Pick Up 52. Surely you all know the game… also known as 52 Pickup or 52-Card Pickup. A practical joke, most loved by dads or anyone who wanting to have a laugh, which results in kids picking up scattered cards or objects.
One night, after dinner, we were sitting on the lounge floor, playing with Elijah when I heard Justin ask Eli if he wanted to play Pick Up 52. Eli received a pack of Lion King playing card in his recent Birthday Package from Grams and Gramps, and he absolutely loves sitting and going through them. Mostly they just end up on the floor… but still, he loves them! As Justin flicked the entire pack of cards into the air, Eli’s face lit up! He started giggling uncontrollably. And then we did it again… and again… and again. I was therefore able to get a few videos of Elijah’s anticipation and reaction to this “game”.
Side note: Justin is definitely stepping up to the “dad role” of silly joke maker. He says the most ridiculous things sometimes, and we both have to laugh. He almost looks surprised by his own corny jokes!
