We live about 15 minutes “from town” so we’re in the car a good bit. The rule of thumb is, if traveling for more than 30 minutes then the kids can watch a movie. Benji, Barbie, Pete’s Dragon, Mary Poppins, Cinderella, you name it- we got it. Mike had what I think was a great idea. He said, “why don’t we get them educational DVDs to watch?” Duh. Why don’t we?
I did some research and bought this School House Rocks DVD. Turns out, my kids watch it at school and have loved it owning it at home. Chances are you probably watched it growing up too- in the VHS version of course They even bring it inside to continue watching it. I’m raising some nerds here, folks.
Truth be told, Mama here needs the refresher course too. A conjunction? What’s that?
(psstt… it links words)
We also ordered this historical animated DVD by Liberty’s Kids which, yep, was a hit too. They couldn’t believe there was actually an event where tea was dumped overboard. While the novelty will eventually wear off, just like other movies, at least now we have shifted directions and can make better use of our endless driving time.
As Britton says, “nerds rule!”
