The Boy and The Girl are fixated with what we have come to affectionately name The Flashy Box. When it is on, neither child will move. The house can burn down around them but as long as that Flashy Box is on, all is well. And - when they're grounded? Oh, my! Life as we know it comes to a screeching halt.
One of the many drawbacks of the Flashy Box is commercials. As much as I dislike commercials, the kids love them. The Girl is especially fond of them. Her favorite commercials are the Guinness ones. Our work as parents is done. The best part? She calls it "Genius" beer.
