Wiped out by Patty-Cake

Have you ever played such an intense game of patty-cake that you had to take a nap afterwards?

If this was an Olympic sport, I think this little guy would be a star. I took these photos yesterday during the Men’s Triathlon in London.

  1. Ok, since you are right there in the midst of the Olympics, I think you should make an appearance before the Olympic committee and suggest patty-cake as a new Olympic sport. It would be amazing!! I would totally get the gold medal :).

    I love it. Keeps small ones busy while adults are watching Olympics

      Exactly. It’s important that kids can entertain themselves. And these two, who are think are brothers, were cute to watch. At one point it looked like they were telling jokes and they would both just giggle.

    • TBM says:

      did your boys play like this?

      • Beth Ann says:

        Nope—not patty cake at least!!! 🙂 And if the younger one would tell you he would say he got pounded by his older brother…..though I don’t think it was really all that bad. I think his memory is a tad distorted on that one since I did not allow that type of behavior!

    Great fun – rock, paper, scissors is a big favourite in my house – we’re all a bunch of big kids and we have to resort to such things simply to resolve who will answer the door or the phone!
    Not played patty-cake since school!

    but don’t you love the intensity of children

    That’s so cute! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen patty cake played, or even played myself. It can be intense. Poor kids, but at least they are getting some rest now.
