Star Wars Dane Wars

Dane is addicted to Lego Star Wars for the Wii. A-DDIC-TED. I have started setting a timer for him because if I didn't - he would play all day long. I will admit for a 3 year old he had some mad skills - he is getting better and better and can navigate a lot of boards that he couldn't at first.

It is a good game for the younger crowd - I think it was hard finding games that were appropriate for EC (early childhood) for the Wii, but now we have quite a few. The boys love Carnival Games, Circus Games, Wii Fit and Lego Star Wars.

Don't tell them, but for Easter we are going to get them Lego Batman for the Wii. They have been asking for it - but really we are getting it because Jamie and I are getting bored of Star Wars (oh, did I forget to mention that we are slightly addicted to that game too! lol)


Ok, well he can't really run *yet* but he already has developed the "oh shit - I'm caught - let me get the hell out of dodge" crawl. It cracks me the hell up. Seriously - if he is doing something he's not supposed to be doing and I say "COLT! What are you doing?" He starts crawling away as fast as he can in the other direction and after he has cleared the offensible area he will turn to look at me.

I don't know why I think it's sweet - It only gets worse from here.

Hunter Can WORK It!

So, I am writing this quick note before I forget what he did this morning. While we were waiting for the bus, Hunter and Dane were being mean to each other - typical bus stop morning. Well this morning, Hunter grabbed Dane around the neck for something (who ever really knows!) and so I gave his hand a little pinch. I am a firm believer in if you can dish it - then you can take it.

Well, anywho- he FREAKED out over the pinch and just started mouthing off - bad. Fortunately for him and his future life - the bus was pulling up so I calmly said "Now, when you get home from school you can go straight to bed - think about that all day." He instantly got that "oh crap - I'm sorry - I'm sorry - I'm sorry" face as he got out of the car. So he started across the road to the bus - got half way there, turned around and blew me like 5 kisses with the sweetest most innocent smile ever. HA! He NEVER blows me kisses - he was totally trying to butter me up!!!! lol Well, it worked - I was cracking up.
