I have to pat myself on the back for this one. The best purchase we have made in the past month was definitely the Wii. It is fun. I highly recommend it. Go get one (if you can - I know it took 2 PA residents and 1 CA resident to track one down on a Sunday night here in Pittsburgh).
Kam - she is a lover of all things video games. For sure our child. Everyday since we bought the thing, she asks, Can we play the Wii? To which the answer is usually yes, but after 30 days of Wii ownership, it gets a tad on the old side to hear the same question everyday.
Just to give you an idea of what its like to watch Kam play the Wii...imagine if you will...Elaine Bennis' dancing from Seinfeld meets Bruce Lee. The girl already has the metabolism of a gnat, and I can guarantee she burns anywhere from 1500 to 2000 calories playing in one half hour alone.
I will take a video sometime and upload it to here.
