I will admit, I have gotten in the bad habit of allowing Grace, my 7 year-old watch t.v. upstairs or play her DSi when I know there is something I want to watch. I don't like that I do that. With all the technology today, if it is something I really need to watch I can record the silly show and spend more time with my daughter.
I have just noticed in the past 2 or 3 months she has been getting into certain shows and wanting to record them. I have seen her get upset when she misses a show. Not a stomping, crying outburst, but she sure wasn't happy. To me that is loving your television too much. There are so many other things we could be doing.
Tonight we had a talk. I told her all her shows she recorded would be deleted. At first I could tell she wasn't a fan, but it really didn't bother her. I told her we would be doing more activities, together and watching less t.v. She really was alright with it. Who wouldn't want to spend more time with me! : )
Here was the project we did tonight. It is called Create & Color Glitter Horses. She got it for a classmate for her birthday. Super fun way to make sun catchers.
Grace and daddy doing the project together.
Trying to get the "glitter lava ice" on the horse was not very easy. It was very sticky, but fun!
The horse all done and waiting to dry. Tomorrow we will color with the special markers. Grace was so excited! I love that!!
