Eliza and I have a lot of conversations about what activities we are going to do in our free time. Luckily for me, Eliza is a pretty flexible kid who likes a lot of different things. She is a wee bit obsessed with Kirby.
Eliza is allowed to play video games (oh the horror!) but she is limited to how much she can play. She has adopted the philosophy "there is more to life than video games" which is refreshing.
Eliza was OK with that and told me her brain's life cycle was OK with the idea too.
Her brain's life cycle? Why yes! There are 6 stages in Eliza's brain's life cycle.
First your brain reads,
Then your brain does animals (this could include the Museum of Natural History or the zoo),
Then your brain does art work,
Then your brain does Ninjago Legos (conveniently for Eliza's brain her mother's brain gets to assemble these),
Then you brain plays board games,
And last, your brain gets to play a little bit if video games.
Seems like a pretty good "life cycle" to me. Now if we could work in eating and sleeping into that we'd be all set!
