TV time without distractions
me: Are you ready to watch the movie?
me: Put your phone in the kitchen please.
Jack: I’m not using it.
me: I don’t want us to be distracted. Put it in there.
Jack: Look, it’s on the ottoman.
me: Jack: Put it in the other room please.
Jack: I’m not looking at it!
me: Put it away. Now.
Jack: I put this pillow on it look what’s the big deal.
me: Because it beeps and you jump to answer it. Put. It. Away. Now.
Jack: That’s not fairrrrrr!
me: We are not watching a movie until you put it away. Just put it over behind you on the table sheesh Jack!
Jack: Ughhhh so unfairrrr! (He finally puts it away)
me: Thank you.
We watch the movie. About halfway through there’s this part about a calendar…
me: Oh we should totally look that up to see if it’s real! (I grab my phone)
Jack: (stare of death) Really. How nice that we aren’t being distracted by our phones.
