This is what it looks like around our house lately.
We had to re-negotiate our internet connection with Comcast. In our strange new world, it was less expensive to get cable and internet than just internet. My children didn't know cable tv was a possibility in our house. They thought it was limited to hotel rooms and other people's houses. You can only imagine what it's like for them to go from rabbit ears (1-3 fuzzy channels) to limited cable (60+ channels). We've learned some important things this week.
1. Scooby Doo can provide critical thinking skills for a four year old. "Why would Scooby run away when he was barking at the monster before and the monster was afraid?" We've decided it would be much quicker if they just pulled the mask off the monster right away to expose Old Man (fill in the blank).
2. You will be embarrassed if your children walk into the room while you are watching E! OK, OK- you will be embarrassed if ANYONE walks into the room while you are watching E!
3. Animal Planet after 7:00 PM is the Animal Porn Channel. It's not such an issue for our family because we're pretty candid about the birds and bees and leopards and voles around here... but it must be difficult for some other families to explain why one leopard just can't seem to jump over the other.
Hmmm... I have to wrap this up. Law and Order's starting. If I miss it, I don't know when it'll be on next.
