Via, of all places, The Frisky, if you needed a stark reminder not only that the Nintendo generation has firmly transitioned into adulthood, but that the bar for truly epic parenting is HIGH, look no further than this amazing photo album. It records, for all posterity, the process by which a couple of very awesome parents spent 2009 decorating their baby’s room in full-tilt Yoshi’s Island regalia. The photo above is sufficiently wonderful, but in addition to essentially nailing the look and feel of the game, Dad also contributed some delightful, original comic art to hang on the newly-amazing walls:
Pretty impressive stuff, enough even to make me reconsider my current childlessness. No point denying I kind of wish they were my parents – they’d ensure I get the power ups and eggs I need to grow up healthy and strong enough to protect the kingdom from the threat of authoritarian turtles. You can see more of the astounding work put into the Mario babyroom, plus tons of heartwarming babyphotos, over at the official photostream. (All photos are © MeaDsblog.)
