Sometimes I think my job as a parent would be sooo much easier if there were no fast food restaraunts and no stupid television shows. Really..just those two things would help me out. Do you know what I go through every time we pass a McDonalds in the car? Maybe I should start making up my own Happy Meals complete with toy. Wait...I pretty much do that every day with Will's lunch box. Why isn't that good enough?
And you all know how I feel about t.v....is there a need for like 700 channels? When I was a kid (yes, here we go again..) there were 4 channels. PBS, NBC, CBS and ABC. I'm pretty sure that was it. Or maybe that's just what my parents told me. We weren't allowed to watch a lot of tv....it was Little House on the Prairie and Brady Bunch. I remember my dad watching Archie Bunker... I don't remember my mom watching tv at all. It was funny to me to go to friends houses and see their moms watching their "shows"...you know..soap operas. My mom didn't watch those...I don't think. Who knows though once we were all off at school.
I'm amazed at how tv has changed..and not just the number of channels on the set. I was nursing the baby to sleep tonight and decided to see what was on....It is ALL reality shows. Real people dancing, singing, losing weight, decorating houses, having babies, surviving on deserted islands, getting engaged...it's kind of funny isn't it? To think that any one of us could be famous? Maybe they'll run a mom blog tv show...I could have a camera crew follow me around all day. Don't you want to see me shopping in Target...changing diapers and nursing and driving kids around? You know you do.
