Wii all are dreamers...

I love to dream… I always have. My father still tells me that I have a very thin grasp to this world because I am always in the clouds.

I like to window shop and dream about how an outfit would look on me, or where I’d go in it. I look at kids clothes and imagine how my child would look in it, heck; I look at recipes and wonder how my family would react if I put it in front of them.

So when the Wii and Wii Fit giveaway came up on The Smart Mama, I HAD to join it. Then I spent the few weeks daydreaming with my kids. What we would do, what games we would play, and of course, who would beat who. I love dreaming about things with my little ones. Its fun, we don’t have a lot of money, with my single life, and the six kids, things can get tight.

My 35th birthday came and went. I had a wonderful time with my family and friends, though, still no Wii. (I’ve only been asking for this since my LAST b-day), then… it happened.

Yep… it’s mine… ALL mine! I wanted to cry, I started shaking, I ran around the office like I’d won 1mil$. I had.

See… this isn’t just for me.

I get to go home, and show my children the e-mail. (I’ll just call them into the room so they can read it, and let it sink in)
I get to watch them jump up and down, and scream, and yell. I get to see their smiling faces and hear them talk to one another about what they want to play and how they are going to “share”.

This makes our summer the best summer ever!
Thank you so much to The Smart Mama for this! I’m not sure you will ever know how much this will mean to them and me!

Wow! Congratulations!! What a cool prize. My kids probably wouldn't care if I won one of those (they're too young), but my husband would be thrilled.
