I’ll be bold and admit that I’ve been known once or twice (har, har) to sit my kids down in front of a television so I can get some stuff done. Sure, there are better and more educational ways for the kids to stay occupied while I’m cleaning up or writing, but sometimes it’s worth the fact that it is no hassle to pop in the Cars DVD and enjoy two glorious hours of uninterrupted silence.
So, to win the Shrek 3 DVD so you can sit your kids down for 2 glorious hassle-free, clean-up free hours of uninterrupted silence, or if you just want to see one of the two movies I saw in a theater this year, here’s what you have to do:
Make a post on your blog (linkbacks are appreciated, so we can spread the word) telling us what you do to keep the kids busy while you get things done other than sitting them down in front of the television. Admitting you do sometimes sit the kids in front of the TV gets you bonus points. (I don’t want to be the only one, here, who uses the electronic babysitter!) Link us to your blog post in the comments here so we don’t miss a single entry!
If you don’t have a blog, you can still participate- leave a comment on this post about what you do to keep the kids busy.
If you don’t have kids, you can still participate! Tell us what you would do, if you had kids. Extra super bonus points for people that don’t have kids that admit they probably would sit their future (or imaginary, if you plan to never have kids) kids down in front of the TV sometimes. Or tell us what you do to keep your kitties busy so you can get things done. Or your dogs. Or your ferrets. Or the imaginary people inside your head that keep driving you nuts when you have things to do. (Oh, that’s just me that has that problem? Ay yi yi.)
Deadline for the contest is Monday, January 7th at 11 PM central standard time. Good luck!
