Yes, I just played the drinking version of Candy Land with Nathan.
Nathan is still recovering from his surgery, and while he’s had some up moments, he has been having some tough nights. He also doesn’t want to drink, because his throat hurts, etc. He is also not a big fan of ice cream or popsicles at this point, so it’s tough to get anything in to his little body.
So, instead of forcing water down his throat, and playing on his love of board games, dad invents the Candy Land Drinking Game. Pick a card, take a drink of water. Repeat for the entire game. In the end, he ends up drinking all the water in the glass and I don’t have to fight with him to not be dehydrated.
