Yes, that is two Nintendos he is playing at once.... spot the game junkie. Serious moderation tactics required with him.
Am I alone in not wanting these school holidays to end?
They go so fast.... even when you do 'nothing'.
Despite my boys being sick for the first 2 weeks of their holidays, we have still cherished our time together with no school routine pressures. School reports came out just after term finished but we didn't get around to clearing out our post office box and fetching the reports until yesterday. We did a lot of 'high fiving' after opening them... both my lads did so well. Little one was slightly distraught though as his art mark was a disappointment to him... it was his only 'non A' as he calls it. "I just don't think she likes me. It's very subjective you know" (hmm, since when do 8 yr olds know about subjectivity?!!).
Big son put it all into perspective. "C'mon, we're not going to need art to be good surgeons, just get over it".
They've got it all worked out.
