The British are Coming!

This weekend we found out that Ben loves Shaun the Sheep . Like Bob the Builder, it is a British show for children. Luckily the other boys seem to enjoy Shaun the Sheep too. Sean calls it "my sheep." And Logan is just happy it's not Bob. And with Ben's love for British humor, we may try Kipper next...

Special Exposure Wednesday: Guilty Pleasures

Perhaps I have mentioned before that Ben loves Bob the Builder. This photo captures Ben watching his new "Bob" video from Santa on Christmas Day while we opened presents, something he does not particularly enjoy. It was our way to involve Ben in something he likes and be with us at the same time. Rather than feel guilty and sad about Ben not participating in Christmas morning activities in the traditional way, we tried this innovative approach - and it worked well for the whole family.
