First Gaming Console


They happen in the theater, and sometimes they happen in real life.

Like when Little Guy hits a growth spurt and decides that a full meal every two hours between 10 pm and 6 am for a week straight is necessary to life.

There's not enough coffee in life for me to function well after that, let alone blog.

In the meantime, Mr. Dude has made a declaration:

"Look, Stephanie! Little Guy's first console will be a Nintendo Gameboy. I'm going to start showing him how to use it!" 

Aren't they just the cutest? 

Okay, okay, I'll confess my bias. I only think they're cute because they're mine. But you have to admit that it's cute to watch a munchkin and his daddy hanging out together.

Side note: Curious as to how Mr. Dude acquired a Nintendo Gameboy?

A friend of ours decided to have a "Hipster"-themed birthday party and posted this as the cover photo for the event: 

Source unknown. My apologies to wherever he downloaded this from! 

Mr. Dude saw the guy on the right and immediately yelled out, "That's awesome!" 

A search on craigslist and ebay ensued for a Nintendo Gameboy in good, working condition. 

A trip across town and $20 later, and he had a new toy. 

A trip to Goodwill and $5 later, and he had the appropriate gold chain. 

A pair of shorts, a button up shirt, an origami paper bowtie and white socks helped him look like the hipster version of a guy from Weird Al's "White and Nerdy". 

Ergo, more proof that my husband is most definitely a nerd. And a sucker for nostalgia. 

Was there ever really any doubt, though?
