Last summer the boys got a Nintendo DS with Mario Cart. I wasn’t sure if they would be able to grasp the concept of a this type of game but within minutes they had the game figured out and were competing against each other! A further reminder that my boys are definitely not having the childhood I did. Although I did love Super Mario Bros as a kid.
Saturday afternoons are quiet around our house. After hockey in the morning and a healthy lunch the boys are ready for some Nintendo DS time. New games are full of exploration and excitement. The challenge of understanding how it works, what the objective is and the experience of sharing your victories with your friends/family is all part of the fun.
Between winter colds and absolutely freezing temperatures the boys loved having time to explore their new games and they definitely beat the winter blues with Nintendo DS.
I love that when one is playing the other likes to watch and “help” from the sidelines. True brotherly love! Their current favourite is Mario & Luigi Paper Jam because they really like to see characters they are familiar with in a different setting. Chasing after paper toads, princesses and experiencing a whole new land.
