Pulling the virtual weeds

My sister’s kids (home and garden backyard sister) have this game called Animal Crossings. It’s one of those life computer games where you have your little town to take care of, go to work, earn money, and become an upstanding member of the community. I was thinking how cool this was and how it was going to teach some good values to the kids. She has been playing it a lot this summer with them and I think she is addicted now.
I spoke with her yesterday and asked her what she was doing and she says she was in her son’s “town” pulling weeds. Apparently its one of the tasks you have to do (or your town becomes full of weeds), but he never does...….so she was doing it for him. She just got to the point where she just couldn’t stand the weeds growing in his town. How fucking funny is that. Is that life imitating art or art imitating life? That is truly something only a loving mom would do.

The guidance that we now give our children, will teach them to keep their "gardens" clean...

Now won't last forever, so use it wisely~c

Moms never get tired of tending to their children's gardens. I need to move to a townhouse.

My daughter and I color together on the computer. Some of the art on my blog she helped me with by choosing the colors. So it is all good.
