Here We Go!

Spent last night unlocking Mario Kart characters for my children, I needed the practice as well because they're too good! I also wanted them to think that I was kind of a big deal and admire the achievement. They were impressed, mission accomplished! 

For the majority of the evening we enjoyed popcorn and raced around the varied tracks. I increased the difficulty, to add another dimension to the gameplay and introduced online play which was easy to set up through the wireless connection. It only started to go wrong when my son changed into his alter ego, the boy that doesn't like finishing in anything but first place or anyone looking in his direction. I'm guilty of winding him up at times but he does invite the remarks. We later switched to a game that had Billiards available, he was confident but wouldn't listen to instructions and that's when we felt his wrath! That was the end of the videogame session for the evening, although before bed he still managed to spend some time with my brother(s). I wish he wasn't such a bad loser, he reminds me of myself when I was younger so I'm sure he'll grow out of it, or will he...
