Last night I think I achieved one of my my greatest gaming feats ever.
Mario Kart is the hands down favorite for my 5yo. Even with steering assist though, it is difficult for her. She usually finishes about 7th or 8th, but some super aggressive opponents and she is last. She loves the game, but gets frustrated with it. And as we are just playing 50cc, I win every race.
So the other day I decided if winning was not a challenge for me, can I hold back and run blocker and see if I could get her a win. And it worked eventually. The other night I was able to get her a first place finish. It's still a challenge as she can still manage to run into walls and falls behind easily. If she falls behind like 5th place, you can't usually get her back up.
Last night....I finally was able to run blocker for the whole Mushroom Cup, getting her her first 4 1st finishes and her first cup trophy! She was so excited and was jumping up and down. And it really was a fun challenge for me.
