ya know, i think 5 days off for liam is too much. he's grounded from video games because of his grades. he lost tv for 2 days because he didn't bring any homework home, even though he knew he'd have a 4 day weekend (the 5th day is because the kids ended up with no school because it's SEVEN FREAKING BELOW ZERO!)
so, i'm on a quest to get off my ever-spreading ass. i bought sean dance dance revolution for his birthday last year, and the kids enjoy playing it. i had him bring it out, and he and i played (and i broke a sweat, yippee!) liam got to watch, mostly because itwas in the living room, and i'm trying toget him to come downstairs more. so, when sean had had enough, and i was sweating heavily, we quit playing. sean went back into the spare bedroom to play a different game. liam asked if he could watch sean play, and i told him no. he got mad. he said it didn't make sense to not let him watch sean in the spare bedroom. he said "i never get to spend any time with my brother (sean just earned his games back yesterday)." then, finally "IT'S NOT FAIR!"
