If you have been following along you know we are on day five of no tv between the hours of 9 and 5.
I have noticed that the hours of 2-4 are the worst for boredom and we achieve a great many chores.
A wonderful blessing happened yesterday morning. A little back story: from the time the kids wake up till breakfast they are in charge of their screen time. Two days ago our internet went out, which means no Netflix on any of the xboxes. This morning one by one the children piled into our bed and we watched OTA pbs children’s cartoons. I got to cuddle with the kids while watching the very childish antics of Curious George. The older kids called shenanigans on some of the “plot” points and one called out that jumpy the squirrel was most likely Air Assault.
It was a great start to an otherwise blah day, stomach upset, a headache and lots of people in and out of the house made for not the best overall. But we accomplished all our schoolwork and got the internet back to working! Yeah me!
