Wee Wii!!!!!!!!!!!!

FYI-this is just some random internet photo, not me, and no I am not pregnant!

So, I have basically come undone and promised my child that much-longed- for Wii if he will basically do everything I ask: stay in Spanish, sleep in his own bed; eat breakfast; wear his new coat which he picked, but now hates; make up with his two little friends, with whom he is fighting; be nice to the dog, no matter what; take a bath without fighting; do his homework without complaining; and practice reading. That’s all I ask, oh, and of course that he only plays the Wii on the weekends for one half of an hour.  Am I setting both of us up to fail? Oh yes. But, I dare you to become a parent and not cave into the bribe on occasion. BTW, bribing doesn’t work. I mean, it does for exactly one second. But, I fully expect once the newness of it has worn off, The Kid will resume sneaking into my bed at night; refusing breakfast or wear anything that resembles new clothes (The Kid hates new clothes–he also hates new- used clothes) fighting with his friends; demanding to quit Spanish; complaining  incessantly about his homework and  my torturing him by(gasp!) making him do it; and whatever else I said up there.

    Yay! Welcome to the Wii family :). Check out Gamefly, it’s like netflix for video games. I like it cause you get to try all of the games you want with out having to buy them

      Word. Considering some games are over $50. Perhaps the newness will fade, but hey, that means more Wii for vous! Oui oui Wii!

        Also, the Wii games are really great about people interacting together (unlike those evil, lone-man machines like PS3 & XBox)–so just look forward to fun family times 🙂

    Well, listen: We couldn’t find one! I have been to 3 Targets, and (gasp!) one Wal-Mart, and they are all sold out. And, the ones I can find on the internet are more$$. What the heck? Well, perhaps I can just bring The Kid over to a kind friend’s house who already has such things and we can play away while doing our best to ignore the sweet doggie in the corner??

    Also, in lieu of a Wii, The Kid got a vet clinic from playmobile. It’s awesome, we stayed up late taking care of all the puppies and kitties! There’s a hedgehog too!
