With Thunderer feeling better this time around we were able to go as a family to cheer on Newbie and Superman as they learned more swimming tips and tricks. And maybe to take up as many chairs as possible.
The teens have basically graduated from this program so they were along more for the chores we were off to after the lessons.
Newbie’s confidence has greatly improved through the course of the lessons and is now willing to fully put her face in the water.
Meanwhile, I enjoyed catching Superman in flight.
Like at the mall, one good way to contain a toddler is to put her up on somebody’s shoulders.
For my birthday last year I was lucky enough to get a new laptop for gaming.
It’s what I use when playing Overwatch, No Man’s Sky, etc. The PC only games.
When playing WoW I’m usually on the mac just because I like my huge screen for that.
What that means though is that Superman can sit next to me at my desk and be a happy boy questing and gaming with me.
What I appreciate is that while I’m playing at his left, Redflare is playing at his right.
He’s growing up in a household where everybody games. It’s not a “boy” thing. Some games others just may not like, and that’s fine. You either play them solo or play something that everybody who wants to game at that moment likes.
That is sometimes hard to balance, sure. This would be why he’s thankful I let him use the laptop.
I look at this picture and think that if the Internet is the way it is right now in 9+ years when Thunderer here enters social media, if her interests still align with gaming we’ve got the image cred of her playing games since she was literally in diapers.
