Last night Josh and I put the kids to bed around 9:30. It was a late night at church, not to mention the late night fast food meal I already shared about. Sooo, the girls wanted to watch a movie on their DVD player. We said no, of course. Well, I put their DVD player under a pillow on the chair in their room so that they couldn’t see it. (They know how to work it by themselves.) We didn’t hear a peep for the next hour and a half that we were awake downstairs. We cleaned up the kitchen, checked emails and even started talking about next week’s Sunday School lesson. As we came upstairs, Josh went down to their room to make sure they were covered up, and he found two little girls sitting on the bed together watching a movie!!!!! VERY QUIETLY!
Once they figured out that we weren’t mad, they just kept on watching their movie. I asked Molly who found the DVD player…she said, “I heard something coming from over there, and I found it already playing.” Basically, I plugged in the DVD player to charge it up for the next day and didn’t realize it was still “on.” So, it started playing after we left the room, and they decided to go ahead and open it and watch the movie…quietly…and super-close to the screen. I don’t begin to suggest that Josh is a bad influence on our kids with the fast food and movies, but…..
He does love a good movie. And I love him.
Also, just a note. Molly slobbers. That is why her hair is disgusting in these pictures. She sleeps on her tummy with her fingers in her mouth and slobbers all over the place. When it is time for bed, she asks, “Can I slobber?” She smells gross the next morning…her face, her hands, her hair, her sheets…and when I went to sit on my chair in their room, I felt something wet.
So, I will be hiding the DVD player in a better place from now on. Funny girls!
