From the "we should have done this years ago" file..

Santa had cable installed in Thing Two's room.  
It's 7:30 a.m. and I've  enjoyed two cups of coffee and read emails/blogs/message boards in total silence.  Not a creature has stirred, not even my morning Thing!  (whose usual internal alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. rain/shine/track on/track off/weekday/weekend).  

Don't you love the honeymoon phase that comes after something new?

*disclaimer:  yes, I know a tv in a kid's room is wrong and we'll end up regretting this action at some point.  But for now:  did I mention how much I love my quiet and alone time in the morning?

Sometimes silence comes at a price! I'm sure you'll keep his focus on what's important ... in the meantime, it's school break, time to break a few rules, right?

I too know I will soon be paying for my lacksidasical parenting ways, but it sure is nice to sleep in until 8!

snicker snicker - NOT that I'm in any way implying that you have flimzy parenting skills. . . just poking fun at my own. I just wanted to clarify that for ya!

I'm feeling the exact same way about our Wii. I already feel myself regretting it, yet I have LOVED the peace it can bring!
