"I'm looking for my friends..."

Day 5.
January 5th, 2009

I am grateful for TV.

My children don't watch a lot of TV. Not because I'm stuck up, or think your children are tainted if they do, I just would rather them do a lot of other more imaginative things than sit on the couch. And I see the vegetative state they enter into when they do watch even two minutes of television. So, we stay away except for a token 30 minutes or one show/video per day.

But wow, when you need it, you need it.
And today was one of those days. Days like today is why television was invented.
I woke up with the worst headache of my life. Really, I thought my head was going to explode. And I couldn't open my eyes without wanting to stab at my skull. So, I laid on the couch for awhile, and they were troopers reading books, playing near me. But that didn't last forever. Once I had taken sufficient pain relievers and made it to the kitchen for some nourishment, i just needed 30 minutes of peace. Thank you Sid the Science Kid.

  1. We have that same general rule here too, and Sid is one of the shows that makes the cut. Sean likes it, and he seems to have picked a few "scientific" things up from it. And also a song that has a line that goes something like "my mom is cool." I can't argue with that!
