somethings missing....

Can you guess?



Its our TV.
I am sick of it.

Last night Chad and I had a talk about the kind of parents we want to be. After the talk, we took the TV away. Its in my closet, retired. Lily woke up:

"bahters?(monsters inc.) Ah gooowwwwnn!! (all gone!)"

We made a trip to Ikea (my heaven remember?) and got Lily the easel, little table with chairs and that rad rug with roads all over it.

No more Nemo, more: playing, coloring, painting, building and learning.

This is going to be tough, I know.
But I know I will definitely not be regretting this decision.
Bring it on.

Good for you!! Too many of my students spend every waking hour at home watching tv or playing video games.

I think that's a fabulous idea. Daniel and I did away with our TV just so we can do more things together. It's helped even our relationship, and his studying.
