For the past two nights the girls and I have been having a shared Angry Birds round robin competition with Angry Birds, Rio. Actually, nobody is keeping score, but we’re all crammed together on my bed with the iPad. The girls take turns having a round of five with me on whichever level we’re on. We trade back and forth until her five turns have been completed and then she switches places with another girl. Sometimes the levels are really hard and we go through almost all of them before winning that level. Other times, the level gets mastered on the first try.
When this happens, it is almost always Millie who does it. She’s pretty amazing. In fact, the last round we did went through me and Chloe, me and Katie, and me and Maddie. I had just called it over for the night, but then said, “Hey Millie, come here a second – I just want to see what you can do with this one.” She came over, watched me do it once (and fail) and then took her turn. Bam, bam, bam. She nailed it on her first try.
All hail our 7-year-old Angry Birds Jedi Master. Do you have some pesky monkeys hanging around? Millie knows what to do.

My 5yr-old is the Angry Birds master in this house. And the kid is *persistent.* His 15- and 16-year-old cousins have been known to hand over their iPod Touches to him and ask him to beat a level for them…which he does, handily.
That’s hilarious. My 12yo was actually pretty bummed that she couldn’t get it but her 7yo sister could. She came down a bit ago saying, “I’m not good at ANYTHING.” We had a quick little talk about what was really true there and what she should WANT to be good at. In other words, aim higher than Angry Birds. *grin*
