Christmas for Boys!

So this Christmas I am considering something that will go against everything I have said in the last 5 years. I am not only eating my words but I am taking big gulp full’s of them. We are considering getting a Wii for our children.  My son is home schooled and very active.  It takes huge amounts of energy to keep him stimulated and attentive.  Sometimes I can’t seem to fill our days with enough activity.  Other days I find myself chasing him as we run up and down every wall in our house. My son needs a way to get out some energy while I continue to mother the other three or catch my breath.  

This holiday season Peace on Earth takes on a whole new meaning at our house.  Join me at Blissfully Domestic and read about my journey into video-hood!

We're getting Wii this year too for our kids. We figure we've done a good job of holding out this long and the kids are finally asking for it; so why not.

That is a big gulp moment! Though I very much understand why you're doing this. My brother-in-law did the same for his highly "kinetic" son and it worked well until they got the regular games. Then all the active-related ones were put aside and now he just sits and blows things up. Keep track on what people buy him as gifts!

Thanks! That is our rule too! We only want to use this for activity and not for violent games etc.. I am a little worried because it is a slippery slope!
