My children (well, at least two of them) have now been watching Dora the Explorer for the past hour. As in JOSIAH (yes, my SON Josiah), has been sitting still ENGAGED with television.
All I have ever wanted in life was to get my kids addicted to television so I could not let them watch it and bust it out whenever I really needed to get something done. Up until this point, Nia was the only one for whom I accomplished my objective. She is like in TV coma when she's watching. The boys-- not so much. Until tonight. Nico is generally bouncing off the walls, and Josiah goes along with him for the ride.
But tonight Nico is not here. He went to church with his dad. He loves Jesus more than the other kids. They are kind of heathens. Well, Josiah is a heathen. His sister has a whole bunch of mouth herpes that are making her cry and all grumpy, so I told her she could stay home and watch tv until her eyes got red and puss-filled. I was planning on just putting Josiah down to bed, but he got so engaged in the television that I could bring myself to tear him away. Plus theoretically, it means he will sleep later in the morning. Theoretically.
Tomorrow is our sabbath... we NEED it. We're chillin' all stinkin' day long. I went out to get water and diesel. Our truck is headed to Port tomorrow (without us) so we will be stuck in the house ALL DAY LONG! Woo Hoo!
Alright homeboys, outie. I have some great pics to post-- possibly tomorrow...
