Got my butt whooped by girls! Life is great.

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.
