In our first vlog for the new year, Helen and I show off the new Wii Santa brought our son. (Clever Santa.) We discuss the communal nature of today’s video games, setting video game limits with kids, and violence in Legoland. Helen also talks about a wonderful and slightly gender-bending new children’s book about Emily Dickinson, My Uncle Emily.
I know we’re not the only ones out there who got new Wiis this season. (I’m looking at you, Deb, Liza, and Vikki.) Tell us if or how you’ve set Wii limits with your own kids—or yourselves for that matter. Or do you just stock up on Gatorade and play till you drop?
