02 May Some Kind of Family
One day last week (don’t ask me which day because it’s all a blur) I was desperately trying to distract Iris in attempts to ward-off an inevitable tantrum, so I kindly asked her if she wanted to watch Cinderella II when we got home. Before she could answer, my oldest daughter interjects, “Mom, she shouldn’t be watching a video today, don’t you know it’s Turn Off Your TV Week?”. Of course I knew because anti-TV posters were plastered all over the doctor’s office walls and you know how many times we were there last week. My swift and steadfast reply, “Well, Julia, we aren’t a Turn Off Your TV kind of family.”
And if that’s not something to be proud of, I don’t know what is.
