Today is Wednesday.
This week Wednesday is a hump day of a different sort.
It is the midpoint in our TV Turn Off week.
We are doing TV Turn Off for the school week
and so far I am absolutely shocked at how well it has gone.
Since we outlawed not only the TV
but computers, video games and DS's,
I expected some melt downs.
An exponential increase in whining.
Boredom. Fighting amongst the little people.
Surprisingly, not one of those things has occurred.
This is especially surprising given the vast quantity of rain we have been getting lately..
it has rained off and on for the past three days!
wrestling, and laughing together.
I've seen all three kids listening to music
I've seen Kate making videos on her cell phone of her brother.
I have seen a lot of reading.
This has been a far more positive experience
than I expected
and far less troublesome than I had suspected it might be.
Rob and I will definitely be talking about ways we might want to
incorporate this "unplugged" time
into their lives more regularly.
Are you doing TV Turn Off Week this week?
If so, what positive changes have you noticed?
What negatives have you noticed?
What changes might you consider making after the week is over?
