We've Created a Monster

Anyone who knows me knows that I hate the Xbox. Unless it's Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk, I think video games are a ridiculous waste of time and make me an unhappy single mom. This is a fact that I do not hide at all--much to the chagrin of Jon! Well, Jon loves playing video games. One of his favorites is Hockey. I don't have major qualms with Hockey because at least it's not a shooting game, but now we have bigger problems. Sevy is hooked. We try to put her to bed and she hears daddy playing and jumps up saying "I want to play hockey." That's right, she cannot say love, but she can beg to play hockey. She likes to sit with Jon with her controller to play along. Luckily she doesn't realize that her control isn't connected, but frankly, I wouldn't notice either! She just loves to be included with what the boys are doing. Fantastic!
(For anyone who doesn't know, this is Jon, Sevy, and Uncle Kris playing hockey.)

That is so cute! Just wait though, soon she'll want her controller plugged in too!!

I totally agree with hating the video/computer games! We just got Rock Band and the music never stops. But, I must add the disclaimer that I really like the Wii. :)

She's the cutest little gamer ever. Drew is the same way--only now he knows when his controller isn't on. Unfortunately he's gotten pretty good at the car racing game since that was his reward for peeing in the potty. I blame the daddies on this one.

Payton is the same way! We should seriously hook these two up today and they can waste away there lives happily ever after. Cute post!

I like the picture. She looks really intense.

I've never understood why girls hate video games so much, but I've heard LOTS of girls say that they do. How is it any worse than watching tv?
