Gin Rummy Rocks!

We woke up Sunday to the sound of raindrops on the roof. A slow, steady pitter-pat that is hypnotizing to listen to and made me want to stay in bed all day.

But, when you have children, staying in bed is not an option. Little Man came bounding in about 8:00 am wanting me to get up and play gin rummy.

Whoa kid, let Mama at least get a cup of coffee!

I have great memories of playing gin rummy with my Grandmother and Mother as a child. It was so thrilling to play a game where you could be on an equal playing field with an adult - and win! I love carrying on this tradition and playing cards with my son. And he's good too.

I won the first two games and then he spanked me by winning the next seven games in a row!

Little Stinker.
