When we do manage to chill out and take it easy these are some of the things we do:
Video Games –
DS = Super Mario Brothers and Mario Kart. He also enjoys the Touchmaster games if Mario isn’t keeping his attention.
PS3: Indiana Jones 2 Lego, loves this but refuses to share the Legos. get’s quite angry about it. We also enjoy playing Rayman: Origins but still he wants to collect and kill everything and only wants me to follow along and revive him when he dies.
Boardgames: Operation, Connect 4, KidPoker (very loosely based on Hold Em)
Movies: Megamind – We really love this movie. Classic movie where the kids laugh at different parts than we do. Good cast, smartly written and well animated.
Astro Boy – Loved this one about a boy turned into a robot trying to fit in.
Spy Kids: The new one that Jessica Alba phoned in. Not the greatest movie but he really enjoyed it.
Power Rangers the Movie: God awful. Avert your eyes. He loves it.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: He loves the books too.
Phineas & Ferb: I love this more than he does. I think it’s one of the best cartoons out there. Very funny but not mean in spirit or unnecessarily gross.
