POTD Day 38: Back when I was a Child....
The above 2 girls are having a sleepover tonight and have played outside, played school and a few other "non screen" activities (that is a disclaimer so I can keep you in the light of knowing that I really am a great mom...)... but one other activity has been to go to "Club Penguin" online. They are teaching each other "cheats" which, as a teacher, I dislike the sound of and are spending their coins on cute shoes, disco floors (for their igloos), and other interesting items. A few weeks ago, my daughter actually said (mind you-she is EIGHT)..."I have to meet Duncan at Club Penguin at 6:30...his name is Hotwheels22 <not his real name but something similar...again, I am a great mom!>... :)
At least they are interacting with each other as they are online... they really are fun to listen to but it is pretty amazing that the kids these days have such indulgences in their lives. Do I sound like an 80 year old or what?
It is a sunny weekend in the NW-we are LOVING it!!! Happy Weekend to you too... FFF HHH (Feel Free to Follow Heidi Has a Hobby)..... :)
