WORDLESS & WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

Ever since my oldest son was little, he was infatuated with about every video game console out there (I guess just like every other boy). We started with the first Playstation, then came Game Cube, then PS2, then XBOX 360, PsP, the Wii, and now and Ipod Touch!! If there is someone around and he is getting ready to play a game, he'll ask, "Do you want to watch me play such and such a game?" I always think to myself, "I'm sure..how boring for the other person!!!" My two younger sons will watch him play (sometimes), but then they finally come to their senses!

Well, now that we have our puppy Mocha, I think he's found someone willing to sit there and watch him play his games! What do you think?

That is too funny! Dogs really are a boys best friend!

Krisha said...

I never understood that, too! Growing up, I had younger brothers & they were into video games. Sometimes they would ask if I wanted to to watch....I would wonder, why would I just sit there and watch you? Especially since I wasn't even going to play....LOL

That's cute Mocha sits with him now :)

It's late & I gotta get up in about 4 hours. I got lost in bloggerville!

How funny....must be a boy thing...Ethan and Sawyer always want me to come and watch them play the Xbox. They don't understand how boring it is to sit and watch. I give in sometimes but sometimes I just have to say no. Maybe I should bring our dog Max in and let him watch...lol!!
