In this day and age, kids are glued to their mobile devices to play various games just like Jodi Sta. Maria’s son, Thirdy. As a mom of a young boy, Jodi tries her best to catch up with trends as a way to connect with her son.
But no matter how much she tries, she couldn’t grasp the somewhat complicated mechanics of modern games. So instead, she plays something much simpler.
“Di ako marunong eh, may dinownload ako (na game) na natutunan kay Thirdy.” Jodi funnily admitted.
“Hindi siya komplikadong game kasi pagpinapanood ko yung mga games ng bata ngayon, sabi ko ‘hay di na to kaya ng brain cells ko.’” She went on to say that she used to play video games when she was younger.
But even though mobile games are such a big hit nowadays, the mother and son still find joy in traditional, well-loved games. In fact, they would spend some quality time in Puzzles, where anyone can play plethora of classic and modern board games and eat delicious food at the same time.
With 350 board games, Jodi and Thirdy easily passes the time with so much fun and excitement. But who wins in these games? Thirdy. The 12-year-old, who is a Basketball champion and an honor student, has a competitive spirit so he doesn’t let anyone even his mom win.
“Si Thirdy very competitive. Ayaw niyang natatalo siya. Gusto niya lagi siyang winner. Motto ata niya is life is a competition. Charing,” she quipped.
