I gotta learn how to make a slide show.

Here is the Girl's reaction to her new toy, Dance Dance Revolution. Click to see a classic Girl face. The Boy is telling her that this was his idea. OK, I'll let him take credit. Please ignore mess on hall chair. Kids use this as a closet despite the fact that there is a hall closet oh, 3 feet to the left. I'm choosing my battles, as they say in parenting books.

Here's the Boy trying it out after we set it up, but before she got home. He was having fun beating the game, but he's going to have to learn how to control the game through the mat. It's kind of confusing. Pretend you don't see the mess on the coffee table. This is a perfect example of what I'm always bitching about vis a vis the Girl. This is all her crap that she leaves all over the place. Time to stuff it all into another bag, I guess.

Here's the Girl dancing her tushy off on DDR. She's getting 'big air' in the second picture. She's been at it for over an hour now, and she's still jumping. I so love it when I score big with something and it keeps them busy for a long time.

I think we've got a huge hit here, if the Boy stops trying to control the Xbox. That could be a real issue. I think we're going to have some rule setting to do.

Update: They were up playing on this until well after midnight when I shut it down. I've never seen them play together so cooperatively for so long. Maybe 6 hours without one major fight. It's a miracle!

Holy crap, I gotta have that. How young a kid do you think could do it? Bella would freak.

I know you can blog pics directly from flickr...can you blog a flickr slideshow? Probably not, or we'd have seen someone do it by now.

Look at me, I'm up Margalit late.
