Unplug it Day.



If you're not familiar with it, you can click the logo to learn more.
I sneak on the computer early to check my email before the kids get up.
And I generally watch The Today Show with my breakfast.
Shhhh. Don't tell my kids.

I turn everything off when they get up and they have to go all day without.
Because that's the kind of mom I am.

Happy Thursday!

Love this idea...really enjoy watching the kids' creativity blossom when they can't watch the boob tube!

My kids don't get much tv or computer time anyways...we have plenty of days when they don't do either all day. It is me that has the computer addiction:-)

Wendy said...

I am SO telling on you! Muahahaha!

Erica said...

you are a good mommy :)

Julie said...

I'm that kind of mom, too. Or...I turn on something that J won't watch--like HGTV or something ;)

Laura said...

can I just unplug my kids instead?

I am right there with you. NO ONE believes me when I tell them we rarely have the tv on. I'm not pretentious. I just don't like it or the sound. I do tune in to GMA or Today every once in awhile. And we never miss "LOST" when it's on. But just sound or going all the time? I go nuts when I go into homes where that's happening. Like my mom and stepdad's house. IT'S NEVER OFF!!! Oh thank you. I feel all cleansed now. lol

Brilliant idea but don't know if I could pull it off.

Example: we're reading the Hardy Boys books (writted in the 1920s remember) to my 5 yr old & when the boys don't know something he asks me "why don't they just google it, Mommy?"

Thanks for visiting, by the way!

LOL! I'd love to! Is there a specific day? I was actually thinking of instituting a no-tv day in our house once a week. For ALL people who live here! Daddy's ESPN? OFF. Mommy's HGTV and DVR'd shows? OFF. No Wow, wow, Wubbzy or Big Cat Diary for the kids. OFF.

But will I ever do it? We'll see. :)

Ok...I would be so screwed if we did this in my house. There are certain times during the day when I could bow down to the TV & computer. They are the distraction my kids need, so I can get a breath of sanity. hahahaha Way to sneek yours in there girl!

You're too funny. Today my oldest daughter asked for dessert and I was like,"I don't know-ow..." And she got this pouty lip and said,"I haven't had any dessert thing all day!" I said,"Some people don't have dessert their whole lives. Why do you think you get dessert every day?" I paused and said,"Because I do?" She laughed and said,"Yes." She ended up with a milkshake (homemade) and what did I do tonight? Baked a cake. I do tell them they don't get dessert every night...but I do. :) Because that's the kind of mom I am!

Sounds like your a great Mom - I'm amused that you cheat though :P
