Don't tell my children this

There is some truth to this (From A.Word.A.Day)

A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor.
-Victor Hugo, novelist and dramatist (1802-1885)

Normally when my daughters have spare moments they are reading a book. They've started reading The Thirteenth Reality series. And just yesterday Rick Riordan's new book The Lost Hero arrived from Amazon, and two of my daughters have finished it already.

Baby Bop doesn't believe in being idle. At four now he some times just can't sit still. We were playing the simplied version of Life a couple days ago. (We spin and move the cars around.) He would spin, climb up on the couch, then climb back down, move his car, and climb back up. He wanted to play, but it was like his body couldn't stay still.
