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! 😳
