Today was difficult. We had our teacher for technology come for a home visit to see the space he will be working in. Tristan and I had been doing math prior to his arrival. It had been challenging and Tristan had to sit in confusion trying to work through the problems before they became clear. Thinking lately has become more difficult. It was hard to stay on task.
As soon as the guest was seated he started rolling around, standing on his head, plugging in his computer. I asked him to stay on task and then he said he needed help (or me to do it for him) and I asked him to try and work through it. Then he started being a little fresh and then even worse just plain stupid.
He has just spent the last 4 days acting in this Shakespeare play in the city. He has been immersed in Shakespeare and even spent the morning rehearsing his second Shakespeare piece for A Midsummers Nights Dream. Our guest asked him what play it was that he was just in and Tristan sat there dumbfounded and eventually said, "Oh! was it Shakespeare???"
Oh my! His brain has totally turned to mush. There was only one thing I could do. I didn't ban computer games entirely. I wanted to. I made a new law! No entertainment related computer usage before 7pm during the week or before 3pm on the weekends. If there is any infraction, computer time will be revoked after 7pm that evening. That I was able to negotiate with limited drama. I think he thought he got off easy given my disgust at the state of the union.
And then I went upstairs, shaved my feminine legs and painted my toes!
