Yeah, I beat want some too?

(super mom in training)
Let me just say this . . .
I play to WIN.
My kids . . .
Well, they play to win also.
This doesn't fly with momma though.
I refuse to give in.
I refuse to let them SLIDE BY.
Or rather
Yep, you heard me.
I don't care if you are 4 or 54.
I am in it to win it.

And don't you dare give me that "Gomomma (aka grandma) always lets me win."
You still aren't getting any freebies.
I aint your GOMOMMA (aka grandma).

NO, you can't reroll the dice until you get a number that you like.
YES, I saw you move your game piece one more time than it should have been moved.
NO, you can't have another guess . . .WAIT UNTIL YOUR NEXT TURN!
NO, I didn't give you the "bad" cards.
I am just lucky, I guess?

And for the love of monkeys, please don't pout when I beat ya.
(There's no crying in CONNECT FOUR.)
Suck it up and try again next time.

Now, who wants to play with me?

This is so cute! I was always trying to re-roll the dice when I was a kid because I didn't like the numbers I got. That totally didn't fly with my family though! :)
