Mommy Memos: Television
The divorce remodel is almost done! Yesterday, there was a flurry of activity (because I told Mike we weren’t going to Missoula if it wasn’t done). The kids were on their own to play and get homework done and generally keep themselves occupied. I missed them! I am loving our evening routine—homework, early dinner, hot tub or games, bath time, and snuggle time.
I have made a no t.v. rule during the weeknights (except for Grey’s Anatomy). I am NOT opposed to t.v. Anyone who says t.v. isn’t a good babysitter is full of it. Somedays it’s been my only way to shower, start dinner, or have a few moments of sanity…besides, it’s educational for the most part. Matthew’s favorite show is Bob-O, or as it’s better known as, “Spongebob Squarepants.” My low point was one day I was watching Bob-O and laughing, then turned around and saw there weren’t any kids in the room. Tonight, there is going to be a no work rule. I am not a routine person…my kids napped on the go…but my little routine during the work week works for me.
