No News, Good NewsPosted: April 19, 2013
Dear Chace & Harper,
This has been one crazy week. I have to admit I am usually the last to know what is going on in the world because I do not have the tv on during the day and never listen to the news on the radio. I make a conscious effort to not have the tv on because then Chace will want to watch something or I will get distracted and watch something. It just works better for us for it to remain off until after you both are fast asleep. I don’t even turn it on during naps because I never know how long they will be. I just prefer to wait until nighttime when you are both down and out for the night. Then I watch my shows uninterrupted (hopefully).
So how do I find out what is going on? Well, honestly it’s either I read it on the Internet (yep I am on the computer or my phone while you both are napping) or I get a text or call from daddy or Momo with an update on breaking news.
While I think it’s important to know what is going on, I also know I don’t want either one of you exposed to what is being said on the news. It scares me, so it can’t be good for either of you. Just another ‘mommy decision’ and I’m sticking with it. When you are older and have questions, then we can talk about it, but right now it’s not necessary for you to know how crazy our world is at times.
I’m hoping that some good news comes our way soon!
