U ~ Up-and-Down

  Playing made up games has always been a specialty of all three of us older children in my family, and while we prided ourselves on our imagination, we always just assumed that our little brother Sean would simply be content with playing our games and so on. Never did we imagine though that he would invent his own game that everyone in our family has played at least a few times (though most of us have played it too many times to count.)

  This particularly popular game was invented by Sean when he was but a wee tot, and his favorite thing in the world was a ball. One random day he just happened upon the idea of playing with the ball "up-and-down" the stairs and as he played with Eldon, he added rules, and within an hour or so, he had invented the terrifying and super fun game, affectionately known as "up-and-down."

  I won't go into detail about it because I'm assuming most people are not looking for ways to throw a ball inside their house. If I'm wrong, feel free to let me know.

  Anyways, the point of this whole post was that I love Sean's creativity (not to forget the game he invented) and just wanted to let a few people know that yes, I do have siblings, and they're awesome.


  1. The Up and Down game sounds like something my kids would have enjoyed back in the day. Come to think of it, they still might, even though my youngest is now 21, they are all still young at heart. I think it's awesome that you have awesome siblings, and I'm glad to have read this post!

  2. Actually, I would love to hear how you play this game and what the rules are! Could you post more about it? It is ok as there is nothing near the stairs that can get broken in my house. This game sounds like something I would love to play with my nieces and nephews. Games these days have to be fun enough to tear kids away from some screen in front of their face. Even if they don't enjoy it, I know I will!
