Can you hear that sound? Can you? That's the sound of my kids suddenly realising that mum wasn't kidding when she said the Wii is hers.
The epiphany occoured in the middle of EB Games when the 3 of them stood there with their mouths open after I said:
"You play this? (copy of Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers) After what you did to MY Zelda? You've got to be kidding!"
The eldest was the only one to come out of his shock long enough to squeak "You can't be serious?!" My reply:
'I might let you watch me play it'
Eldest started into a full fledged argument about how mean and nasty etc etc etc.
I calmly turned to him and said:
"Keep going and all you'll be watching is the wall of your room"
Then I smiled.
Kids keep looking at me sideways.
When we got home they had got over a portion of their shock and were gearing up to watch mum play. I calmly informed them that I still have some school work to do...jobs before play kids!...I might get to play it later tonight....after you've gone to bed
*sigh* My day has been beautiful.
