So we had a TV-free day today. I kept the girls home from school, due to car problems. And it was a wonderful day, guess it wasn’t a complete retreat since I have been on the computer and the phone a bit…still.
We danced salsa; doodled; then they spontaneously created “study posters” for their room, vocabulary and spelling, alphabet practice for the little one, some words. They did each other’s hair, and mine. They made their own snack. Spontaneously made instruments out of their plastic easter eggs: putting rice in them and duct tape around. Played music. Now they’re in their room playing some imaginative game regarding teddy bears and “a restaurant.”
It’s quietly raining outside, and we haven’t been outside all day. And that’s o.k. Maybe I’ll take them with me to walk the dog before it gets too dark.
