Let the Children be Bored

It was a Saturday morning and I decided to continue to sleep a little bit more despite knowing that both little milkie and milo were awake. Just once, I told myself, I needed that sleep after waking up several times in the middle of the night, thanks to little milo who kept asking for milk every 2 hours or so.

And when I finally woke up, I was surprise to see the kids entertaining themselves, without the TV nor the iPad!


Little milo was laughing his head off and when I sat on the sofa, he continued to laugh, repeatedly pointing his finger at the book, and making a big circle with his hand, and then tilting his head to the side. It took me quite a while before I understand what he was trying to tell me.


BECAUSE THE RED RHINOCEROS IS UPSIDE DOWN! Okay, it’s lame but he had fun, TONS of it! #istilldontgetit


Then we’ve got little milkie, sitting quietly on the floor, doodling. And what amazed me was the fact that she drew it on pieces of cardboard, after requesting her grandma to cut a piece of big unwanted cardboard into smaller pieces!


Maybe, it wasn’t really that bad to wake up later than the children at times. Maybe, it wasn’t really that bad to let them be bored (and not given electronic gadgets) so that they can think of something to do on their own.
