Step Away From The TV


It might be time to turn off the TV and kick the kids outside when they notice that the actress in the Space Bag commercial has changed. The last time it came on I heard Aidan exclaim, "Oh no, you've got to be kidding me! That lady uses Space Bags, too?"

I'm so glad the infomercials have made such an impact on his life. Example #6000 that I suck at this parenting thing.

You do NOT suck! My kids actually wanted to get me those bags for Christmas... how thoughtful of them...

My Aiden informed my mom that she needed the Space Bags b/c she has so much stuff in her closet...and then proceeded to give his on version of the infomercial. I was so proud.

Girl, you have got to stop being so hard on yourself!

Instead of thinking "I am a bad parent" think "My kids have good observation skills and can differentiate between unskilled infomercial actresses."

Laughing so hard I almost spit my water out! Word of wisdom for today: Any parent who knows they suck does not suck! Ha! How's that? Maybe on a pillow?

Love it.

Did you notice that the adult blanket with sleeves (a snuggli or some crap like that) was actualy written about in all the major newspaper last week - crazy stuff.

What is is about that commercial? Seriously, there must be something programmed into it to get our attention, or something. When Jessica and the boys were here, that commercial came on and I watched in awed horror as Julyan recited the whole thing along with the actress while making all the motions she was making. Yikes! I'm scared.
