fuss: up and down

This morning after breakfast he wanted to play Chutes & Ladders, so I pulled it out and we sat together on the living room floor with the board spread out between us.

We managed a few rounds before he started trying out his own rules, essentially "I go wherever i want".

"Fuss, ladders go up and chutes go down."

"No, dada, I go down ladders and up slides at the playground."

"I know Fuss, but in this game the rules are ladders only go up, and chutes only go down."

He gave me a flat look, then dug the rules out of the box and made a show of studying them.

"Uh, dada....it says here that ladders go DOWN and chutes go UP."

Fuss in a nutshell.
