Andrew is on Chris as soon as he gets home from work; "Daddy, you gonna play your game now?"
He follows him around like a lost little puppy until Chris gives in and turns on his PS3.
Personally, I love when Chris plays because that means both kids are sitting in the living room with him while I'm in the bedroom, reading, watching T.V or just sitting there enjoying being by myself.
When I come out this is what I find.. and of course I can't help but to catch it on video.
Andrew will hold his pee for so long, that he's crying for Chris to pause the game while he goes to the bathroom. He doesn't want to miss a moment.
We've explained to Andrew many, many times that what he sees on Daddy's game is NOT real! We do not hurt or kill in real life. He seems to understand. "Okay, I already know that!" he answers every time.
Chris used to have a video game that showed really inappropriate things, like boobies and the man picking up a hooker. He got rid of that one, because there is no way Chris can play a game without Andrew sitting right beside him.
After Chris shuts off the PlayStation, I will find Andrew running to his playroom to find one of his many swords or guns to pretend he's fighting bad guys.
I also get a whole story about what he saw on the video game. That's about the time my eyes glaze over and I reminisce on how relaxed I was while they were playing, all Andrew sees is a smile on my face he has no idea that I've tuned him out.
Do you have kids that like to watch video games? Do you approve?
