I’m kicking myself for not thinking of this one earlier, but baby + video games might be a problem. This morning, I was speaking to a friend of mine with a 15-month old son, and asked how much gaming he has gotten in since the birth. “Um… I played Mario Galaxy for about fifteen minutes once.”
Somewhere in the caverns of my mind, I was aware that the PlayStation and Wii would gather dust for some time, but until the little one is ready to pick up a controller themselves (maybe three years,minimum), the games will languish and I will fall behind.
It's well-worth the sacrifice, but ..... video games! So this is a call to other GeekDads out there— have you found a way to strike a balance? Any advice?
