How not to play Mario Kart

Bearhug wanted me to try playing Mario Kart today. I've played a couple of times before, and I'm pretty bad every time. Today was no exception. In fact, when I complained, "Hey, this character doesn't turn very well!" Cuddlebug informed me that, "you have to turn the wheel." In my defense, I WAS turning the wheel, but I must not have been doing it right somehow. My character kept falling off of cliffs and crashing into walls and trees. Not to mention hitting almost every banana peel that had been dropped on the track. Sigh.

When I finished and handed the controller back to BH, he said, "I'm proud of you, mama!"

I thanked him, thinking he was impressed that I tried. He continued, "I'm proud of you because you *almost* beated someone's record!" Thanks, BH :) He added, "Then someone will be worser than you!" LOL, I guess for now my title as 'worst at this' remains unchallenged :).

Too funny! I have found the wheel too hard to play with so I use the nunchuk. I'm still not very good.

Thanks for your comment on my post at 5 minutes for special needs. I appreciate the support.

Your title is only safe until he sees Grandma try it!

BH is so thoughtful giving you encouragement tell you he's proud of you. Keep trying as you can only get better. The boys will always be proud of you no matter what.

How funny, my boys always ask me to play the wii with them too, and I am terrible...oh well, my strengths are elsewhere!
