A few days without the internet proved a couple things, we can live with out it (although we love it and missed it while it was down. The first day without the internet is very hard. Madigan felt like she was being punished and took it personally. I pointed out that I lived without the internet for 20+ years, how I survived was thru doing other things.
She read, played other games and she and her dad made up other games. She kicked it “old school” with shut the box and played with some of her toys she got for christmas, that have been neglected since Dec 26th. The Wii came back as a favorite.
We are back, looking forward to spring.
