practicing the rules for some time.

soon though, the lesson paid off and the very next game he covered his board and yelled…BINGO! ha. bingo, zingo…it all works!
our sweet little guy. winning isn’t the most important part of a game. learning and doing your best is. besides, winning wouldn’t be as fun if you never lost. we love you, baby boy!
