So I made a deal with Santa and this is what he's bringing 2 very special little boys this Christmas
An xbox 360 and Kinect
which is the gaming console that uses infared cameras to track your body movements so the user is the controller. We played on a friends and Orion had a blast dancing, bowling, rafting...etc
Believe me I know this is a really lavish gift for a 5 year old but really it's more of a family gift. Plus this will give the boys a way to burn off energy when it's too yuckie outside to go play.
But there's a catch...
Santa is also including tokens that can only be earned by doing chores, good behavior, and helping out around the house. Each token will be good for either 5 or 10 minutes of game play so the boys may redeem however many tokens they have and play for that amount of time.
We have had this chore chart for some time and I have always had a difficult time coming up with worthwhile rewards for the boys
So I think I'll use this to keep track of tokens earned for each week.
I can't wait for Christmas morning, I think I'm just as excited to play this as the boys will be, only 9 days left!
Thank you Santa, you're too good to us!
Peace let mommy have a turn
