(that would be Madd and her baby.)
"Mom... do you wanna play a game with me?"
"How 'bout these? Tangrams."
and we got into our new Illusions kit for a minute. (it was on hand.)
that prompted Madd to go downstairs and get the color kit.
and the kaleidoscope kit.
and then the Light kit.
another trip downstairs,
and whadaya know, we found a few other things to bring up.
an' there was Peep.
and Ice Age game for the other one.
and Carmen Sandiego (Treasures of Knowledge).
...for both. Madd was watchin' and learnin'.
we'll be printing, as soon as our printer is repaired, you can be sure!
oh - and this treasure lets you pick a background, and design your own, then print. or it will generate a puzzle for you. I picked it up at toys-r-us a couple of years ago.
some Rumis for Mama and Trev...
until the Wild Kratts came on.
(they're so into the Kratts.)
back to Rumis.
an' Leapster Play.
Diego, and Learn to Draw & Write, actually.
discussions of The Electric Company, 1970's style.
(Mama is a seventies-child, via 1968.)
which of course led to a search of E.C. 70's videos. found 'em on Hulu.
back to computer play.
the hamster wheel again (now really-- thank goodness we have it -five runs a day?- for these 20 degree days.)
and the States puzzle.
"West Virginia!" says Trev. "Home of The Dreaded Moth Man."
"What!?! Does it say that?"
"No... but that's where The Dreaded Moth Man is from."
"Oh!" Silly Mama. I totally thought it did. lol.
art. via crayons and colored pencils and an impending visit with The Cousins.
an' back to The States.
funny... I was having a hankering for a day like this. a day that wanted no suggestion or ideas from the Mama...
a day that was so rich,
I'll take it.
