I started my son on the Lego games at age 5 with the Wii and to this date we still play all the games and look forward to when a new one comes out. When I'm not playing borderlands 2 I'll play a lego game. Do you have any of the games already?

Yeah, my son would not fall for that. He knows too much about how the X-Box works. He even has a X-Box live account.

Not at this point. I'll probably get back into that when he's a bit older.

Sam has a couple of tablet games that are age appropriate that he really likes. In the meantime, I've been sticking to phone games. The only time I get to play "real" games is in the evening, and I've been too tired to do so for the last month.

Totally understand, and I do not have a new-born to keep me busy. I swear when kids start getting into sports and after school activities it wears on you that laying in bed reading is about the most strenuous activity I can go for. Oh, plus my son, 2nd grade, has at most an hour and a half of homework a day.

The evenings can be pretty rough. I actually got to play guitar for the first time in two weeks last night, which may be the longest I've gone without playing in nearly 20 years.

My typical day is as follows:
-Wake up at 7:00AM. Make coffee and do dishes. Get Sam up, dress him, and feed him. Drink coffee, shower, dress, play with kids (who demand my attention, even if there are other things to do).
-8:30-8:45, catch carpool.
-9:00-9:30, arrive at work.
-9:30-5:30, work.
-5:30-6:15, carpool home.
-6:15-8:00, play with Sam, feed him, do chores around the house (clean, groceries, cook, etc.).
-8:00, put Sam to bed. He may go to sleep right away, but usually takes about 30 minutes to calm down. It sometimes take until 9:00pm to get him down.
-8:00-9:00, cook dinner for Jess and I, do additional chores around the house.
-9:00-10:00, eat dinner, have some downtime.
-10:00-10:30, get ready for bed, hit the sack anywhere between 10:30 and 11:30, depending on what needs to be done around the house and how fussy Adam is.

Adam wakes up multiple times at night for feedings, which is harder on my wife than me, but keeps me from getting a full night's sleep. With spring here, about half of my weekend is spent doing yardwork, and the other half is devoted to playing with the kids and doing other chores. Finding free time is not easy.

Well, to be fair, my son is in an advanced elementary class that covers both 2nd and 3rd grade lessons in the 2nd grade. I realized after your post I should not have said anything about homework since I really do not like to come off as bragging by having to explain it.

Note, he gets it all from his mom, as did our daughter who tested into advance 1st grade for next year. (Yes, they test KG kids for advance placement, it was so odd to go to my daughter after school "how was testing? oh sorry berenstain bears are on, I'll ask later.")

Damn. Wow, yeah my day ends around 8:30 - 9:00 when I help put the kids down to bed but if you are running solo to a degree while you wife cares for Adam I can see how it can chew up a lot of your time.

I was in the advanced learning program in elementary school. I hated it though so I left. I missed having class with my friends.

Natural born slacker :-D

The WORST thing just happened. I was taking the dog out and I got on the elevator with this fine ass girl and Phife was all trying to play with her and shit and I realized I was looking mad bummy with a hole and cooking stains on my t-shirt. I had to tell Phife that he chooses to run game for me at the most inopportune moments. Now he is angry with me and will not come out from under the bed.

But it is not the clothes but the personality. You could have done something to distract her from your holes and stains.

I live in a condo near the water. Everyone here is as stuffy as I make them out to be.

Clothes matter. I get looks from people when I roll into the building's gym in a beat up T and my ball shorts.

Besides, I smelled like ground turkey. No one runs game on a chick smelling like ground turkey. :P
