gameboy boy.

Max has had this old Gameboy for awhile now. The other day while playing Tetris he asked, "Is this a toy from the olden days?" I chuckled and said, "Yes. It is from the olden days." Then he says, "It was made in 1989." (I guess there was a manufacture date on it?...) And I chuckled again and said, "Yep. Waayyy back when I was a junior in high school and daddy graduated from high school."
Couple this with the fact that I'll be forty in less than two months, and I feel old, friends.

And while he has told me he doesn't like me to post photos on the blog of him sucking his thumb, well, I'm going to anyway. 'Cause I'm mom and I can do that. ;)

Happy weekending, friends!

Love these black and whites, A.
It's funny how those old school toys are almost just as loved as the snazzy fancy ones of today.

If we really wanna talk about things that date us...I still remember getting our first Pong game and playing it on the little black and white tv. Oy!

I loved my gameboy!
I'm about to buy a regular Nintendo for Shaun because he loves Super Mario 3. :) And so do I. :)

my parents never allowed this when i grew up. of course they got everything else and more for the two youngest (spoiled). i'm all for TETRIS! love the music, too.

also had a big chuckle of him asking you not to post photos of him sucking his thumb. ;)
