The doorbell rings. Kids thunder down the hall. Who could that be? Someone to play? No. Mommy picks up the plain, brown envelope and opens the seal. Children like mail, and gather round. She pulls out a green box and turns it over. It's......
our newest Veggie Tales Movie!
The kids really like Veggie Tales, and it's one of the few things I will let them watch on a Sunday. We have a sadly small collection, just a few videos, and I decided to get a new friend for the ones we already own. Suprise, kids!
Oren and Nathan immediately clamored to watch it and I, wanting peace and quiet, agreed. They sat on the couch quietly absorbed for not one, but two whole viewings.
We should be getting an Elmo's World collection tomorrow for William, who loves Elmo. I am hoping for the same enthralled, sit and watch it quietly, that I got today.
(In justification of my TV babysitting: the TV didn't even get turned on yesterday, and this morning we watched an hour of news. So they deserved it. After the second time, it got turned off and they went outside. I got some recipes chosen for our "around the world" tour during this time- see my food blog for more details!)
