E has been learning to play chess for a few months now. It started off with us having to remind her at every move what each piece could do. It was kind of a pain, but at the same time, you could just move your pieces across the board without having to worry much about getting captured.
It gradually began to be a little more of a challenge when playing against her, and then one day…. BAM! Out of no where she starts beating us! M and I have been more on our guard lately because we know what’s she’s capable of, so this does not happen regularly (yet). Just by watching her giggling and bouncing around in her chair, with an innocent look of naivete, you would never guess how quickly the tables can turn. She’s very good at getting behind your lines and fully achieving a complete massacre.
Watch out Grandma! She’s been practicing!
