While lazing at home
A pop of purple
(Pardon the lame attempt at writing rhymes. Lol)
Not really a fave color but my closet seems to have quite a number of purples / violets...
We are on the first week of almost three months of school break. It's quite a long free time for my soon-to-be 3rd grader. I dread the thought of him whiling away his time by playing with the laptop, tablet or cellphone. Hello sedentary lifestyle! So far, we have managed to think of activities to fill our long days.
A few days ago, he was told to take an afternoon nap to make up for lost sleep during the days he was reviewing for their final tests. He did, but not too willingly (haha! kids!), because he wanted to spend it playing instead. The other time, we did origami and spent the afternoon cutting and folding used paper to make a crown, sunglasses and a 4-point star which he called a ninja star. Lol. His tattered bear is now the beneficiary of the origami figures.
In between activities, he would be allowed to watch tv. Or he could play the ipad for a limited time as long as he also reads the storybooks I downloaded for him. Like I said, so far so good. I just have to not let him have his way with the gadgets. There are some other things he could do.
Fortunately, he is also fond of tinkering with his Lego blocks, reading his Wimpy Kid books and running around pretend-playing he is some cowboy, soldier or superhero. The longer he does it, zipping in and out of the rooms, up and down the stairs and bouncing on beds, the better for me.
Right this very minute, he's watching Amazing World of Gumball on Cartoon Network while alternately pretend-playing he's a ninja. And I'm blogging, bloghopping, trying out virtual stock market at wallstreetsurvivor.com, checking my emails and updating my social network sites. Lol.
We're both good. :)
