A Little Cooped Up
We're finding ourselves very cooped up these days. Eli has been battling a really bad chest cold for a few days and taking him out (even outside) hasn't been an option for us, creating some really bad cabin fever.
I always said I wouldn't be that mom...the one that gives her child soda, or candy...or God forbid chicken nuggets (I'd actually rather give my kid candy!)...but there have been the times when I just caved...and ya know what?
It wasn't so bad.
Today I let him play a video game to pass some time, another one of those "I swore I'd nevers"...and he loved it.
I honestly think it is all in moderation and of course censoring what it is he gets to play. I am so strict about his TV shows and the same goes for the games. I want to raise a child who loves the outdoors, dirt and diving into nature hands on. But sometimes that just isn't an option.
That is when I am grateful for TV and video games....because on occasion...
It isn't so bad.
