Anyways, Ben and I spend perhaps 1-2 hours weekly watching the TV. If that. Sometimes maybe more, but I can't remember when the "sometime" was? But the great thing is that my kids think they are real lucky that they get to watch 30 minutes of TV once a week. Ha. Friday afternoon at 3pm they get to watch "Toot and Puddle." We were first introduced to these pigs via the old-fashion way of reading books. Low and behold they have their own series. It's a good program and I enjoy watching it with them. Emmy mainly enjoys getting to eat her snack on the couch and occasionally looking up at the TV and laughing at the pigs.
Luckily cable hasn't changed our lives and the comic strip given to me by my in-laws still really hits home:
Kids: "ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!. . . "
Mom: "What are you 3 laughing about?"
Kids: "I burped, Wren tooted, and Zoe sneezed all at the same time."
Other kid: "It was the funniest thing we've seen all day."
Mom: "Which is a very strong argument for upgrading our cable subscription."
