Darkness in my Soul

I have seen the Abyss, and it is Pixie Hollow.  My wife told me last night that she and my 3 year old daughter, Claire, were playing together as much as my 6 month old permitted them to.  Claire does not yet have the capabilities to control a mouse (she just likes the scroll-button, scroll buttons, oh yeah, like that heart attack… what), but I have been teaching her to move with WASD and jump off talens in Lord of the Rings Online.  I digress.  Last night I farmed mats for Claire while she slept playing a faerie she randomly named Coconut Rainbowmist.  I am not sure whether this was a triumphant stepstone towards creating a gamer family or something else.  I got points with the wife for actually gaming, which is an activity where I usually cash them in.  Still there is a foreboding presence in my soul that I cannot shake.  Maybe I hit upon some patterned node too complex for my mortal mind to comprehend.  I can’t wait to return to my own niche tonight.

all laid aside disguise but you

  1. I have a 5 year old niece that will die when she sees that game.

    It feels odd to say but…thanks for the link.

  2. My three year old daughter loves Wizard 101. My one year old boy loves Audiosurf. MMOs can wait for that one.
