Back to the Drawing Board
Much to my shame, there are days when the iphone, wii and tv take my kids off my hands.
I'm not proud of this, but it happens.
To draw them back into my grasp, the best thing for me to do is to drop everything, housework, work work and head-somewhere-else activities and pick up a marker and start drawing. Like a pied piper, the drawing re-sets the stage and we all begin again.
