storyteller and all-around creative distraction

by request, a new entry

Hey, so I guess it’s been a little while. Now if only I could get Meaghan and Christine on my ass about getting my real writing done 😉

Five weeks ago I wrote about plans and schedules. All I’d like to say about that now is, HOW RIDICULOUS! Why didn’t someone tell me? There is no scheduling a 3 month-old baby! He’ll do the same thing for about a week, and just when I start to think, “Okay, I can work with this,” BAM, he switches it all up. One week he’s sleeping through the night, and I have a two hour nap to work with every morning – the next week, he’s eating twice in the night and I’m napping with him until noon.

So you just go with it, I guess. Whatever “it” is at the moment.

Tell me what you think about this then… a Cornell study theorizes that TV could be a possible cause of autism? I find that a little scary. I never put Dylan down to watch TV, but I usually have it on for background noise, and I find it hard to keep him from watching it. He likes the commercials especially, which is disturbing enough on its own! I’m hardly about to throw my TV out the window or anything, but it sure does give me a little bit of worry when I find him vegged out at the screen.
