Before we moved to New York, we sold our T.V. Our portable DVD player went kaput a few months ago because Micah shoved too many cheerios inside. Our ipod mysteriously went missing one day when I left Micah alone in close proximity to it for a mere five seconds or so. We have a computer but it is in our basement and so not in a convenient location during the day and I can usually only go online when both the kids are down for their joint afternoon nap! I can put movies on for Micah or catch online shows but often do not want to be downstairs where the sunlight seems to disappear.
Suffice to say, I often feel as though we’re living in the dark ages and with a willful two year old who likes to stay constantly entertained, I sometimes find myself yearning for the ability to turn on a show or movie…or even just some music! Anything to distract him.
It can be good, it can be hard! I know Micah enjoys books more now which is an invaluable bonus. I think his attention span is improving. And no, I am not trying to make an anti-entertainment statement…if we can fix our portable DVD player I will be a happy mama! Regardless, it is definitely a strange place to find oneself in our day in age. Can anyone relate?:)
