becoming a bigger, better, me....declaring turn the TV off Tuesday!!!

On my journey to become a bigger, better, me I realized I have the same boring routine every morning. It really isn't a bad routine......just always the same. Give the kids cereal & milk, turn on the news, drink my coffee, start the laundry, clean the kitchen. You probably feel asleep reading the excitement of it!

So yesterday I realized I had not listened to MY music in such a long time. It has been so long that I probably wouldn't recognize most of the music that has been released in the past 2 years. I searched through some CDs of mine ( I know...CDs!!! I do have an Ipod, I just didn't want to mess with it) and found 5 that I love and had not heard in a while. I put them in the CD player, selected random shuffle, and enjoyed the tunes as I carried on with my day.

The best part of the morning was when Zander & Kaya walked out of the playroom with their sunglasses on. Kylie Mynogue's song "Can't Get you Outta my Head" was playing and Kaya toddled out here dancing away and laughing nonstop. That is when I dropped the dishcloth, put on my sunglasses, and the 3 of us danced in our pajamas! That is when I was bursting with happiness and I said to the kids, "I declare Turn off the TV Tuesdays!".

we've had a tv free week ourselves, but it was not birthed out of such fun. (it was payback for a very ugly tantrum). i didn't even think we watched much tv, but it had become our go-to thing to do. I like watching my kids have to think of other things to do. They have become more creative and helpful, but they also have had a lot more fights and needed more interaction with me. I love the idea of having one day a week off. Love you!
