Adventures of the Wii

Aaaahhhh a Wii. Something my boys (well, oldest son) would love to have in our home. Wait a minute…something I would love to have in our home.


Some friends of ours were in town this weekend and wanted to stop by…sure, no problem. Come to find out, they had brought their Wii with them. (Good thing we let them come over!)


It was so much fun! First, it was fun watching my oldest son and their daughter bowl (We played Wii Sports). It was even more fun watching them play tennis. My oldest went “wild”. That means instead of waiting for the ball to come to him and then swing, he kept swinging the whole time.


Next, it was hubby and my turn to play. We played tennis. I missed the first ball. I realized I can’t see the ball. I put on my glasses. I played better…I think. I was trying to play when my son shouts “Go wild Mom!”. So I went “wild”. I played much better when I went “wild”. If I tried to play the real way, I lost. If I was “wild” I won. I loved it!


Then we played baseball. I didn’t do as well. My hubby seemed to only be able to hit the ball when it was a female at bat…I don’t know what to make of that. Me, well, I didn’t play so well.


Boxing. Boxing was FUN!!! I had taken a kick boxing class and had wondered if it would help. Not really. But it was so much fun. I wanted to keep playing but I knew I had to share. Drat. This setting an example for the little ones can really be a drag at times.


Anyway, it confirmed my thinking that maybe as a family Christmas present we should try to get a Wii. Oh, and let our friends come over at any time! Thanks M and L!!!
