Can we talk about Minecraft… Or NOT talk about Minecraft for frig sakes! As I have said before I have 4 boys, 3 of Minecraft age. If you don’t know what Minecraft is, first of all be thankful, second of all…its a game where the kids build stuff and defend it and there are potions and animals and…zombies? (head shake/eye roll)
My kids love this game. So at many points in the day one of them is telling me about something pertaining to the game. Here lies the problem. I don’t get it. I don’t understand the game or the lingo or the fascination. I try hard to care for my kids sake and of course to stay in the running for Mom of the year buuuut I just don’t get it.
Part of me thinks it’s a dumb game and it’ll “rott your brain” but after you see their little faces after they’ve built this sweet house that has flower boxes and trap doors and a room for mommy, it’s just so sweet and impressive! They actually google images of their favourite characters (Mario, Spongebob, Sonic) and duplicate them in Minecraft! It’s kind of cool really.
This is a bit of a Ranting post, tell me I am not alone on the Minecraft ranting? Please tell me I’m not the only one staring blankly through their children while they explain for the millionth time what this potion does or why they are shearing their sheep….Please?
