Play Together, Play Divided


It’s a busy day today. My parents call our family and many relatives together to have lunch and supper together in a restaurant.
It’s a bit far away from that restaurant to our home, so Sam drives us there in the forenoon. Miaomiao’s grandparents also come together. There are already many people there when we arrive at the restaurant. My parents, my younger sister, her son Danny, my younger brother, his girlfriend, my five aunties, uncles, their daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren are all there.
Danny is happy to see Miaomiao and take her hand to play with her immediately after he sees her. They run for a while and play mahjong together on a spare mahjong table. Sevral of my aunties’ grandchildren run and yell beside, but both Miaomiao and Danny don’t play with them together. Maybe because they two don’t familiar with those children, and those children are also not familiar with them. Miaomiao and Danny play together, and those children play together. They are divided into two camps. Until we start to have lunch, Miaomiao and Danny are still playing together alone.
From this thing i find kids also like to play with their familiar friends rather than the unacquainted ones. It’s ok when there is someone familiar to play with. But if there isn’t someone familiar, how to get to know the unacquainted ones and make new friends, is a lesson they all should to learn.
