Thinking out loud ...

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?

Me: No.

Her: For my birthday?

Me: Uhm, it doesn't exactly work that way.

Her: No?

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?


  1. That's so cute! Benji has been telling me that I can have one more baby, to which I reply - Oh really! I love that Phineas and Ferb song too! I need to get that cd.

  2. We are doing a TV free week. nobody in the family gets to watch TV for 7 days.
    It was also supposed to include not only TV, but also cell phones and computers for 7 days.

    You can see how well that computer part worked out.

  3. SO CUTE.
    Mine cracks me up daily.
    all day.
    entirely worth the early morning and late night working so we can hang together all day.


  4. Good for you going without tv all day. Too cute about the younger brothers.

  5. I used to ask for a little sister for my birthday...and any other holiday I could think of...never got one though **tear**


  6. That is so cute!

    Way to go with no TV! I think if I did that, the kids here would pack up and leave! LOL!

  7. Aw, what a cute story.

    I don't remember the last time that we went without tv around here.

  8. I'm so amazed that your TV was off all day. I can't say that I have a memory of such an event. So you go, good girl gone redneck!

    I love the little brother story. I don't know what I will say when my daughter asks. :-)
