video games

Summer Lily has recently discovered video games... she has been playing games on the computer for quite a while now, probably a year and a half. But it is just now that she is really into video games. We brought my old Sega Genesis upstairs from its place in the basement and she has been loving it. There are only two games -- Sonic the Hedgehog and Echo the Dolphin, and no one in the family likes Echo, but we are rockin' the Sonic :) Summer Lily is so freaking good at video games. It is hilarious to watch her. She just flies through the levels and she has some pretty fancy moves. She sits on the floor, kind of in the middle of the room.. and as she plays.. every time she jumps she moves over a tiny bit to the right. At first I couldn't figure out why I kept finding her all crowded under the computer table, kinda stuck under the shelf and trying to peer out at the TV so she could play. But then I just sat and actually watched her.. and sure enough, with each little jump she moved herself further and further to the right until she had worked herself right under the computer desk. So I would pick her up and put her back in the middle of the room... half a level later and she'd be back under the table. She is a bit better at staying in one place now. I haven't found her crouched under the computer desk for a few days now. :)

Jack stands when he plays...and jumps, and moves all over the place. Cracks me up...

thanks for taking the time to share about Summer Lily and how she kept ending up under that table.
I may still be laughing about this tomorrow!
