Christmas aftermath

WE GOT A WII!!! That is a direct quote from all 3 of my children when asked what Santa brought them.

So here is the story. Ryan got up at 6 am one Sunday morning and went to wait outside the Circuit City to buy The Wii. After 2 hours he bought #16 of 18 and we got the prize for best parents ever.

The best part though? We were at Toys R Us ("toys yes" as Luke calls it) a few days later buying games to go with the Wii (buy 3 get 1 free!) and the sales clerk asked us if we needed a Wii. "Why?" we ask. "I have 2 here to sell," he says as he pats his shirt pocket. It was reminiscent of a Rolex salesman on a crowded city street. So what do we do? Say "Sure we'll take one," and immediately call our friends who are also in search of the elusive system. Now they are the best parents ever as well. Maybe it helps make up for the fact that we bought ours on Sunday. I don't know. I do know that there are 2 young boys very happy that they got a Wii for Christmas from "Santa" and we had a hand in making that happen.

At any rate we have happy kids, a new interactive babysitter(as opposed to the sitting and watching cartoons), and as we found out yesterday, a new form of punishment when they break the rules. (No Wii for the rest of the week!)
