then he shouldn't be able to think of a million things he needs/wants to do as soon as he is told it is bedtime? hmm

Kids make me laugh when they come out of school...

Mum: How was school?

Kid: <shrugs>

Mum: What did you learn?

Kid: Nothing

Mum: Did you do anything fun?

Kid: No

Then it gets to bedtime....

"Muuuum, guess what I did at school today? It was excellent!"

My children only develop the ability to play together creatively and cooperatively after 7pm.

That's great that he has so many ideas - so he can write a list at bedtime to make sure he has lots to do the next day grin

And if they were genuinely genuinely bored, they could pass the time tidying their bedrooms....surely......

My son is a bit like this. He gets in from school and we have this conversaion:

me - "Hi! did you have a good day?"
him - "umm"
me - "what did you do?"
him - "dunno"
me - "Learn anything?"
him - "no"
me - "what did you do in Science?"
him - "can't remember"

later that night on facebook:

DS - "Science was hilarious today!"
friend - "omg I know! best lesson ever!"
DS - "I know! when we were doing that experiement with the onion and it sprayed in Lucy's eye! haha"
friend - "hahaha that was hilarious! or when Mr Brown was trying to explain onion skin cells and Tom asked if we could eat them! haha"

After seeing this I say:

"So! you had a good science lesson today then?"
ds - (shrugs) "it was alright"
