I work. A lot. Sometimes my house is a whirlwind of homework papers, corndogs and laundry. Sometimes we just can’t plan our evenings; it depends on who has a piano lesson, who has to work late and who gets ready for bed on time. Still, we always find time for Girls Night (My daughters have decided this also includes my husband, even if he is a boy.). It’s our time to forget the chaos and settle in to an evening of TV as a family.
Kids' (and Grown Ups') Favorites
With Kids On Demand, we can pick any kids shows we want, when we want. We pop some corn and click Channel 1 for Austin & Ally, just one of a variety of Disney Channel’s best shows. If it’s my turn to pick, we watch Fraggle Rock (my favorite show when I was seven), courtesy of The Hub. Sara is five, and she loves Nick Jr. for Olivia and Sprout for Berenstain Bears. My almost-nine-year-old-I-can’t-wait-for-my-birthday-party Emma usually goes for Victorious or Winx Club on Nickelodeon. That button is also the home of my husband’s favorite cartoon, Kung Fu Panda. I’ve never seen a guy so excited about a talking bear.vorites
No More "What's On?"
When I ask my kids what they want to watch, I routinely get the question, “What’s on?” I simply tell them, “Whatever you want. Just press 1.” And since the programs always change, the kiddos are assured of always finding something new.
It’s a chaotic world, and I don’t always know what we’re having for dinner, where your library books are or what happened to your left shoe. With On Demand Kids, though, I’m always in control. Bring on Girls Night. I’ll get to the laundry later.
