Well, I can't believe that it finally happened, but we are now posting our 1000th post on the LandLife Blog! Some of you have been reading since the very first post and some of you we picked up during our adoption process. I know that some of you might not have discovered the blog until after Reed was home.
So, before I go any further, please take a moment to leave a comment and tell us how long you've been reading and why you keep on "reed"ing, like we don't know!
So, I know that most of you have read my feelings about DVD-addicted children who seem to think getting in the car in synonymous with watching an episode of Dora. Well, we have resisted the DVD player up to this point, but we have relented and given Lola permission to buy Reed a DVD player for Christmas (don't tell Reed, it would ruin the surprise).
We did have the stipulation that it had to be removable so that we didn't have to have it in the van while we weren't traveling.
Since we're in the mood for breaking the rules, we have indulged Reed in a limited amount of television time. Actually, I realized that his beloved Elmo can be seen on "Sesame Street" on-demand for free.
Of course, this sudden change in events has taken us all, including Reed, by surprise.
Thankfully, Reed doesn't seem to be overly interested in television. We're hoping that this stays the case. A little bit of TV isn't bad, it's the addiction that I fear.
Reed was so shocked with our newfound "liberalness" with television that he texted Beeyull.
He seemed to take the news well, we told him that we would not be buying him a cell phone until his 16th birthday, despite the fact that he has been asking for one.
So, here it is the end of our 1000th post, and for whatever reason you follow us, we are thankful. We love sharing our lives with you!
