Question of the Week - Guilty TV Pleasure

Well, I hear the writer's strike is over. That means that TV will be back soon! I'm really happy about that, but I have to say that the writer's strike gave me time to catch up on my DVR recordings. I don't have much time to watch a lot of TV lately (I wonder why). When I have any free time, I typically spend it on the computer or reading. But I record a bunch of TV shows, most of which Londo watches with me usually after the Pumpkin goes to bed.

There are some shows I record that he has no interest in whatsoever. There are some shows which I am a bit embarrassed to admit I really enjoy. These are the shows that sit on the DVR for long periods of time, for the rare times when I am free to watch TV but not with Londo. I am slow to catch up on these shows, and some I just have to delete because I run out of room on the DVR.

So, the question of the week is:

What TV show to you like that you are a bit embarrassed to admit you even watch?

I'll tell you mine. It's Kyle XY. That's right, me and the pre-teen girls love the show. Londo has even seen some of them and admits it's a decent show. You know, for an ABC Family type of show. I also love Army Wives on Lifetime, but that's been in hiatus.

Your turn to fess up. What's your guilty TV pleasure?

Speaking of TV, check out the new quote at the bottom of the page. It happens to be one of Londo's (my hubby's) favorite quotes.

I'm not ashamed; I love the trash that is Rock of Love on VH1. It's absolute trash, but it's good trash.

The E! True Hollywood Story. And heaven help me if I stumble upon a 2 p.m. Lifetime Original Movie -- why am I unable to resist this?

I watch Kyle too, so does the Hubby. But I don't feel ashamed about it. Actually, he likes that show more than I do.

Now The Girls Next Door....that shames me.

I used to watch the reality TV on MTV but a couple years ago we turned the extended cable off so I wouldn't even be tempted! I think I am smarter for it, haha. But I found a replacement :-) We still have TLC and Discovery Health so, I like any show that has to do with babies or houses. Jon and Kate Plus 8 is my favorite!

I have been keeping up with Puff Daddy, Making The Band, ha! I love Celebrity Rehab, and Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant. Don't tell. Peace!

Oh, and I love Jon & Kate Plus Eight too. :)

Shoot, I meant to put this in my last comment ...

becomingmommy -- I'm with ya on the Girls Next Door. Why is it so fascinating for me? I dunno. Maybe I just wish I could have a mansion where my animals are taken care of by other people? Maybe it's the costume parties they have all of the time where they get to spend lavishly on bizarre outfits? It's definitely NOT the old man penis part! LOL!

Project Runway and Top Chef on Bravo seem like high quality fare in comparison to my latest guilty pleasure, Celebrity Rehab on VH1. Talk about witnessing a train wreck...and not being able to look away...

I am also intrigued by/frightened by the MTV Sweet Sixteen show. These are some of the wealthiest kids in America, so therefore the people who are going to be running the show in 30-40 years. Holy hell.

Lost, and I'm so lost right now. And I love John and Kate plus 8 on Discovery.

We tend to watch a lot of reality tv which is basically all a guilty pleasure. My latest ones though are The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo and the soon to premiere Real Housewives of NYC. Total crap both of them but I like a little mindless entertainment here and there.

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
