Alyssa and Daddy invented a special game. The Head Game. Basically, two people butt heads until one gives up out of pain. The reason it is Alyssa's game is because she is the champion of hard heads!
This is one instance where being hard-headed pays off. She loves to win. Is that a middle child thing? To invent a game that only you can win...She loves it. Loves to play it. Loves to win it!
The Head Game, it's what we do for fun. Try it sometime. Alyssa is really Daddy's girl. She uses her stellar memory to recite the line-ups to the Rockets and Astros. She is totally involved in the game. Basketball, football or baseball. She is especially involved in the mascots. Remember she loves animals.
Recently Andrew gave her a big stuffed Clutch (the Rocket's mascot) doll. She exclaimed happily, "This is the best gift ever!"
Made his day.
This coming from the hardest head in the family.
