    Namine knows she’s named after a video game character, but tonight she played the game for the first time.

    Preconceptions and limitations

    I’d like to think that I’ve matured enough to move past having preconceptions about what my daughter can do. I was wrong.

  • Ragequit


    I witnessed Namine’s very first ragequit while playing on the Wii yesterday.

    Cleaning and karting

    I’ve written before on how Namine likes to play video games with me, but I think this is the first time that she’s written about it.

    Since we have Wii Fit board, Namine’s therapist recommended we try her out on some of its balance games. There were mixed results.

    Music lovers

    I am the odd man out in my family. They’re nearly all musicians — my mom and dad have education in music, my sister too, and my brother at least has a good singing voice — but I just love music. And as far as Namine’s upbringing goes, I think that’s enough.

    My Far Cry 4 wish list

    Playing on the Wii

    There’s no better way to relax on a stormy day than to play games. We fired up the Wii, and introduced Namine to Wii Sports and Mario Kart.

  • All work and no play

    All work and no play

    All three of us — Jessica, Namine, and myself — spent the better part of the day cleaning. Namine cleaned her room, inasmuch as a five year old has the motivation to clean anything, and Jessica and I cleaned ours.
