The spell was not lifted, the curse was not broken, the addiction was not overcome.
They still love their screens. A Lot.
We were nearly screen free for a month. But a few days of bad weather and a bad cut on Daniel's foot prompted us to let them have some movie time. Plus we HAD to to watch the Harry Potter movie after reading the book! Right!? So it was not so much a screen-free month as a screen- lite month.
We are back to trying to hold the line on the screen limits. Hopefully, the screen drama will not rage out of control any time soon...
This morning the kids took a device down to their playroom so they could listen to music. Later I found about a hundred new photos on it... Here is a sample from their impromptu photo shoot. ;))
