Video Games

I cannot stop laughing! Teaching Darcey how to play Super Mario World on the Wii is hilarious!

“Okay Darcey you have to use 2 to jump over the creatures in the level and find coins and bonuses throughout the level”

“Ok mummy, I get it”

First level first attempt – watched the mushroom walk into Mario. OH MY GOD!! 😂

Second attempt – jumped over mushroom (Yey!) walked straight into the next one (damn!)

Third, fourth, fifth, sixth and I’ve lost count how many more times – just dying after around six seconds of playing. How long before I actually lose my mind and turn it off?! 😵🤦🏽‍♀️

But to be fair. She is only five “and a half” and it’s only the first proper try at a level game.

How on earth do you teach a child to play video games?! (Before you get frustrated with them) When I was younger I first had a PS1 and then a Super Nintendo many years later and honestly don’t remember not knowing how to play.

She’s become a pro at Mario Kart though.

Like I always say to her. Practice makes perfect, but I think I’m going to have to make myself busy and not watch her “play”. It’s too much! 😳

Horrendous….🤬

So in the last few weeks Marnie has become the spawn of something terrifying! We went out birthday present shopping for a friend of Darcey’s this afternoon and Marnie has decided that seat belts are for wimps. Like seriously… what is her issue with a seat belt?! I don’t understand it. Darcey was never the kind of child to try and get out of her buggy, car seat, high chair. None of that. So this is all new to me. How do you stop a child trying to escape a belt that’s there to save their lives?! Someone please give me some advice. I knew this was a thing, but it’s terrifying that she could escape whilst I’m driving!

Apart from the dramatic change in Marnie, I feel things are in the up with us as a family. I have my new Cricut machine and I’m designing stuff to start selling. At the moment I’ve got a lot of cake toppers and t shirt slogans and stuff ready to print. Just need the t shirts to print them on. I’m in the hope that I can get hold of a sewing machine so I can get creating with fabric too. I’m excited for this part of my life to get going.

Darcey isn’t six yet, but thought it was a good opportunity to practice a cake topper. First attempt is pretty good, I think. 🤔

I have to apologise for not being active the past few weeks. Please don’t hold that against me, it’s just been a bit busy. What with Marnie turning into a brat again (Not sure she stopped to be honest). And it’s almost the end of the school year for Darcey. So I’ll be back with things we’ve made for the teachers to say ‘Thank you’.
