Computer Time Competition

As many of you have probably noticed I haven't been on the computer nearly as much lately. I've been busy with my over indulgence with swaps, but now that it's colder outside I'm in Computer Time Competition. The kids are in the house more and between a 17 year old being on MySpace and IMing her friends and my 8 & 9 year old with computer games I have to wait in line to use the computer. Well, last night the competition increased.

Ezie was playing a Reader rabbit game and Jace wanted to sit on his lap. Ezie got the Toddler Reader Rabbit game out and put it in for Jace. That was it. The fascination was on!! Jace loved playing the different games and was on for almost a half an hour. Then after the other kids went to bed last night he wanted to play more games. I set the game up for him and he was able to play a game and then go to the main menu and switch games all by himself. I was so amazed and impressed.........but at the same time realized that I had one more person to compete with, a 2 1/2 year old. Oh well, he had a blast!!

If you haven't heard about Reader Rabbit games they are really great computer games. I bought several of them a few years ago because I found them at The Christmas Tree Shoppe for $1.00 a piece. Yes, $1.00 a game. I bought everyone of them I could find in the bin. I have to say that was one of my better finds. Most of the games keep track of your child's progress and reward them at the end of each game. They are really educational and fun!
