A very important day in the life of Mr. Nick.
to use the..... (wait for it...)
Okay, now that just doesn't sound that impressive to you, maybe? Big deal, you say? Well, stop and think about it. Aside from the fact that I AM EXCITED to not have stop and turn the TV on for him anymore, he's a future MAN. Men and remotes.... like peanut butter and chocolate, right? SO here's how it happened. Nick comes in and asks if he can watch TV. Sure, I say, go get mommy the remote (nothing new here).
Nick disappears, goes to look for the "car-mote" (because everything has a "ca" tacked onto the front of it, but that's another post) and then I hear, "IT WORKED!!! I pushed the ON butt-ton, and it WORKED!!
You should have seen the excitement on his face. You should have seen the excitement on MY face! Now you can turn it on yourself!! Woo-hoo...!!
And then the realization, that, OH...My...GOSH... he can read which one is the ON button!! WOO-HOO!!!! Way to go Nick-O!! It really is the little things that get us moms excited.
And now I can say, when he's all grown up and channel surfing away, that THIS was the day you learned how to use the "car-mote".
Can't you just see him imagining all the future bliss of flipping from one football game to the next?
