I love this picture.
All three of my children snuggled quietly together and watching a movie. We have been watching a lot of movies lately. Which is kind of funny because our big TV died last month, so we took the TV out of the play room and moved it upstairs, and then borrowed a TV from my in-laws. And because I am pretty lame when it comes to technology (mostly by choice, just so you know...) and because Brian isn't about to venture downstairs without a much stronger motivation, we haven't bothered to hook it up to the DVD player. It does play video tapes though, so we went to Pa Dave's and loaded up on the Disney Classics. I didn't realize before but my children had never seen Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Mulan, Pocahontas, or The Three Caballeros.
Now you know my horrible secret. My children have been suffering from Disney deprivation!
Actually it has been really fun watching them "discover" some of my favorite movies. By having to regress, technologically speaking, it's actually helped us try something new. I am also secretly amused by how flummoxed they are by the concept of rewinding something, "Mom! It's not working!" "Yes it is." "I pushed rewind and then play and it didn't go back at all!" "Well you have to give it a minute. See?" "But it's been rewinding forever!" Ah, these poor children who've always just been able to push the jump back button on the DVD remote. I guess this is a good lesson in delayed gratification...
