A world of Wii

Whoever owns one of these knows what am talking about. My hubby dear wanted this game since it was released in 2007. Well, to be precise.... one day we were at the mall and they had set up Wii game in the centre. Anyone interested could go and try out the games. First thing my hubby wants, is to try .. ofcourse Tennis. The minute he tried it, he was soooo impressed and wanted that..

Then last summer lil fella tried the Mario racing game at Best buy. That was it, every time we would go in that store, he wanted to go and try other games. At friends house he got a taste of other fun games like cow racing.!! now both the boys wanted it.

So atlast after a yr it was introduced, 3 months ago we brought this little Wii home. Since it's arrival there is joy in those 2 pairs of eyes.. They want to try that every chance that they get. My lil champ liked the boxing and now none of us can beat him in that.. It's hillarious to watch him fight and most of the time he knocks out his opponent.. Mostly he used to fight with the computer generated.. one day hubby dear tried his hand. I saw my son put in so much energy , I slowly told hubby to go easy.. Next min he was knocked out.. one look at my hubby's face and I knew he didn't try to be easy, but my son had beaten him anyway.!!!! I was trying to contain my laughter, but my hubby was still in awe as to how this lil kid could defeat him.. But till date it's my son who wins the game & now hubby dear has given up and he lets him play agaist the comp generated opponents.. hehehehe..

Now he's on his way to top bowling.. Recently since he's been watching his dad play Tennis ( which btw dad's PRO now ) he wanted to try that one too. It's amazing how nowadays kids pick up so much so quickly..

I have always been against video games and those war games etc.. But Wii is kinda different. You could get into more of entertainment stuff, but we like the basic games that we have got now.. with all the sports packages.. It's introducing us and our lil champ to different kinda of games and it's rules,.... which otherwise I atleast wouldn't have cared to learn.

Still, game is a game.... But if you know your limits and not boggle down to get addicted, I think few of these could be real pleasure... It sure has become a crowd pleaser in my house now.. :o)

Kick-start resolution.!!

I am writing my blog after long gap.. Well, I was thinking that my new year resolution should have been that I keep up with my writing and keep my blog alive and kicking. (Nowadays am experiencing different kind of kicking.!! ) But I guess, it took half a month to dawn on me that I just thought about it, but no action was taken on that part.

So now, just to kick-start.... ( like the old bajaj scooter!! heheeh.. If you had one at home, you would have known what I am talking about.. First thing in the morning, you have to literlly pray to it that it starts. Then tilt it to one side, whichever side suitable for the driver so he doesn't fall off trying to do that.. Then try kicking.. Continue the process until it starts.! Now it seems hillarious, but when you are getting late for school bus and you are waiting patiently for your dad to start it and drop you... You know what am talking abt. :o). )

Well, I wanted to say that just to kick-start I wanted to write something.. Whatever came to my mind.. It's funny how I just kept writing this particular piece.. Anyways, am trying to keep up with my writing.. and hopefully you all forgive me for not writing so long and keep coming back to check on me.. Adios for now.!
