Embarrassing confession time! My husband and I are parents who like to stay busy with our daughter. We do trips to hockey games, Broadway plays, museums ... We're always looking for something to DO with our kid. And it's only just dawning on us that we've been missing out big time by ignoring all the good old sources of family entertainment that just about every family in the '80s indulged in.
Hold on, let me back up. We were watching Wreck-It Ralph with our daughter (disclaimer, I got a free copy of the DVD on a Disney trip for Oz) and realized that half the video game references were going straight over her head. Some were just really old and meant to give us adults something to chuckle over. But just as many required something we had never done as a family: a trip to the arcade.
It made us a little sad, but it was also one of those light bulb moments for us.
