I think it must be good for children to sometimes be bored out of their skulls. I spent a good bit of my childhood in this state, and I think it has made me a more creative, jocular person. My personality has many levels due to childhood boredom. Or, if you want to look at it from someone else’s point of view, perhaps my childhood boredom has just made me weird and socially limited.
Well, either way, I am now instilling these traits into my two daughters. While I am packing, painting, and cleaning, they have no choice but to entertain themselves. Most of their time is put toward either making eachother laugh, or… coloring. I have found many many pieces of artwork around the house these past few days.
