Network sweeps

I realized tonight that I haven't read out of a book (other than to look up quick reference information in our baby books) in five weeks. I haven't even been able to keep up with my "Your Baby's First Year, Week-by-Week" book. I need to start doing that again before my brain starts to rot from all of the television I'm watching . . . bad television.

I've decided that the best times of year to have a baby is right before network sweeps. I had no idea how much time I'd spend watching tv while I was nursing. For reasons most likely pertaining to my lack of coordination, I cannot read while nursing Jack, so the TV keeps me company while Kyle snores next to me. If this were sweeps time, I'd have a lot of great shows tivoed that I could watch during those long night feedings. E! specials, VH1 features, and re-runs of Law and Order & Full House just aren't cutting it anymore. I'm thinking about reinstating our subscription to netflix.

Speaking of nursing, I'm probably going to have to do that again pretty soon. I'm gonna try and get some sleep before Jack calls . . .
