Today was our annual Watch-As-Much-TV-As-You-Want-Because-School-Is-About-To-Start-Day* but Strider chose to work a 12-hour shift at Chick Fil-A, starting at 5 am, instead. When I asked him why he wasn’t going to participate in the Big TV day, which used to be his favorite day of the year, he answered, “There’s more to life than TV, Mom.”
A very good corner has been turned.
Meanwhile, Jinna Rai kept walking around asking me why I wasn’t telling them to turn off the TV. I tried to explain the concept to her, and how they wouldn’t be watching much TV once school started, but she continued to look perplexed. J
