If you give a Dad a DS...

If you give a Dad a Nintendo DS...

He’s going to want to play some games. He might just want to play your favorite Pokemon game.

Once he gets started, he’s going to want to unlock new levels and find new Pokemon.

Then he might decide to hook it up to the wi-fi so he can chat with other Pokemon trainers online.

Next, he'll ask to borrow your Pokemon handbook so he can improve his chances of successful Pokemon battles.

When you ask for your game back, he’ll tell you, "just a few more minutes, I’m going to beat this level for you."

You might have to find something else to do for a while.

For a long while.

Several hours later, when you ask for your game back again, he’ll tell you again that he’s almost done.

Your mom will have to remind him that it’s not his game and make him give it back to you.

Later, you'll have to come back downstairs because you realize he still has your Pokemon handbook. He's busy studying up on the different types of Pokemon.

The next day, you’ll find him playing your game again. He might get worried when he thinks you released one of his prized Pokemon. He’ll be relieved when you show him the Pokemon is still there, it just evolved into a new form.

Your mom will roll her eyes at your dad’s barely concealed panic over what he thought was a lost Pokemon, but no one will notice.

He’s going to tell you he’s working on finding you some more new Pokemon. And he’ll tell you he’s "almost done."


You’re going to have to start hiding your Nintendo DS :).

I can totally relate to the pokemon-mania... I finally had to rid myself of my gameboy entirely to end that addiction... lol... It went to a good home...

My ex (Coltan and Cody's father) is the same way with Playstation, Nitendo, and X-box. So my boys got smart and started buying only games that take two players. HaHa

And this is why we've banned gaming systems from our home!
