Note to mothers: loosen up. Kinect helps you connect with your kids. Accept this.

I encourage you to partake.

Video games are fun. They are part of American pop culture. And they are a big part of my tween’s social life. (I love to say tween…because it sounds really stupid.)

But…  I admit, I am not good at shooters: I have terrible aim. But I do know what’s hip to buy: Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 3. I am not a fan of role playing games (that’s RPG to you): I already play too many roles in my life. And I don’t like driving games: I do enough shuttling. Oh and I suck at staying on the road.

But here’s what I love love love on Xbox 360, Kinect games:

  • Dance Central
  • Dance Central 2–you can introduce your children to C & C Music Factory’s Everybody Dance Now, Digital Underground’s Humpty Dance, and Britney Spears’s Hit Me Baby One More Time. Who doesn’t want to be one of Brit Brit’s back-up dancers? Pick me, Brit!
  • Michael Jackson Experience–you can be IN the Thriller video as a zombie. How cool is that?
  • Just Dance 3
  • Kinect Sports–we have awesome bowling tournaments, right in our living room.
  • Kinect Sports Season 2–the other night my tween and I raced down a mountain. And my glutes were sore for days. Oh, and tennis? Brought me back to my high school days.
  • Grease Dance–who doesn’t love to dance like Olivia Newton John?

Any chance to boogie and show off my new moves…and to have fun with my kids…is time well spent.

And who really cares if you dance like Elaine from Seinfeld. I said you. Not me. I know how to crunk.

Just remember these two must-haves to play: attitude and your trusty sports bra.
