Wii Dilemma - by Brad

This week, we purchased a Wii for our family Christmas present. We decided to get it early because they aren't always easy to find, and it sounds like there might be a shortage as we get closer to Christmas.

Besides their stockings, this is the only Christmas present the boys will get from us (Spencer might feel ripped off if he knew better).


Here is my dilemma...

It seems like a waste to have a boxed up Wii in our possession for over a month without playing it.

But we can't give it to the boys early or they might be disappointed with the lack of gifts at Christmas.

However, this is a FAMILY present... meaning for Lindsey and me also. We already know what our present is, so it won't ruin Christmas for us if the two of us were to play it now.

Would it be wrong for Lindsey and I to secretly play our new Wii after the boys go to bed... and then box it up before Christmas so it's still a surprise for the boys?

I say open it and play it, then invite me over to play with you... secretly of course.

Consider the old saying, "When in doubt, don't."

Hmmm, probalby should wait and then it will be that much more exciting when you get to play with it.

So a little late on the help-but I want you to know that I'd be tempted to open it too. Way to stick it out...plus that gives me more time to brush up my skills so I can get back to sparkle ball status before we see you again. I wouldn't want you guys to keep getting better or anything.
