Just Sit Down!

Do your kids sit on the couch when they watch Television? The reason I ask is because mine don't. They do everything but sit quietly on the couch.

...doing head stands, laying upside down, standing in the middle of the room, spinning in circles, on top of a dog, on top each other!

*the reason for all the orange attire? Our favorite college football team
The Clemson Tigers kick off in 13 days! We're a very prepared family :)

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

Yaya said...

Lol!

Go orange!

Yup, the kids I nanny for are the same way. I say when they watch tv that it's their workout.

Par for the course around here, even during our bedtime stories, they're hanging upside down.

I've got 8 yr old Delaney doing routines on her balance beam (it folds & she puts it on the living room floor), handstands, cartwheels & running roundoffs. And then there's 18 mo old Jake putting his "ball-ball"s into the hoop constantly. And I always thought TV was an excuse to veg out on the couch!

Happy VGNO! Stopping by late again....

When Tara was younger she never just sat... for anything, even dinner was on the run. The dog looks thrilled..... Please don't jump on me!!!!

Definitely not alone on this one! My kiddos use the couch like it's a trampoline!

They are so darling!
Kids are so funny they seem to be able to stand, sit, sleep, relax in just about any position and be comfortable!
Love the orange :D

P.S. I like your new profile picture!

mine no longer watch "tv" so when they watch movies? sometimes they lay on the floor sometimes they are laying across the sofa and other times they are in another room playing cars?

That looks just like my kids and it drives me crazy. I would be so happy if they would sit and watch for just a few minutes.

LM can't sit still for the life of him but BG could be a regular couch potato at times, lol. Too funny.

Sarah said...

i don't have kids yet but I very clearly remember figiting as a child..headstand and all!

this blessed nest said...

depends on what is on at the moment. most of the time, he is jumping wanting attention & the tv all to himself. other times, he will be still. that is when i run & get as much done as possible! it is only for 5 - 10 mintues max. if i'm lucky.
have a great week!

kimert said...

Seriously!!!! I have the same issue with my kids. They never sit down!! When even watching a movie (HSM, Hannah Montana) little miss Annabelle is up dancing around and singing.

Kelly said...

LOL, they are cute! Mine was some of both, she could be quite happy lounging on the sofa (or floor) and calmly watching tv or videos. Other times she would be doing handstands, practicing synchro or dance...at 20 she leans towards chillin' but also takes the time to do crunches etc!!

Kristina P. said...

I guess they are getting some good exercise!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Football family?? Good stuff!!!

Bella is usually ok, unless, or should I say until, there's music. Then she goes nutz!!!! She couldn't sit still then if her life depended on it, lol!

underthebigbluesky said...

Hahaha! Must be the age. I can't get my 12 year old to move off the couch when the tv is on!

Debbie said...

Looks like they are not going to be couch potatoes! Good for them:)

That's not a bad thing. It means they're moving, burning some calories, and are in no danger of gaining a pound, if that helps you look at things differently.
