Television and Giant Mushrooms

My kids don’t watch what I’d consider a lot of television.? In fact, many times, I wish they would spend more time watching TV.

But this weekend, Thing 2 really wanted to watch movies.? Finally, SuburbanMommy gave him the old parenting line: If you watch too much TV, your brain will turn to mush.

He didn’t seem to grasp the concept of brains or mush, and didn’t make much of it.? Then, a few hours later, while we were eating lunch, we were talking about what Thing 1 and Thing 2 would do during “quiet time”.?? That’s what we call the time on weekends after lunch when Thing 3 naps and we attempt to have some quiet.

So Thing 2 says,? We can’t watch a movie during quiet time, because it will turn the TV into a giant mushroom.
