Wii for Families

Nintendo WiiThis review of the Nintendo Wii talks about how well it is for families.  Our kids love playing the on the Wii.  Our son is getting very good with the bowling game in Wii Sports.  (I am going to have to get used that at some point soon he will be able to beat me in video games.)

Job description

The kids and I were playing around the pool today.  Our son said that he had to go to work on the other side of the pool. I asked what he does at work, and he said that he "fixes bugs".

 Makes a dad proud!

Sent back lead toys

I finally got around to sending back the Thomas the Train toys that were involved in the recalls. (The toys had been bagged up in the office closet.) Hopefully they will send the replacements soon.  (Not because the kids have played with trains recently, but because I want to make sure that we keep the sets relatively intact.)

When I mentioned this to some coworkers, they mentioned that they had some Thomas the Trains sets, but they are not sending them back, because their kids have grown out of the toys.  This concerns me, becuase as soon as people forget about the recalls, these toys may be passed down to younger kids.

 If you have some of these toys, please have them replaced.
