Thanks to Aunt Carrie having one and the kids falling madly in love with it while visiting her last weekend, they decided that they simply must have Wii fit of their own. So, the 5 oldest joined financial forces to purchase their very own Wii fit.

I was like, Oh. Well, it’s your money, I guess.

Ryan said, much to my childrens’ delight, I’ll kick in some money, too!
Why was I not surprised?

So, they get this thing. It’s a board you stand on.
Gabe(10) said, “Watch Mom! Watch what I’m doing!”

Then he proceeded to jog in place. So I watched.
I waited for something more to happen. Something cool. Something worthy of my time.
Like a hurdle. Or a banana peel. Or something. Anything.

But no. The game was simply running.

You paid money for this? On purpose?

Then Kait said, That’s not all it is, Mom. There are better ones than just running. Let me show you the dance one.

And show me she did.
Remember that first middle school dance where nobody was really comfortable actually dancing so everybody just did the side to side step and clapped their hands to the beat of Tiffany’s I think we’re alone now cover?

Yeah, that. It was just like that but without the totally appropriate song lyrics. Took me back to 1987.

Apparently there is more to this Wii fit game thing, but by this time I wasn’t sure I could handle any more excitement. I was nauseous.

Still not gettin’ it?
Take a look at this Wii fit commercial and you’ll see how fun leaning from side to side in front of the TV can be too.
Then you’ll just have to have one yourself.
