Mother May I?
This was a game that we played as kids, and I'm sure many of you did as well. My memory is playing it with my two sisters in the living room.
Who ever was the "Mother" would stand on the fireplace, while the other two of use "children" were on the other side of the room by which we called "The Pass-through". The two children would take turns asking "Mother may I, take' x' giant/regular/baby steps forward/backward?" "Mother" would reply with either a "yes," or a "No you may not, you make take ' x' giant/regular/baby steps forward/backward." Whoever made it across the room and touched mother first would win. It was totally a game of favorites, but fun nonetheless. Boy did we get creative. I remember taking somersaults, cartwheels and airplanes forward and backward.
