Eli would play MarioKart 24/7 if we let him. I thought that we’d have until he was a teenager to deal with this, but the video game obsession has struck young in our son.

We had friends visiting from out-of-town last week and Eli begged every one of them to play MarioKart with him. He’s really good! He was able to beat a number of our friends. It was so funny to see him go get the controller, turn on the game and then walk up to someone and hand them a steering wheel. Our friends had never agreed to play and he sometimes didn’t even ask; they were required to if they were sitting in the living room. Haha!

Thanks for humoring him, guys! You’ve made a best friend for life!
