Gaming Dad


Sharpen the pen!

Sharpen the pen!

This blog is a dusty derelict, but it can be resurrected,

My Twitter timeline is diminishing on frequencies of tweets,

Gaming time has been reduced to the late night hours,

Limited to when the family is asleep and with headphones on,

The gaming dad is a rare combination,

almost an oxymoron,

Games can take hours,

so can TV,

I just have to choose wisely,

I spend my free time gaming.

 

 

There is a little known fact that when you become a parent, your life changes forever. It’s probably the biggest change that I have ever had to experience, however it’s also the most rewarding. Having one child was fairly routine and my wife and I can rely on each others support, but having two kids now meant that both of you will be occupied with one child each.  Gone are the days where you can say, “You go ahead and take a nap, I’ll take care of the baby.”

When you have two children, now it’s “Don’t take long, I don’t know how long I can last with two babies.” However, now my son is almost two-years old and things are getting easier as far as being capable to watch both my three-year old daughter and two-year old son at the same time.

Hence, why the blogging has recommenced.

Initially, gaming as a dad for me meant handheld gaming. I have become one with my 3DS. I played a lot of Fire Emblem then I moved onto Animal Crossings:New Leaf to manage my town on a daily basis. I would shut the door of my office and I’d pull some weeds, sell some apples and then make nice with the townsfolk.

We’ll that is just a teaser of the things to hear about. until then…

Carpe Diem
