Mary, I love your blog! I left my job to take care of my two youngest grandchildren while their mother works (part time). My colleagues thought I was nuts, but I LOVE my new job. There's nothing like being with and shaping your own children (or grandchildren). And yes, the aquarium is a wonderful way to spend time with your kids. I should look into that for my little ones. What a thoughtful gift from that grandmother. I'll be back.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Tish! I LOVE my new job too. What a great opporunity for you and your grandchildren. They will have wonderful memories of their grandma and their childhood.


hi mary, i'm Mary too. :) I'd love to have a Acquarium here to take the boys to. As for TV? we don't have any reception at all. We cancelled Cable 2yrs ago now, and then everything went digital so now we get nothing. The boys are outside more, they read more and they play more. I hope your girls enjoy their outside time as much as my boys. thanks for reading Kyooty today.

Thanks for visiting and commenting Mary! Funny, one of the things we did to prepare for our big pay cut was drop our cable down to $11.00 per month. I must admit I still watch "Dancing with the Stars" and "The Biggest Loser" at night after I put the kids to bed. However, I do make myself ride the eliptical when I am watching TV. My girls have not missed it at all, they are too busy with their many adventures.


We don't have tv either. No reception at all. We love it!
When we moved to NE we told the boys "they don't have tv here"
They fell for it.
Steven and I find we have a lot more time to read now that we don't have tv.
your friend,

Yes, it is amazing the time drain of TV . Speaking of reading, I just started a book written by Kimberely Hahn entitled "Graced and Gifted". I must admit I am only on page 10, but so far so good. It is inspired by the 31st chapter in Proverbs, and it's about running an organized home. I need all the help I can get!


Experiences are what create the memories anyway. I'm with you 100%. If you ever want them to "experience" Baltimore, let me know! ha ha

Thanks Claire, I hear Baltimore has a wonderful aquarium! We may take you up on that one day when everyone is potty trained!

I so agree w/you on this one--it is one of my big things too! I would rather spend any extra money on experiences than things...extra benefit of having less clutter, too!
What a really nice photo of you guys!


I am loving this flash back. :) We got the cable back this January, it was a long hard winter but still we would love to have the boys outside more.
I was glancing at a show today about how kids need to get out more nad do more because in the last 30years? I wish I could find the link.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nature_deficit_disorder I found it!!!! :)


100% agree!
No TV for my girls. They spend a lot of time with each other and friends and read more.
We love taking them places and travel together.

Thanks for the link, Kyooty!
