How motherhood is ruining my gaming.

I love my kids, I really do. They are adorable and so much fun to play with. But there are two of them and they are a lot of work. I don't get much time to play my games because of them. So here I am with a DS Lite nearby and I can't pick it up. Which sucks because I've been stuck on (meaning I haven't had the time to kill) the last boss for Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. It takes a lot of uninterrupted concentration and I can't give it that.

And then there is the other dilemma, which game do I play? I started playing Fable again awhile back in preparation for Fable 2 this year but, then I got Kyle Rock Band, so we've been busy touring the world. Which, by the way, is hard to do when you barely know the songs. But I'm learning so we'll keep on a-rocking. I just need to keep more beer in the house to ease my embarassment at slurring the words, because at least then I could blame the alcohol.

Then there is the times when Cadence (our 3 year-old, gotta start 'em young these days) wants to get in on the action so we bust out the Wii-Sports or Mario Party. Which inevitably results in her getting bored and walking away while Kyle and I play for awhile and then ask each other why are we playing this instead of the Halo 3 that we haven't touched in ages?

Andrew (who is 9 months-old) is completely useless when it comes to anything related to gaming. Try fighting off pirate ships or salvaging treasure from the bottom of the ocean with him beating on your little screen. Impossible. Although his enthusiaism in yelling at the different characters is promising.

So while I love my kids, I wish I had a little more time for other things as well. I wouldn't trade them for gaming, or anything else I enjoying doing without them, but maybe they could grow a little faster so they can play too.
