Wow! Look at me! Two days in a row!!
My kids got Tamagotchis for Christmas. They are these cute little digital pets that you feed, play with, and clean up their poops. Of course, knowing cheap me, I got the old versions for $2.99 at Beall's Outlet. But they're still awesome!
Anyway, if you don't take care of them, THEY DIE!!!! And my kids kept getting off the bus and coming home to find little angels with wings floating on the screens. So what have I been doing for the past few weeks? Rushing around like a ding dong checking on these things every hour or so to see if they need to be fed, etc. And yes, it is kind of fun. But just yesterday I forgot about them, and the next thing I knew Tommy Tamagotchi was pushing up daisies. And I had really become attached to the little sucker. Emma called him her little Jewish chicken because he looked like a chicken and he had--I swear to you--a yarmulke on his head. Personally, I am very proud of the fact my Mormon nine year old knew what a yarmulke was, but that's another tangent. I was so bummed when he was floating around the screen.
So just today I found out from a friend THEY HAVE A PAUSE BUTTON!!! How have I gone A MONTH keeping these stinkin' digital pets practically on my person all the time and not known that??? So now they are safely on pause and I will have to think of another reason to interrupt my chores.
