I have a baby that's an addict -- yes, that's right -- a Baby Einstein addict! Cannon has been glued to those dvd's since he was about 2 months old. If I would let him, he seriously would watch one of those dvd's all day long! He has to watch one first thing in the morning, it's part of his routine. He then will watch it again around 3p.m. for about an hour. Sometimes, putting in one his shows is the only way I can get him to stop crying. I guess I don't entertain him enough by playing with him and his toys and reading books to him. Cannon has seen his same four Einstein dvd's so many times, I feel like I need to get him new ones when I go to the store. What do you think - should I break this habit and have an intervention? Or should I not really be concerned?

Today as I was in the kitchen, I saw the fortune cookie that has been sitting in there for the past two weeks or so. Curtis and I ordered Chinese takeout a while ago, and Curtis never unwrapped or ate his fortune cookie. I was kindof sick of it just sitting there so I decided I was going to break it to see what the fortune read. I didn't want the cookie part - just the message inside. I had a feeling it was going to be a good one, I could feel it, and sure enough I was right. It is a simple message that we always hear, but important to be reminded of. This is the message:


Boy, is that the truth. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we forget to "stop and smell the roses." I am enjoying the rain today. I am enjoying that I can see my flowers starting to come up - tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, etc. I am enjoying that spring is just around the corner - this Friday to be exact. I hope you stop and enjoy life today and everyday!!
