A few things I am thankful for this week:
Coffee. Pure and simple. I like it black, nothing in it. I don’t even care if it’s hot or cold. I’m not even really sure if I care if it has caffeine in it (although I’m sure that helps). I just love the taste of coffee. It’s so relaxing to just sit down with a good old cuppa coffee.
Veggie Tales. I know, it sounds strange but hear me out. Before I had kids I always said I wouldn’t be one of those parents who put my child in front of the television and let them watch TV. I was thinking like a hour a week would be more than sufficient. Like I said, that was before I had kids. I soon found that sometimes Mommy just needs a few minutes of relative peace and quiet and she will do a lot of things she said she wouldn’t do… and letting kids watch some TV is much better than locking herself in her bedroom to have a mini-meltdown on those days that just aren’t going well.
We still don’t watch (or even have) regular TV channels. We do have quite a collection of Veggie Tales and What’s In the Bible DVDs. I guess my conscious doesn’t scream quite so loudly since I know my kids are at least watching wholesome TV instead of some of the stuff they have on air now.
