I knew this day would come. I was looking forward to it. The day when my girls realized that they were good enough to take on their dad in a no-holds-barred game of Mario Kart on the Wii. There was a lot of screaming and whining but this time it was coming from me. I couldn’t figure out how they were able to maneuver so fast and quick around obstacles. Of course, like any good gamer will tell you; they practiced and learned the secrets of the game. I couldn’t come close. The best I can do was finish 5th. They were either first or second. I’m a proud Daddy Gamer.
This, I thought to myself, is what gaming is all about. It’s about having fun, being silly and competing. I just wished we could do this more often. I have a feeling that we will. Now, that they know that they can beat Daddy at video games. Of course, I will take a beating like this any day if it means I can spend a couple of hours being together and laughing with them.
