I am so excited that it's finally Friday. This week has been complete and total chaos for me. I have so much to tell you all I just haven't had the time or energy to get on here and post but I promise over the weekend and next week I will fill you all in.
To start I will share a picture and a story from this week.
Of course this is the Ian man and he was playing Mario Cart on our new Wii. Can you tell he is addicted to this game???? He loves it and wants to play it all the time and for a three year old he is pretty good most of the time. For some reason by the time I got home Monday night I was so worn out and even though it was nice outside I couldn't bring myself to go outside with the kids. Yes I know bad mom but I just couldn't so instead I bribed my kids with the Wii. Emma decided early on that she wanted to go upstairs and watch a movie but Ian wanted to keep playing. About five minutes later a very frustrated Ian decides that since he can't get his kart to turn and go the right way he could throw the wheel at the entertainment center. Well that was the end of video games for the night and Ian spent some time up in his room to cool down. After that I didn't think to much about it.
Tuesday evening after we came in from outside and the kids had their baths they had about 30 minutes left until bedtime. Ian asked me if I would play a the freight train song (No Leaf Clover) on our Metallica Guitar Hero for him. Of course I couldn't say no to him but once the song was over Ian asked if he could try. So I started him on Tuesday's Gone in the beginner mode and showed him what to do but of course he didn't want my help. The first time Ian got booed off stage rather quick but I started the song again and was surprised at how well he was doing. Well I was thirsty so I started towards the kitchen to get something to drink and I heard some of the booing start but I decided to let it go. Just as I was coming back in the room Ian got booed off the stage and next thing I knew he was throwing the guitar across the living room.
In Ian's defense I really think the boy gets this honestly. In the past Dave has been known to throw things at walls when frustrated or even pick up a couch and slam it to the ground the same day he came home from the hospital because the Cleveland Browns weren't playing very well. Back to the point though, I am a little concerned that if Ian is already throwing things at three what is going to happen at thirteen? I guess I will have to wait and see, wish me luck.
Now it's your turn to head over to Candid Carries and share your picture.
