The Advantage of Having a Son


Let me preface this by saying how much I love my daughter.  She's the best.  I'm so blessed.

With that out the way, I'm glad I had a boy first.  My son recently turned seven and gifts he now receives are actually gifts for me.  I'm directly benefiting from having another big boy in the house.

His friends chipped in to get him Mario Kart for our Wii, complete with an extra steering wheel for the wiimote.  James and I have battled it out several times and I'm having a blast.

Then, when I thought my life couldn't get any better, my brother Ryan surprised him with NHL 2K9.  James is happy and I'm ecstatic.  Ryan might as well have bought NHL 2K9 for me.

Back in the 16-bit Super Nintendo days, my favourite games were the NHL games from EA Sports.  I can't wait to dive into NHL 2K9 for the Wii.  Thanks, Ry!
