First off, we spent an ENTIRE day today without turning on the television. That's a true miracle in and of itself. I don't know that in my daughter's not-quite-three-years that this has happened at all until today. Now, true, we did have computer time, separately and together, but no TV. Yay, me!!!
Second, a cute kid story from tonight, while my daughter was 'kind of' falling asleep:
Her: Uncle L. is your little brother, Mommy.
Me: That's right.
Her: And Daddy, Uncle J.
Me: Ah-ha. (Not sure if she understands that hubby is the younger sibling of the two, but not going to get into it when it was a rough enough bedtime as it was!)
Her: Who is my little brother?
Me: (UH ...) You don't have one ... yet?
Her: I don't?
Her: For my birthday?
Me: Uhm, it doesn't exactly work that way.
Me: Go to sleep, sweetheart.
From the mouths of babes, no? And it's likely because of television she asked this. As we have the Phineas and Ferb CD and there's a song in there that starts off "Little brothers," and then there is always Olivia, who talks about her little bother. It's all good, though. See why we survived a day without TV?
I know I had more to say, but I just totally lost track of my thoughts. I think the whole Little Brother thing threw me for a bit of a loop.
How 'bout you? If you have wee ones, did they say anything cute today?
