With a seven year age gap in-between my girls it can sometimes end in warfare. They both need different things, even though Siobhan is more emotionally immature due to her autism. Sometimes it’s tough to please them both with fun and interesting things to do. We have a park near us and, sunshine permitting, we get out, kick a ball, have a run around and some spontaneous singing when the mood calls! Songs of choice right now are of course brought to you by Disney’s Frozen, can you tell, bet you can guess the song in the photo…
Once common hobby if you can call it that, is Minecraft. Have your kids introduced this to you? Do the names Stampy Long Nose and the Iballistic squid mean anything to you? Ahh then you will know how hard it is to get them off the technology.
Their’s is the Kindle’s, and we limit their use on them. It’s evolved in our house now and the sisters have banded together in a quest for all things Minecraft, so I am thankful for that, even if it has taken over our house!
We now have the books, all those essential tips on how to build a creeper coaster and what to do with a lava pit, confused?… Don’t ask!
Even the TV has been taken over and whenever they can it’s straight to the You Tube channel to watch Stampy Long Nose on one of his vidoes. I don’t understand you Minecraft, but I love you for bringing together my girls in a common passion. Even though it irritate’s me sometimes that they silently tap away on the Kindle, they are sitting together, with the occasional in depth question on a how to of this or that in their Minecraft world.
Do you find the same with your children?
Do they share a common hobby or pass time?
