Let this serve as a warning to any parents planning on "productive quiet time" for their overactive child:
11-year-old girl: The worst part about my week was yesterday when I had to sit in my bed all day and knit! Just knit. Or read. Knit or read. But just sit in my bed and only knit or read!
HEB: Hey, hey, hey: knitting isn't bad. Why would that be the worst part of your week?
11yog: Knitting is torture! When all you can do is knit and the whole house is silent, it's the worst thing in the world!
