The Nintendo Shuffle

by MARIA on October 14, 2009

My son loves his Nintendo DS – his uncle bought it for him last year. He would play it all day if I allowed it, which I DO NOT (we’ve had to restrict it to weekends only, and only for short periods of time). The funny thing is when he does play, he is continuously moving around, trying to “get comfortable”. Yesterday, I decided to document it. These pictures are in order, and taken within the 30 minutes he was allowed to play.

Oh that’s hysterical! It’s tough work playing video games – have to get into just the right comfort-position….nice job capturing that :)

Too funny! I especially love the one of him hanging over the arm of the chair! Classic.

That’s funny! I guess his game performance depends on finding exactly the right, most comfy position! Haha.

Too funny! But at least he’s moving around, I guess!

My nephew has that… it seemed to get worse the older he is getting.. 12 now and I think he could play that thing with a herd of elephants in the living room.. He could stand on his head while doing it… Amazing!!!! Fun to be a kid!

It’s not just a little boy phenomenon….I’ve witnessed my husband doing the exact same thing haha

12 Loukia October 14, 2009 at 3:28 pm

Oh my God…. hahahaha! I love it… toooo funny! I’m glad you caught this on your camera… he’s such a good looking boy, Maria, you know? What games does he play? I wonder if my 4 year old is too young? His dad has like 3 DS’s… a wii… a PS3… an XBox, you name it, we have it… but he hasn’t really shown any intest in video games yet…

That is hysterical! My dd insists on walking around while she is on the DS that she just got for her birthday. I keep telling her she’s gonna walk into the wall but she keeps on. I do put my foot down though when it comes to the stairs :) lol


17 Samantha @ Mama Notes October 14, 2009 at 5:41 pm

Oh my gosh, I love all these pictures! How cute- he looks occupied and content! :)


18 Nap Warden October 14, 2009 at 5:42 pm

That’s quite a workout!


19 Avasmommy October 14, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Looks like me when I’m trying to read a book! LOL


20 Kim @ Beautiful Wreck October 14, 2009 at 5:43 pm

LMBO… these pics remind me of my two boys when they play. Great WW post!


21 Chic Mama October 14, 2009 at 5:46 pm

Oh mine do that too. It’s amazing the positions they get into isn’t it. Oh to be so bendy still. ;0)


22 Liz October 14, 2009 at 5:47 pm


What a cute post!


23 Adriane October 14, 2009 at 5:50 pm

That’s hilarious! How funny — he just can’t seem to get in the right position for the important game huh? Cute photos.


24 Nenette October 14, 2009 at 5:56 pm

LOL my kids are just the opposite! Playing on their DS is the one of the only times they actually stay still. :)


25 Jessica - This is Worthwhile October 14, 2009 at 5:57 pm

I say that’s a good thing!! It’s obvious that sitting still ISN’T comfortable! I love it!

That is so funny….a picture does definitely speak a thousand words!


28 That Girl October 15, 2009 at 5:02 am

Excellent! It must be very important to get in the right position whilst playing DS! Small Child has been on about having one of these for some time now (the nagging started when she was 3!) but Im holding off a while longer! I think I could do with the brain training game though! I just read about your son’s bullying thing at school and it made me so sad. I hope it all gets sorted as I can only imagine how I’ll feel when my girl comes and says this to me. You hit the nail on the head when you said that these are not the things you think of when you decide to have a baby – so hard. Love to you and yours from us in the UK x


29 Stesha October 15, 2009 at 4:28 pm

So cute! I would have to say the first photo is my favorite:)

Hugs and Mocha,


30 blueviolet October 15, 2009 at 4:41 pm

That is so funny! I expected a few positions but not that many. LOL


31 Elaine October 15, 2009 at 5:19 pm

That is hilarious! They do love their games, don’t they?


32 Shannon @ Anchormommy October 16, 2009 at 11:00 am

So funny! I’ve never seen anything like it!
