Obsess Much?

17 Jan

Is it bad to make your child to go to sleep just so you can start watching a horribly brainless/addictive television show?  She kept saying, “but I’m not tired Momma” and I acted like I didn’t even hear it, “ok, night-night now. I love you. See you tomorrow.”  I then closed the door, ran to the kitchen, grabbed the Chinese food we ordered just for this special night, got situated downstairs and hit play.

I’m not just like this with “American Idol.”  I just really love television and movies.  I haven’t been falling asleep until like 5 in the morning because I’m just going from channel to channel.  It gets really bad when the music channels actually play music videos (around 4 am – 6 am) because then I just flip back and forth between them so I can see all the videos.  Andrew things I’m crazy but I just can’t fall asleep – I think it’s because it’s the only time I have to do what I love to do.

I guess there are worse things to enjoy.  I just have to chill out on rushing the kids to bed – I mean we were even recording it!   For the next t.v. show premiere, I’ll at least give Nia the chance to get in her bed before I turn the lights out and shut the door.  (I’m totally kidding, mom!)

    When I was a kid, we always knew it was bedtime when we heard the theme music for Hill Street Blues. And back then the bedtime was strict because there wasn't a VCR or a TiVo to record it!
