Like most parents, I have days where my kids run around non-stop and sometimes I’m lucky if I get 30 minutes of peace and quiet. Even with just two kids it’s difficult to get both of them calmed down enough at the same time to enjoy some quiet time. But I have a few tricks up my sleeve that help me quiet them down.
One such trick is putting on a movie or one of their favorite TV shows. My kids will literally sit and watch their favorite movie on repeat 2-3 times. There may be moments during the movie where they have an outburst of energy, but for at least the first 30 minutes or so they are both calmed and quiet, allowing me to have a brief moment on sanity. Making time for sanity breaks is something I NEED daily.
Today was certainly no different. Sunday Funday consisted of the kids wrecking the house with their toys strewn all around, my boyfriend playing FIFA on one of the gaming systems, and me? Well I’ve been working, cooking and cleaning. Yea, not too much “fun” in my Sunday Funday. After listening to so much ruckus, it was time for my sanity break and today NCircle Entertainment came to my rescue.
I popped in our new DVD, Autumn Journey: Guess How Much I Love You, which we received courtesy of NCircle Entertainment. The kids were immediately calmed down and glued to the TV, enjoying Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends as they went on their various adventures.
Based on the classic picture book, Guess How Much I Love You, the six stories on this DVD follow the same loving characters on a few of their autumn adventures. Just as we are starting to get into the autumn season, all six stories are set against a backdrop of yellows, oranges and browns, encompassing a true autumn feel.
One of the episodes appropriately titled Autumn Journey, has Little Nutbrown Hare and Little Field Mouse on a new journey in which they’ve left a trail of acorns so they can later find their way back home. To their surprise, when they’re ready to head home they discover that Little Grey Squirrel has unknowingly collected their trail of acorns. But not to fear! By working together they’re able to find their way back to the meadow.
Each and every story ends with Little Nutbrown Hare saying to Big Nutbrown Hare, “Guess how much I love you.” Well, guess how much NCircle Entertainment loves you. Enough that they’re giving away a copy of Autumn Journey: Guess How Much I Love You to one lucky Making Time reader. That’s a lot of love! Enter to win using the giveaway entry form below.
