Mystery diagnosis

For the last couple of nights Winnie has been experiencing shoulder pain.

The first night I gave it a look -- nothing apparent. I go down the mom to child mystery injury checklist; did you hit it, twist it, fall, wrestle with your brother, fight with your sister, handstands, cartwheel, chase the dog?


Hmm. Well, put this warm rice sock on it and go to bed and it will feel better in the morning.

Next night, same deal, only this time I manipulate a bit and when she winced, I knew. From the location of where I was touching -- Houston, Wii have identified the problem.

Friends, have you played it?

Then you know there is a palates move of some kind involved in working the controls -- there's definitely a break in period which involves some searing shoulder pain.

It's okay, it's going to take some bowling and a lot of tennis, but we'll get her through this.

The bowling and tennis is video form, just in case I wasn't clear.

It's a riot (although Frankie is very tall and our ceilings are low -- so we do have that one or two dents there now, but they're not bad and Frankie is okay, so it's good.)

Wii has become a verb in our family. My brother has one and he and his wife invite us over to Wii.

My son is absolutely green with envy over any kid who gets to Wii on a regular basis. I'm 100% certain we'd (I mean Wii'd) have to deal with a lot of tennis/Wii elbow if we had one too!
