My sons are avid gamers. It’s the one area in which their 7 year age difference appears to disappear. It’s also what allows us to bond as a family.
I purchased a Wii bundle several years ago when Circuit City was going out of business. It was, and still is one of the best “toys” I ever purchased. Not only did I catch a good sale, but its given my family and friends loads of enjoyment over the years that’s fun, active and seems to bond those who play regardless of their age differences!
Since I’ve purchased mine, several family members and friends also brought their own so we are able to trade games and host game nights. This holiday season we got Kirby. It was top on my Tween’s holiday wishlist and he hasn’t stopped playing since!
I have to tell you it saved my sanity a few times when I had the tween and teen’s friends underfoot. Normally, the one room they share is a bevy of noise but after opening the game they allowed me to relax, at least for a bit! I admit I was eventually sucked in. I haven’t been able to beat them YET. They don’t realize I’ve practicing during my blogging hiatus. I can’t wait for the day that I can say “BOOYA! How you like me now?” while thumping my chest! Not very feminine I know but I have to show them I rock!
I even got another Wii game for Three King’s Day because seriously Wii ROCKS. I must admit I opened it and have been practicing, I need to be prepared for when they open their gift. My competitive nature has been activated and I can’t back down now!
Let’s talk: Do you have a Wii? What’s your favorite game?
