Earlier this month, Los Angeles extended its stay-at-home orders and we all collectively hit the wall. I couldn’t face another game of Candyland, even with the help of my tribe, gin & tonic. In a desperate move, I dug out Levon’s plastic bowling set, plugged in his party light, and turned our hallway into a cosmic bowling lane.
Mommy, can you bowl with me?
After a 29 hour day, I’d had just enough gin to go all in. We dimmed the lights, cranked the classic rock, and the whole family bowled a full 10 frames. It quickly became a legitimate competition between the four adults and turned out to be as much fun for us as it was for Levon. I highly recommend it for both kids and the 21-and-over set.
