Yesterday, Alex misbehaved and as a consequence, lost all screen time. "Screen time" is defined in our household as tv, movies, computers, and any and all video games.
Alex came home from camp and REALLY wanted to play the Indiana Jones Lego video game on the PS3. But, Carl held firm to the punishment that had been handed out the day before.
So Alex disappeared to do art.
Thirty minutes later, he had created his own PS3 controller.
And drawn his own Indiana Jones Lego screen shot.
And he asked Carl if he played the drawn screen game with his drawn controller, if that counted as "screen time."
It was so clever I almost wanted to award him his much-desired screen time back.
