Some of you may think I've really lost it when I tell you that I squealed with delight as our sons presented me with the Wii game system for Mother's Day. That's right, I squealed!
I was hoping for the game system for Christmas (I sound like a little girl) but being the hottest thing last year; our sons were unable to secure one.
You may be asking yourself "Why would a 50 something woman want a Wii game system?"
The answer is simple and multifaceted:
1) It will give our sons one more reason to come home just to hang out with their "parental units".
2) It's an opportunity to invite the neighbors in for a time of fun and fellowship as we challenge each other to a game of bowling, tennis or whatever other games are on the system.
3) The "Wii Fitness" will be available in June and I'm always looking for a new way to get in shape without exercising beside 20 somethings in their thong leotards at the Y.
4) Having a fun electronic game system is on my list of 51 things I've always wanted to do.
I'll share more about my list of 51 things in an upcoming blog.
When our son was checking out with the system he said the cute, young cashier made a comment about him enjoying the Wii and Josh said "Oh, it's not for me, it's for my mom!" The cashier replied, "You're kidding, what a cool mom!" Josh answered "You're right, my mom's the coolest!"
So there you have it... I'll let you decide.
Am I a cool mom or one crazy lady?
Please share your Mother's Day experience with us.
