We don't watch a lot of television in our home. Oliver watches even less than we do.

But sometimes...


when I need to cook dinner or just a quiet moment...


I'll set him up with my laptop so he can watch construction videos on YouTube...


like this one:


Sometimes.

We find "funny cats" videos for the boys. They like to giggle at the felines' silly antics. Also, we pull up Wikipedia articles on the major fauna of each of the continents. We'll have to try construction videos next time.

Brittanie said...

Oh, I love that little bit of quiet time. And my 2 year old girl loved that vid too. What is it about big vehicles and dirt?

Erin said...

That is a great idea! Nothing wrong with construction videos! I watch a lot of tv but my daughter would barley sit still for a show unless its emlo and even then its hard to get her to sit for longer then 5 minutes!

Creepy Mommy said...

That is just too cute! I was expecting Wubsy or something along those lines. Construction videos, priceless!

Chantelle said...

What a great picture! You should send that to MAC and they should use it as an advertisement :)

There's another photo floating around somewhere of him watching the guided tour of the iphone!

We're a mac family. What can I say?

Beth.. One Blessed Nana said...

He is just too adorable. Love it - you take great pictures!

Michelle said...

I feel the same way about TV but sometimes mommy needs a few minutes. Everything is OK in moderation especially if the content is monitored.

Tracy said...

Christine- we watch funny cat ones, too! lol.

Very cute pictures, Rae.

Googies Girl said...

He is such a cutie & those are great pictures of him! I agree, they could be used as a mac advertisement! I've never posted here before until now. I really love reading your blog! Your a great writer!

Kameron said...

My boy is obsessed with big trucks of any kind. I bet he would love those videos!

*AMY* said...

Those are very sweet pictures. YouTube does have some great videos don't they! My boy is into watching all of the baseball ones. They have training ones that show drills on how to improve your skills.

I also agree with Sarah. That chair is awesome. You've got great taste.

Holly said...

Linda said...

Raechel said...

Linda - Ha! Fair question!

It's actually slip-covered. And, yes, we find the need to wash them OFTEN! (There are two of them in that room). Thank you, IKEA!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Ohhhh I will have to show this to Keeghan tomorrow! I bet he'll LOVE it! I have a feeling he and Oliver would have a lot in common! LOL We're a Mac family too! :)

I forgot to mention the man who sings this song wrote it about his dad. His dad drove a JCB for 20 years and then gave it up and now runs a record label and he produced this song because no other record label would. The singer wrote it because when he was little he was bullied and his dad took him out in his JCB one day so he could get away from it. I think I heard he was homeschooled after that but I can't confirm it.
