TV Withdrawal

I decided to limit tv watching in our household..again. With all the stress of the last year we've let the tv watching pretty much get out of hand for our own taste. So with that has come the withdrawal symptoms. This has pretty much been the conversation 3 to 4 to 5 or more times a day, every day.

W: Can we watch Bolt?

Momma: No, we're going to play with toys.

Super N: Can we watch Bolt?

Momma: No, we're going to play.

W: I wanna watch Bolt!!

Momma: NO! And do not talk to me like that.

W: But I wanna watch Bolt!!

Momma: I said No and I won't talk about it anymore, no Bolt!

W: Can I watch TV?

Super N: TV?!!

Momma: NO! (Internal Dialogue...I'm gonna take you out if you ask me again...)

Baby J: gerighsighghgs (As he's eating his cereal...)

Now they're all sitting happily in front of me on the floor playing with the blocks and Mega Legos I sat out. Now maybe I can at least finish my cup of coffee and check online for a little bit before I sit down with them.

Funny, I was thinking of posting our TV/screen situation on my blog. We have no limits on screen time and never have. I'm always amazed when Princess walks up and turns the TV off to go play. She probably watches more than families who set limits, but it works well for us.

I know that conversation. I know it well!
