Mom

It’s been a while

Hello there! πŸ‘‹

How has everyone been?

I’ve been very busy, but life has finally slowed down a little. It seems I have seen the worst and best of humanity this year, and as it comes to a close, I have done a lot of reflecting.

We all have a story to tell, and this coming year, I am challenging myself to tell my story.

Skyrim on the Switch and Valor on the Wrists

In 2018 I want to be more attentive to others now that I have spent time building myself. Our family is journeying into our next step.

My initial plan for this blog was as a hobby to pass time while I was home with my son. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

If you are a blogger who blogs with young children, I envy you.

I barely had the brain competence to game after a long day of parenting, followed by a long night of parenting. Forget sharing things with people who are not bringing me food. 🍜

Now that my children are more self entertaining, and obsessed with anything Super Mario, the plan is to open up to new experiences and people, and figure out what makes us tick as a working gaming oiling family.

Here’s to 2018! πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠβœŒπŸ‘

My coat collar always does that. It hates me.

Video Games

Changing Discs

As per our usual routine, B decided to take a nap.

Usually when B decides to take a nap, I get excited. That is at least one hour of uninterrupted game play! This is when I sit in my chair, latch on my baby, and get ready for Titan spamming. Since I started thinking hardcore about my Rinoa post for My Female Gaming Role Models, I thought, I’m just going to play VIII again. We’re talking put my PS disc in my PS3.

So here I am, sitting in my chair. Check. Baby latched on. Check. Alright here we go.

About half way through nap time, I get a dreadful thought, as the parade for the sorceress comes to a close.

I’m going to have to change discs.

Wait.. What?

I’m trying to make the battle draw on, (heehee get it. DRAW. ok i’m done), but eventually Edea slings her silver tongued insult at me and the ice is flying.

I save my game. Slowly.

That oh so familiar screen comes onto the television. “Please insert Disk 2”. I look down at B, still all snuggly and asleep, and then at my playstation, on the other side of the room.

I’ll just move him a little, and then…. He begins to stir, and settles back into a less convenient position.

Titan it is…..
