The Boob Tube is Flowing Again

Do you hear that?

Listen. . .

Yes, that is the Bob the Builder theme song! Which could only mean. . .

TV Turnoff Week is over!!!!!! (much fanfare and clapping)

We came through it all right even though the stinking New England weather decided to suck eggs late in the week. We weren't completely "screen free", though, as the children did park themselves in front of the upstairs computers and play games, usually around the same times they'd be watching television. Die harders would say we are missing the point, I would think.

(and as a side note, don't you think my children should be thrilled that we have TWO computers side-by-side in the upstairs office??? shouldn't that be plenty for them to share??? but, nooooooooooo, I am often called to referee a dispute between the three of them over whose turn it is to work the mouse and listen to "why can't we each get a computer????")

---------------------------------
This is completely unrelated, but here is photo of the kiddos from Easter. D is flashing some sort of gang signal, Belly is trying to look as angelic as possible so that she can get more candy and Jilly is voguing. Many thanks to Grammy for buying all their Easter outfits again this year, saving me the pain of clothes shopping for the kids.

The hubby is STILL giving me s**t for missing a stellar Red Sox play due to turn off week. The kids are easy-- it's the husbands who seem to adjust poorly. Good for you. I gave up after day 3.

Breathing a huge sigh of relief for you, and handing over a well-earned margarita.

Great picture too - what a bunch of cuties.

Now that picture speaks 1,000 words to me. A perfect glimpse into their personalities.

Wait...so it was tv turnoff week?

Oops.

(And wow, Dante looks like he's going on 13. WTF??)

Mrs Q, I only enforced this for the kids---puh-leez, FOF would have cheated like crazy if I had told him he couldn't watch tv. But, he did keep it off around the kids (didn't you honey???).

Also, Mom-101---for some reason, our school system announced it for this week vs. last, so I guess you could jump on board if you really wanted to! And, yes, D acts 13---never talks, teases his sisters like crazy and grabs his 'manhood' all the time. Just like a teen.

God, don't you love it when they all look nice at the same time? Beautiful kids!

Oh Man! I completely missed it. No TV week is my fav. Better late than never, right?

My husband's going to hate you ;-)

Cute, cute, and cute. Or should I say, yo homie.

As for the no TV, congrats! You've lived to tell the tale. That in and of itself is amazing.
