Keeping Up With The Boys

I have been feeling left out at home lately. Hubby and the kiddo talk in a language only the two of them understand. Sometimes they include me in their conversation but I just cannot keep up.

Last week, EJ borrowed my phone to text his Dad. I thought he was going to tell about the music stand for sale we saw on the music store on the way home from school. But this is what transpired on their text exchange.


I have no idea what they are talking about! Okay, well, I guess they are talking about the game Red Alert. I just don't have any idea what the game is all about.

Hubby and EJ tried to make me understand the game. EJ even tried to teach me but my limited mind cannot process the game so I stopped trying to understand.

Hubby said it's RPG (Role Playing Game). Whatever that means! LOL! EJ said the reason I don't understand is because I am not a "gamer" like him and his daddy. Thank you very much, babe. You just made me feel officially left out. Hahaha!

I also play games. I was even partly addicted to Farmville in Facebook before. But that was a long time ago. Now I mostly play spider solitaire on my phone and laptop. LOL!

I realized two things: EJ is growing up fast. He doesn't play the usual baby games that he used to play before. Second, boys will be boys. It's not a bad thing. It's actually nice that hubby and EJ enjoy doing something together.

If I don't learn to play their game, I might become just a ghost to them. Uh-oh, I better keep up.
