Can you believe it??? 2 posts in one day??
I really jsut need to confess something.....something that I normally wouldn't confess. Except now I'm trying to change this so I need to be kept accountable somehow. I allow my kids to watch TOO MUCH t.v. And some of you might be thinking that you do yourselves but probably not as much as mine do. I've realized that most of the day the television is on. They aren't even watching it most of the time (well, Clint maybe is- he's my t.v bug!!) . I don't know why I feel the need to add to the noise that is surround me at all times?? I'm not sure. I get so stressed sometime from their wildness and rough housing that I am telling them all the time to just go watch something.It doesn't help it just gets louder. Then to top it off Ben bought a XBOX 360 last weekend. I can hardly get the kids to do anything else. So this morning I decided to change all this. I made tickets that the kids will get in the morning for screen time. They get 3- 30 minute vouchers a day. (you all are probably thinking that this is WAY TOO much but beleive me this is way less than they usually use!) *really embarressed* The kids thought this was really fun! Clint of course used his up right away. (they have to wait til after school to use them). Ethan and Blake each used 2. I'm hoping this helps.
Phew....glad I got that off my chest.....confessions is good for the soul. I'll have to this more often.
