We're tv people. There I said it.
We have four *cringes* televisions in our house.
One in the family room, one in my bedroom and one set in each of my stepdaughter's rooms.
I know, I know, what can I say? I grew up watching a lot of the tube and really never grew out of it.
I suppose it's because of this that I'm probably overly anal (if that's possible) about the twins' tv watching habits. I've always limited the amount of television they could watch focusing on doing activities with them instead.
Which frankly has backfired because now even when I want that electronic babysitter they typically aren't havin' it. And while I complain, secretly that does make me happy because I feel like I've done at least one thing right.
Until last night, when I asked my daughter what she thought she might wear for her first day of kindergarten next week.
"You know what I think would be cute? " I asked "Your new pink and black shirt with the leggings"
"Yeah" said J " but you know what might even be cuter, my new blue shirt with those leggings"
Overjoyed that my daughter had successfuly matched pieces from two outfits not purchased as matching sets I exclaimed "Yeah I think you're right. Let's go get them and see"
I dashed upstairs to grab the two outfits to have her try them on.
"Aww and cute" I cooed as she tried on the various combinations.
Just then my husband walked in the room.
"Whatcha doin?" he asked
"Playing Projick Runway" J says without missing a beat.
Well... I guess I now know what she does with Grandma while I'm at work.
