I was going to write another post about the writing craft. But, I’ve spent the evening wrestling with my kids for the computer, and well, I lost. I gave up.
My kids rarely watch TV. I have to coax them, literally bribe them to sit down and watch a whole movie. They can’t. They want to play, move, paint, build, anything. We have Wii games that are still in the package because they don’t care about them.
Do you know what got them locked onto the computer for the evening? Elmo. Yup, Elmo. From the 11/2 year-old to the 8-year-old – they were watching Elmo on YouTube – I’m Elmo and I know It. And my kids have never ever watched Elmo.
I’m fighting Elmo. Fighting him off my computer so that I can write.
If you watch the video, I’d love to know of you laughed or not. I’ve been chuckling all night, Kids look at these crayons. Make art! I wasn’t writing, but at least I was laughing.
