Put down the remote

If you wake up on a Monday morning, feeling lowly for no particular reason.

If you go through the morning routine, pick out school clothes for the kids, kiss them as they leave for school, make oatmeal, have breakfast with your toddler, put a load of laundry in, still with a dark cloud hanging over your head, even though the sun is shinning brightly outdoors…

Don’t turn on the television and sit down with a hot mug of coffee with a little milk and turn on a morning show only to see the worlds most amazingly talented children.  Kids who aren’t even potty trained pointing out where Turkey is on the map.  Children who could catch a down beat on the drums at six months old or girls who don’t even have their periods yet who can sing like Whitney Houston.

Don’t do it.

Trust me.

I knew there was a reason why I don’t EVER turn on the television during the day.

    Oh tell me about it sister . . .The 17 month old who is reading . . .
    Have you seen her?

    Meanwhile I’m telling my three year old not to eat the plastic letters . . . .(that he cannot yet identify)

    (I always convince myself that those children will grow up to be completely socially inept . . .And my children are far cuter anyway!!) (lol)

    It makes me feel a little better!

    I was just told this morning that “The Choo-Choo’s” language is delayed . . .

    (Duh . ..Do you see the hearing aids in his ears??!!)

    I’m glad I missed this show . . .

    Sorry you had to watch . . .:(

    Tell me about it! No TV here there is enough to compare my family to without it.

    eek! I wouldn’t know how to relate to a kid like that! I much prefer our little love bugs and all their sweet smiles!
