I’m headed off with Pep & the little guy for a little Labor Day road trip to Charlotte NC. It wouldn’t necessarily be the first place we’d choose for a vacation, but we’re really excited about going … 1- I’ve never been to Charlotte, NC (I don’t think) but 2 – we’re going to see some good friends!! They’ve lived in Charlotte for about 2 years now & we’ve never made the trip to see them, so it’s finally time! They also have a little girl that is about 1-1/2 so that will be fun to see the kiddos together.
I’ve stocked the DVD player with Bob Marley, Santana, Curious George & of course Stevie Ray Vaughn so the little guy should be content on the road!!
A little less than just 1 month ago you couldn’t pay my almost 2-year old Evan to sit still long enough to watch a commercial, much less any normal cartoon. While I’m glad he’s not a baby couch potato, there are certainly occassions where it’d be nice to have just a few minutes of ‘down time’ … i.e.: cooking, cleaning, folding clothes, etc. … you know all those times when you need to accomplish something.
We now have our ‘cartoon’! My husband put on a Stevie Ray Vaughann (he’s a guitar player, Staci) concert video for himself to watch … but who climbs up on the couch all by himself for a front-row seat … EVAN!!! He’s now hooked … probably a bit addicted. He wakes up wanting Stebie Way & goes to sleep wanting Stebie Way. Since the DVD is already skipping, we got a couple replacement Sansana (aka Santana) and Barley (aka Bob Marley) videos as well … they don’t carry the same weight as Stebie, but they’re good in a pinch!
