Quiet time

I'm all for incorporating music into our day.  And my daughter will watch a little TV spaced out throughout the day.  But I've decided in this stimulated (and often over stimulated) world that sometimes we need a quiet house.  No music, no TV, nothing to distract for an hour or more.  I sometimes have to force it, but other times it just happens.  The result is that my daughter will find herself playing and imagining all sorts of new ideas (I know because she never stops talking -- never).  I find that it is valuable time and necessary.

I struggle with quiet time. Every since my little one was born, I have always needed to have the tv or radio on during our awake hours.

It's only recently that I have realised the value of quiet time. But I am still finding it very hard to do! So glad to have someone else reinforce the concept.
