Three years ago I captured this picture as my boys (Zep, 2 years old and B.E., 14 months) watched their favorite show at that time. Good ol' Mickey Mouse!
I used TV a lot then for a break, probably...most definitely, way too much. I find it funny that as we've added another child to the mix the TV time has gone down to absolutely nothing. I'm sure some of that has to do with not having cable, but we still have PBS folks...and that channel is packed with great kids' shows. I think a lot of it is because we're not home as much and it just doesn't cross my mind anymore. The boys do get to play their XBox 4 days a week, depending on their behavior, for a limited amount of time...and yet again, I'll admit that I am horrible when it comes to keeping up with those limits. Next year, I'm making changes I tell ya! Radical changes! ;)
We had a lull in our afternoon yesterday and I thought I'd pop in a DVD for B.E. and Sunshine. I dug all the way to the back of the stack for one of our old Baby Einstein movies. I sat the kids down, turned on the movie, snapped a picture....just before Sunshine got bored and crawled right out of the room. Yep, no interest AT ALL!
I dug into the depths of our entertainment center and returned with nothing more than this picture! It sure is cute to compare the two though, isn't it???
