Lately, Alex’s favorite activity is to kick back in his favorite chair and watch television. In fact, he’s not just laid back, he’s way-far laid back. Chillin’ and relaxin’ at the same time, which results in an extreme state of contentedness.

So content is he, in fact, that I could sketch this picture while he sat there motionlessly watching his favorite show:

Alex Color Sketch

I didn’t really sketch the picture. But I did have time to get up from the couch, walk to the office, get the camera, and walk back to the living room, focus, frame, and snap the picture of my kid as he sat there oblivious to everything except DJ Lance and the kooky looking monsters magically brought to life with the words, “Yo Gabba Gabba.”

The boys absolutely love the Disney/Pixar movie, “Cars”…

They’ll sit and watch the entire movie; it’s the only thing they’ll sit still for for any length of time.

Watching Cars

Hey, NASCAR racing starts this week! Wonder what the boys will think of watching real-life “Cars”??

( One can only hope )

…Dead or Alive!

Wanted Dead or Alive It’s another Friday night, and me and the boys are in the basement chillin’ out. I’m sitting on the couch watching the toob while Alex and Adam play on their Little Tikes slide. I’ve had enough news for one day and ain’t really into another episode of The King of Queens, so I put on a great classic western: Wanted Dead or Alive with Steve McQueen.

The dvd starts spinning and the show begins. The intro trails off into the 15-second opening where the camera pans away from the sawed-off Winchester on McQueen’s leg, as he walks to the board in front of the sheriff’s office and pulls off a wanted poster. As the theme music begins, the boys turn their heads and point at the screen, then run over to the couch and climb up into my lap. They actually sit and watch a good portion of the show with me, talking and pointing.

It’s pretty interesting, really, that of all the things on TV, both network and dvd, that we’ve put on for the boys, they’d find this late 1950’s black-and-white television series the most appealing.

Are they my kids or what? 😉
