We don't have cable, we don't own a gaming system and we don't have toys streaming out of our kids room at the Little Blue Bungalow. Behind the times you may ask? Not really. (If you ask my hubby and I.) Instead we are very intentional about the time we give our kids. What we do provide as parents are lots of one-on-one attention, real-life learning experiences, and exploration of the world around us.
So...when I find my kids simply watching pizza bake in the oven like it is the best Super Bowl ever. (Seriously.) I have to stand back and evaluate the situation.
Are they that bored? Is there a joke I missed here? Or are they just enjoying the simple pleasures of life...anticipation of a good lunch?
I prefer the latter. Maybe we should all just slow down and watch pizza bake...waiting on the simple pleasures of life.
