Wii did it.

I relented and let them get a Wii. I must say we have a decent system going right now. We had enough on the gift cards to get 4 controllers, the main system, and a few games. I made sure most of the games can handle 4 players at one time.

So far everyone is loving it and fights have been at a minimum. I put all the names on pieces of paper and put them in a basket. When it is time to play, I draw out names. Those that are left out for the first round will be guaranteed to play the next round. They all seem to think this a fair way of deciding on who plays. We shall see how it goes in the future.

I have played a couple of games and definitely think we can all have a good time with it. Next up is to figure out which Wii fitness program to get for me.

Tonight after the girls head to bed, I expect a Wii tournament or tow to happen before the ball drops at midnight.

Happy New Years!

To Wii or not to Wii?

That is the question. The children want to pool together their gift cards and purchase a Wii. They have enough for a basic system, another controller, and a game or two depending on the cost of the games.

I admit I am intrigued with getting one, but we already have an XBox 360. This was also a collective purchase 4 years ago or so. It does get used, but do we need another video game system? I am undecided and the children are begging to go one and I am getting tired of listening to them.

I think if get one, a treat to myself will Wii Fit or the new one with Jenny McCarthy, Your Shape. That way I can get some exercise in while the girls are napping. That may be what tips the scales in the children’s favor for getting the Wii.
