I say it’s DVD time.

I watch Good Morning America every morning, so that I have something to talk about other than the boys, crafts, and the blog.  (Of course, I talk about those too and I have to explain the blogger I’m speaking of every time I tell a story, which is probably another post entirely.)  The other day I was sitting, watching the news, eating my Rice Krispies. Tornado S came over and smiled at me.

Tornado S: Pirates!

Me: Not right now, Tornado S.  Later, at DVD time.

Tornado S walked over to our entertainment center.  He sat down underneath the TV and scanned the children’s DVDs on the shelf.  Then he pulled out a DVD.  He showed it to me.

Tornado S: Pirates!

Me: At DVD time.

He held a copy of The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything.  Tornado S stood up.  He pressed the eject button on the DVD player.  He removed the DVD that was in the player and placed it on the ground.  Then he opened up the DVD case and pulled out the DVD.  Carefully he placed the DVD into the player.  He pressed the eject button again, allowing the player to close.  He turned and smiled at me.

Tornado S: Pirates!  Arrr!

Then he sat down and waited for the movie to start.

Thank God he doesn’t know how to change the input.

    Those pirates are so demanding! LOL! I, on the other hand, cannot wait for my son to figure out how to use the digital cable so he can turn on his own damn TV in the morning and let me sleep! 😀

    Ugh, my oldest has learned how to work the remote & player. He has since taught the other 2 that are usually his partners in crime. Thankfully the baby is still unaware of how to work it, but I do see him giving it the eye.

    So cute.

    My kids love the remote control, but they don’t have clue one about how to work it. I plan to keep it this way for as long as possible.

    Ahhh… but when he DOES learn how to change the input? Your reason for having children will be fulfilled. You will no longer have to get up and change the channel/volume/etc when someone has once again lost/stolen/eaten the remote 🙂
    Whenever mine bitches about me asking him to do something like unload the dishwasher, take out the garbage, walk the dogs, find the remote… I remind him that THAT was my reason for having children.

    They learn the really important things so early these days, like dvd players, video games and of course the most important one, how to say Arrr!

    HAHAHA! This is familiar. We don’t have a TV, we have a media center PC. When the tower was on the floor, all my son had to do was get out the DVD and insert it, and our media player auto started the video. BIG problems. So now the tower is on top of the entertainment center.

    Hope it takes your boy a *long* time to figure out which buttons to press!

  7. Court Says:

    Sounds familiar. Except every time she tries to load it she gets it stuck and the tv makes this wounded duck sound.

  8. KathyB! Says:

    How long did he sit there before he figure out it wouldn’t work?!


  9. ck Says:

    That is so cute. (And smart and scary.) And now that I know how cute your kids are I can’t imagine how you say no!

  10. Gibby Says:

    The input will come soon, unfortunately. Strangely, Chuckles learned how to do it before her big sis. Funny, she’s never taught her big sis how to do it yet. Interesting…

    joz~ That’s not a bad idea. Too bad you have to turn on my box and tv.
    beth~ Don’t you hate it when they gang up on you?
    CFM~ Mine aren’t exactly clear about it either, but they’re trying to figure it out.
    Kay~ Some one to help find the remote instead of just loosing it? Awesome!
    insider~ Arrr! Check.
    Lindsey~ That seemed too easy. Luckily the tv buttons are on the side.
    Court~ I don’t think the wounded duck sound is a good thing.
    KathyB!~ About two minutes and then he turned and asked Pirates?
    ck~ I babysat a lot of cute kids. I’m cute proofed.
    Gibby~ Chuckles has all the power.

    That is a hilarious story.. kids just do what they want! I was a summer camp counsellor at a zoo last year, and I’m too much of a sucker, and not their mom, so I like to spoil them! (Can’t imagine how Ill be years down the line as a grandma!!)

    Here’s a suggestion for DVD time… We have ocean-environment education dvds with real footage from around the world. Kids will learn things about the ocean that I didn’t even know until recently!! Check them out, they’re really great.
