It’s officially the first day of summer at my house. My kids are here, there is no school for anyone, I’m off until August 15th, and it’s 94 degrees outside.
My rule is that there is no more than 2 hours of TV in one day. I’ve now established that if you, my son, want to watch another half an hour, you have to match that with exercise. Boy, did I have complaining for the first hour after the TV was shut off. That was at 11am. It’s 1:15, and I lasted 2 hours. I told them they could watch one more half hour if they find my glasses. You never saw two boys move so fast through the house, and within minutes, they had them.
A Mom has to do what a Mom has to do. Peace, for one more half hour. Then we really will build solar ovens, paint, go to the movies, build something out of Legos. But, for now…Jimmy Neutron is on, and I for one am thankful.
