My son doesn’t watch a ton of TV or movies compared to my childhood days. I remember spending hours after school watching one show after another. We only had three channels at that time so I am amazed how much screen time we actually got. Granted, TV was still a novelty then…and the VCR wasn’t even invented until I was five. Sigh…
These days I’m grateful for the ability to pick and choose what we watch on the boob tube. Some days it’s just what we need to keep our sanity when OLM is bouncing off the walls. And while that might be good exercise for him, it can drive us bonkers. So we try to plan his screen time AFTER getting outdoors in the fresh air, riding our bikes, getting to the pool and spending time with friends and generally burning off that excess energy that comes with being a five-year old. The hubs and I don’t have that problem.
I received a copy of THE SEVENTH DWARF, the highly anticipated CG-animated motion picture to review and I think it’s going to be a staple in this household. I’ve been looking for something to replace *ahem* Fr*zen as I don’t think I can stand it much longer. Our little man is a prolific storyteller. He takes a story and changes it to make his own. I think that’s why he loves The Seventh Dwarf as it is the perfect mashup of many of our favourite story books and provides a lot of material to draw from.
Watch out Norm Macdonald!
