I Knew What He Was When I Picked Him Up...

Yes, I knew that C liked playing video games before we got married. And more than that, I didn't mind. I have my own hobbies; who am I to deem his hobby as one beneath mine? Besides, do I really want a husband who likes to sew as much as I do? I think not. But ever since C got his Wii (cough, cough, the day it was first released), there's just something about this machine that I can't get over: it's just embarrassing.

I know this is an internal struggle I've had for some time. I don't like doing things that I know will make me look silly. You'd think at 30 years old, I'd be over this. But I'm not. So when C picked out "Guitar Hero" with his Christmas money, I cringed inside. But he really enjoys it, so what's a girl to do? Take his picture, of course.

But what I can not explain is how he convinced me to play. I had NEVER before even touched his Wii controllers and he somehow got me to play that dumb guitar?!

What I can explain, however, is the outcome. That was pretty much a given.

My husband is the same way. I had no idea he would continue to play video games. He's past 40 now. He also has the guitar hero and the Wii. He does play the games with our kids. So that's a good thing. I'm hoping that the effect on them is as good as if he'd played, say, a board game or something with them.

So great. Love it. BTW, you can't even tell you are pregnant with the guitar in hand! You look great!

I absolutely love the title of this post. That quote comes in so handy.

I second Linda's comment. You are looking great.

Oh I love guitar hero! There is definitely something about it that just lures people in! Keep practicing, you'll be a junkie in no time!

Love your faces as you play! Classic!

I love the title. My husband and I use that quote all the time. I thought we were the only ones!

Love the Wii!

You are a good sport for letting him have a gaming system. I have band them from our house. Not that all the TV watching I do is any better.

love the title! I'm so out of the gaming loop, but I've heard tons about Guitar Hero and how addictively fun it is. I'm sure my score would look something like yours though. Love the pics!
