If you haven’t heard of the highly popular game Candy Crush, I don’t know which planet you’ve been living on. With so many Facebook requests asking me to give life, I finally decided to check out the game and downloaded the app two weeks ago.
But over the weekend, I made a hard decision to delete the game that I love off my hand phone (I’m already at level 33!). I don’t know about you but that game is ADDICTIVE. And what’s worse is that hubby shared a way to ‘cheat’ which means I don’t have to wait for time to pass before I get another five lives to continue the game. Now you know why I say it’s addictive.
Last Sunday, Alexis and I were both glued to our hand phones after breakfast, you guessed it, playing Candy Crush again….
Upon seeing that sight, Sophie got exasperated and said, “Mummy playing Candy Crush. Daddy also playing Candy Crush. So I play the iPad“. Not exactly the kind of example we should be setting for our three year whom we’re teaching about limiting her “screen-time”. So I immediately got off my hand phone and brought her to the playground to get a bit of sun and good-old-fashioned fun.
But what she said really hit hard. When I got back, I turned to Alexis and asked, “Don’t you think we’re wasting too much time on that game? I’m only on level 33, but so what if I won? That’s a lot of time wasted, so I’ve decided to call it quits“.
And I did. So sorry if your requests to give you life doesn’t get a reply.
That decision may not have given me a 25th hour of the day but I know that my time is put to better use especially for a mom who has to juggle both work and family.
