Story time with the kids
Typically we will get the kids to bed separately. Lately, I'll play Minecraft with Connor for a bit and then I'll spend some time with Paige telling stories in her bed while Andrea and Connor work on homework or reading books. Every once in a while if they're in the mood for it, I'll do stories with both of them together. We like to play "Peter Pan Storytime", where we pretend Paige is a Mermaid, I'm Peter Pan and Connor is Captain Hook.
After Christmas, we started doing the "Cash Register" story. Connor and Paige pretend they're working in a store and I'll pretend to be different customers. I'll come in to the store and they will have to interact with the "customer" to help them find things and eventually check out. I like to act out all kinds of different people. Andrea happened to walk in the other night while I was pretending to be an old lady with a cane. She almost died laughing at us and just had to snap a picture.
