Monday Meetings

I told myself when Drew was little that he would not play video games when he was older. They are a waste of time and kids need to be outside playing and enjoying the world. Well....

things change. Meet Drew, the boy who loves to play old-school Mario (original and 3, Zelda, Super Sonic and Mario Quest). He gets so excited when he plays and just loves it. However, he plays it A LOT! Way more than I thought I would ever let him. I blame it fully on the move. While I was unpacking I needed him distracted so I told him to go play a game. Actually, it would be nice if I could blame it on the move, but really it was all me.

Suzie and I have had many conversations about the 'video game problem.' How do you handle it? As of right now I am feeling it out. If he cries about it then no games for the rest of the day. He has to get off of it right when I say and if he does not then no more for the rest of the day and maybe the next. He can not watch Derek play grown up games. It is working right now. I just laugh at how I said he would never play these games and now I play them with him!
