I Quess I Need to be More Clear...

Last week (2/11/09) it was absolutely GORGEOUS out.  Yet Ty was still sitting inside playing his new DS games (birthday presents).  I'd asked, no less than 30 times, if he wanted to do something outside.  Soccer.  No.  Bike Ride. No.  Baseball.  No.  Frisbee.  No.  Rollerskate.  No.  Trampoline.  No.

By 3:30, I'd had it!  There was no way I was letting him stay couped up inside another minute.  I wouldn't take 'No' for an answer!  I found him sitting on the stairs playing Mario Kart.  I squatted down to his level.  I mustered up my best "firm, yet loving" voice and said, "Go...play outside...NOW!"

When I looked outside 10 minutes later...

see, that was the joy (parental) of atari when we were young, too many wires, joysticks, proximity to tv....your request to play outside could never have resulted in this during the early 80's!
