Gamer brain...

Video killed the radio star, and video games have killed the brain cells of my children.

This weekend, I had the following conversation with Jack.

Me: Hey, buddy...look. That's where Bubba will go to school next year. That will be his new school.

Jack: He's going there tomorrow?

Me: No, sweetie...not tomorrow. I said next year.

Jack: mean after these home days? On Monday?

*Thank goodness he's so pretty!*

Me: No...I said next YEAR! Like, after he finishes fourth grade.

Jack:, what comes after fourth? Oh yeah...fifth. After he beats this level, he'll go to the fifth grade at that school?

*Yes, son. That's exactly what I mean. After he defeats the dragon and saves the princess at your school...he's going to a new world!*

Me: have got to lay off the video games!

lol That's too funny! I seem to find myself in some equally frustrating conversations with Justin, the video game king around here. I have to remind myself to take deep breaths and not to knock his head off! Drives me nuts!

Well, he is pretty. That will take him far in life! ;o) Video games are bad. i think I will pretend they don't exist and not ever let Natey play. Bwahahahaha. Yeah that sounds like an excellent plan!

He's pretty AND funny!!! ;) Isn't that just insane! I imagine that when I am commenting on blogs, that is what I sound like:

Kid: Mom can I have a life size snicker for breakfast?
Me: Sure
Kid: Really, that is awesome.
Me: Wait what did I say yes to???? UGHHH

LOL! It's amazing how these kids have forgotten the "old fashion" way of playing and having fun!!
