UnDomestic

Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

A 6 year old's request


The other day Cameron came up to me and so nonchalantly asked, "Mom, can you get something for me?"

I figured it was going to be something like oatmeal, snack cakes, or some other food item that we had run out of.

"Well, what is it?" I asked, ready to add to my evergrowing mental grocery list.

"A Wii," he responded, as if he had merely asked me for a juicebox, not some few hundred dollar video game system. (This is the one where you physically "play" some of the games).

"No!" I retorted, laughing in disbelief.

He persisted with complete calmness. "But mom, we can play games as a family. Like we can play tennis together, or golf, or boxing....as a family"

Oh sure, boxing...this child obviously needs a little sense knocked into him.

Cari-

Seriously, that kid has some amazing talent. He uses colour, and space, really well.

We love the picture he sent.

Nice. He must have been chatting with my oldest. That's the same logic he's using.

How about a Fisher Price smart cycle? Those look way cool.

Or maybe he's too old for one. I know it depends on the kid.

I am with Cam, I want a Wii also. It looks fun and probaby helps to release a lot of pinned up aggression and stress.

HA!

Especially the boxing!!!!!
