all we want for christmas is three game cubes
So why did we buy three Game Cubes? There's an explanation, really.
One is from Justin to me. That was the only thing on my Christmas list and that's what I'm getting.
So each year the kids get one big present and then a bunch of smaller ones. They both wanted a Game Cube this year. Well, DJ wanted an amp, but the one he picked out was $400, so no dice.
Well, there was no way in hell I was sharing my Game Cube with them. Hands off mommy's toys, kids. They don't touch the Dreamcast, they don't touch the action figures and now the Game Cube would be off limits.
Easy enough fix. Get them a Game Cube as well. Then I had this nightmare of the two of them fighting every single day over the game. They already spend half the day trying to find new ways to annoy each other. The last thing I needed was another thing for them to fight over. Hence, the three Game Cubes.
We all have our own and if we want to play a game together, we have three controllers. Sure, we'll all have the same Zelda pack, but that's ok. We'll probably trade one in at EB World and put it towards Metroid Prime or Monkey Ball.
So now we have every gaming system save for the X-Box, which we will probably never purchase.
I should probably buy a set of encyclopedias for them just to make myself feel less guilty for indulging their passion for gaming.
But, hey. Like mother, like kids. It's in the blood.
