Grumblings of a Couch Potato

This evening after dinner I shooed Scott and the girls outside to run off a little energy before bedtime. I noticed that only 3 of the 4 girls went out initially. A few minutes later when I set about straightening up the house I noticed Sarah was sitting in the middle of the living room floor zoned into the television... Wow Wow Wubbzy or some equally intellectually stimulating Noggin show was on. Ugh!

I instructed her to march her little bootie outside to play with Daddy and all the other girls before she became a couch potato. She hopped up, turned off the tube, and went to put her shoes on without complaint.

However, as she was on her way out the door I distinctly heard her mumble to herself, "This had better be fun!"

Your girls always make me laugh! They are just too cute. Julianna says the funny stuff around here and yet I miss most of it :)

Thanks for sharing and glad you all are doing well!

That is so funny! Isn't it wonderful to have your husband home to shoo the kids outside to play with while you stay inside and clean up?? I don't know how you did it without him!
