When our daughter Samantha was 4 years old, we did an evil, evil thing: we put a little tv in her room. She had chronic ear infections (almost constantly), and tv was all that would help her sometimes. Our whole family was exhausted and at our wits end and frankly, there were times I desperately needed a break.
Well, now that she's 6 and isn't sick all the time, we've decided it's high time to remove it. I mentioned this to her as I was snugging with her at bedtime. I told her we were going to take the tv out. She sorta complained a bit, not bad. I said, "You're going to have to play with your toys and color and stuff more." Since her toys are pretty pathetic lately, I asked her if there's anything she'd like us to get for her room.
She said, "Yeah. A pool and a hot tub."
