In spite of the fact that we don't watch TV, our house is still "the place to be" for the kids in the neighborhood this summer ! Right now, in addition to my 3, there are 4 other kids (aged 3, 6, 8, and 9) playing happily. There is a "store" under my stairs, a "toy shop" behind the big easy chair, and DS is showing one friend how to clean old pennies with ketchup ! There is no TV, not even any music on, yet everyone is happy and engaged. It's been this way all summer long. I only have 2 rules ~ all food stays in the kitchen, and no excluding anyone for any reason. See.... kids don't need TV to have a great time! Left to their own devices, it's amazing what they will come up with .

~~Kristina~~ Mama to DS(10/30/01), DD1(VBAC 3/28/04) and DD2(HBAC 5/21/06)

Awww, sounds great!

Actually, sounds like my house! LOL
We always seem to end up with multiple children here.

It's the vinegar in the ketchup. It removes tarnish.
