This post is totally random . . . and honestly, I think I might have done a post a lot like this before. After 5 1/2 years of blogging, I'm bound to get repetitive.
When I was nursing Claire the other day, I was thinking about how I'll always associate certain television shows with each of my children. There were particular things that I watched a lot of through their first few months, mainly during the time I spent nursing them.
Jack was born during the summer, which meant network re-runs. However, we still had cable back then, so I watched a lot of home improvement shows. Flip That House, Designed to Sell, etc. Oh, and Last Comic Standing. Also, VH1's Best Week Ever . . . I loved that show. I remember watching 16 and pregnant, too, and thinking about how lucky Jack was to have me.
After having a child during re-runs, I decided that planning to have Ben during network sweeps was the best decision*, so we had him in September. Glee came out that year, so I watched a lot of that show. Of course, I had a toddler at that point, so I spent the overnight nursing sessions working through my tivo lineup. I also watched all of the Grey's Anatomy seasons that had aired up to that point.
With Claire, I watched all of Downton Abbey and Madmen. Because of this, ]I fear she's developing a British accent and a smoker's cough.
I'll also associate certain foods with each of them. When I was pregnant with Jack, I couldn't get enough of McDonald's french fries. With Ben, Fazoli's cookies were my favorite. And with Claire . . . pop tarts and Ghiradelli chocolates.
Random, I know. But as they're getting older and I'm forgetting these things and I need to get them down!
*Kidding, kidding. We didn't really plan to have Ben during network sweeps.
