This weekend I watched the entire second season (24 episodes) of the ABC show Lost. I had watched the first season last fall while the second season was on tv, so I had to see the second season before season three starts in October.
I watch too much television...and the Tivo makes it too easy. I am feeling just gitty this week that some of the new seasons start, with my favorite, Grey's Anatomy premeiring on Thursday night at 8pm! The other shows scheduled on my Tivo for this season are One Tree Hill, The Office, Desparate Housewives, Real World, Laguna Beach, 2-A-Days, The Biggest Loser, The Bachelor, American Idol, and new shows 6 Degrees, Studio 60, Friday Night Lights, and Smith.

Should you force your child to play a sport? Most parents I discuss this with would unequivocally say "NO"! (I have visions of a few of the little rookie hockey players who spend most of their time rolling around on the ice while their dad looks on with stars in his eyes hoping to live out the dream through his son.) However, with our youngest child, we have chosen to go against the advice of others and force Kennedy to play soccer. Her first practice was this week. You know it is not going well if you have to threaten your child with a spanking just to get them in the car to go to practice! This child however, if left to her own desires, would spend most hours of her childhood happily passing time in front of the television.
Good news, she said she thought practice was "kind of fun" and almost sounded excited when she told me that the coach said she had a big game on Saturday. Looks like our attempt to "know better" might turn out okay. I'll keep you posted.
