Do you play the slug buggy game w/ your kids?

You know, when you see a VW Beetle & you tap the person & say "slug buggy"? My dau takes full advantage of my concentration on the road & gets me all the time! lol :p

  • Sort of. No slugging in our car, but we keep an eye out for them. My dh and oldest son created a points system. Vintage ones get 2 points, new ones get 1 point. Convertible tops add an extra point and if one comes up from behind and no one notices it until it passes then it is called a sneak attack and gets 3 points.

    Sounds complicated, but the boys LOVE it.

  • Yes.

    No intention of teaching him any of the other variations, he's bad enough with the bugs. Apparently, there are a few living at the apartment complex up the road, so he'll crane his neck to check the parking lot when we drive past *sigh*
