Thank You

I just want to take a moment to thank Disney and the creators of the Baby Einstein series of DVDs. Their products have smoothed over many a rough moment for our family. Mind you, our kids don't watch TV more than a couple of times a week - we keep it to a minimum. But when things are hectic and kids are screaming, it is wonderful to be able to pop in a DVD and shut them up - I mean, entertain them.

Julia has turned into a huge fan of the Baby Einstein series (or Baby Moses, as Kate calls them). Here she is eagerly watching Neighborhood Animals. Not even a pull on the ol' sippy cup can tear her eyes away. What I love about this video is Julia wants us to watch it with her, because she points at it, squeals, claps her hands, and makes sure that we are enjoying it, too.

So, once again, thank you Disney (who distributes the videos, and has provided countless princess-moments for our girls) and to Baby Einstein for helping us be calmer parents. Without them, we would actually have to do what our video-less forefathers have done since the dawn of time ... whatever that was.

Yes, well you thank them now. But what will you be doing when Julia starts singing the patracidal songs that Kate is so fond of?
