Victory!

We had a TV free day yesterday! Well, Lucy did. I watched a couple shows after she went to bed. But not before I finished some sewing projects I needed to get done. I felt okay about it. The first thing she asked for when she woke up was to "watch a movie," and throughout the day she asked for Peep, but we just did other things...we played games and read books, she played in my room while I folded laundry and then for a while, she actually played in her room. I really like the suggestion of scheduling more activities. Without a car it's hard for us to get out, which I think exacerbates the issue-at least in the winter. I realize, though, that there are a lot of activities we can do at home that I just don't make enough time for. I should also schedule more playdates. Anyway-Victory for us yesterday. Yeah!

Way to go Anna!

By the way, I have a book called "The big book of happy" with lots of games and activities for kids. They list how many people you need and the appropriate age. I used it a little last winter and will use it again this one. Let me know if you are interested in borrowing it!

I totally know what you mean by "without a car"! Adam and I have been sharing a car for quite a few months now. Not so fun, esp. in the winter like you said. I've found scheduling playdates helps... and I've had GREAT success planning activities with other people in the ward that live close. Pretty much all fall I carpooled 3 times a week to various places like the library with them. I was kinda hestitate to ask for rides so often at first. But I've found most people are so excited to have someone else come with them that the extra couple minutes of driving doesn't bother them.
