Big Kid had $20 to burn at Toys R Us and chose some virtual dog game for the wii (and a Baby Einstein DVD. I totally caved. He owes me $10.)
It just struck me that he is throwing a ball to a virtual dog while Lily (our white German Shepherd) runs around the family room desperately squeaking a toy with anxious hope that someone will play with her.
I pointed out the irony of this to him and he told me he liked his tv dog better.
This is wrong. On so many levels.
I kind of feel like the genie is already out of the bottle on this one, but I hope I've learned a lesson here.
