Peter and I coming down on different sides of a theoretical argument, no heated words. He wants to buy another gaming system, a Wii. (I realize that as far as this Christmas is concerned that ship has sailed, none to be found.) I have already broken my in-my-head agreement with myself that we would never have one of any kind. Which is a bother to me not to him, since I didn't tell him until the last second. I just assumed we would never have one. We have a playstation2. The boys play it together some. Mostly on the weekends because we don't allow it on school days. He wants to get it because the games are so family friendly and the boys could all play it together, which would be great. I can totally see his point, it would promote family togetherness. I, however, would prefer that the boys just play with toys and such. I really try to limit the amount of time the kids play the playstation.
Now here's the super crazy part. I don't feel like I can tell Peter this. (And by writing this will not be some backhanded, manipulating way of telling him, he doesn't read my blog.) It's not about submission, I know he would love my input and really wants it. It is has to do with him knowing more about boys than I do. I so told you it was crazy.
