Wii are obssessed!

So the hot Christmas talk around our house from all FOUR boys is about who will be getting a Wii (the new video game system, for you old-timers). On the way to school this morning, the conversation went something like this: "Well mom, the Herndons are getting a Wii." "Sarah and Emma are getting a Wii." "Mom, even Michael is getting a Wii!"

--Ah, ha! My in...

"Well boys, Michael is an only child. Would you rather have brothers, or a Wii?" As the oldest, F smiled at me and replied dutifully, "Brothers, of course." As middle child, G expressing in his --Tell it like it is Dr. Phil mentality--cried, "No brothers--I want a Wii!!," as he chortles his evil villian laugh.

There will be no laughter in the house on Christmas morning when the Wii is nowhere to be found, and we return to a simpler time...(did that sound "dickens-y" enough in it's tone of Christmas despair?)

That is so funny. I already decided that we aren't going to start the video game thing cause how do you ever end it.

I must commend you on the use of the word "chortles". You are an amazing wordsmith! By the way, I got the word "wordsmith" from one of your previous posts...the one where you were describing G's use of the word "telekenesis" (by the way...I still need to look up the word telekenesis) Jaime, thank you so much for your help with my blog! Oh, hey...the words Post(Atom) doesn't appear on your blog now...does it only appear if you are looking on your own blog?
