Can Baby Einstein count as a family home evening lesson?

I think if anything can make them sit nicely like that together is should count! Look at that quality sibling time they are getting! Your kids are so dang cute!

Yes! They look so cute!!

Sarah said...

Wow ~ I would be playing that thing all day long if they sat there and watched so intently like that!

What this picture doesn't reflect is the fact that we repositioned the two little girls 3 or 4 times before we got a good picture. And if I remember correctly everyone except Aiden was gone within 5 minutes and he proceeded to color all over the screen with black crayon. This event queued Dad's belittling remarks to make Aiden feel lousy about his actions. Last night would be more acurately described as Family Torment Night.

I wish I could have participated in Family Torment Night. I would choose being tormented with the Jensen Hoard over any other activity I can think of. I am excited for October 9th!

They actually aren't watching Baby Einstein. We found this unmarked VHS with a bunch of wierd images. We heard that bad things happen 7 days after you watch it so we thought we would see what happened if the kids watched it....

LOL! I'm still laughing at your last comment! We'll have to see how you're all doing in a week.

Such a cute picture! I love how close everyone is sitting to the TV.

In this case a picture really is worth a thousand words! Trent your so funny!

I would have to say yes. I don't know how you do it! I have only 1 set of twins and feel like pulling my hair out all the time. Bless your heart. Anything to get some quiet time is just what every mother needs

i'm glad to know that i am not the only one who repositions kids for pictures.

and, trent, your belittling words must work, because, just for you, i am no longer private. (btw, if you believe my reasoning, talk to your wife about our conversation and deflate your head a bit)

It does in our house!
