It's not who wins.....

Kenny, Madelyn and Ellie were playing Candyland in the living room floor. For those of you who don't know, Kenny is fiercely competitive- to the point of no return. They were playing along and Kenny said "Oh it looks like Ellie is winning". A few minutes passed and Ellie drew a gumdrop card from the deck that put her considerably ahead of both Kenny and Madelyn. Suddenly Madelyn threw her game piece, threw the cards and said " I don't want to play anymore". I was shocked for a moment as I looked at her and saw "Kenny Jr.". Kenny was equally shocked and seemed even more confused at the image of himself in his daughter. We both started laughing. I said "Kenneth Malcolm, that is all you....and it appears that you might want to start teaching your daughter about sportsmanship". He turned to Madelyn and said "Do whatever it takes to win" :)
