- Kids playing.
- Windows open with birds chirping
- TV on
Well I have kids, but one is too little to play and the other is too quiet when she's playing alone. Up until a couple of days ago its been to cold to open the windows and so? Lots of TV hours have been logged at this house.
BUT! I scream. But, it's only because I hate the quiet, we don't actually watch it. That's true, we don't. Not all the time. Olivia doesn't like to sit still for long. You know that's not totally true though. Olivia doesn't know all the words to Doc McStuffins by not watching.
My mom will read this and I know what her comment will be. "This coming from the girl who said she didn't want a TV in her home?!?!" Yep, I said that. Yep, I still mean it. But it's one thing to say it and mean it, and it's another thing to do it. Right? Because no one is eating brownies any more since we found out they have little nutrition value. I have a TV and the temptation is there.
I'm working on turning it off more often and now that spring is here and I can open the window and hear yard work being done (side note: that is one thing I love about apartment living. Yard work is getting done and I don't have to do it! But I guess I do pay for it, even if indirectly) and that does satisfy my need for ambient noise.
Next winter Axel might be able to play with Olivia a little more, you know, make a little more noise (the good kind. Both my children are great at screaming, the bad kind). I guess I just feel lonely with all that quiet around. Some might say I'm uncomfortable with my own thoughts, but I think the fact that I have a blog shows I'm quite infatuated with my own thoughts.
So. . . don't really know where I was going with this. Guess I just wanted to confess. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.
