This weekend we watched more television in two days then we usually watch in one week. While I don’t believe conference qualifies as “watching television”; to Megan, who doesn’t know any different, it must have been strange to have mom and dad spend much of the day in front of the TV.
Megan has no real interest in television programs. There is one show that she really enjoys (Pocoyo) but we watch that through netflix and each episode is only seven minutes long. I was certain that we would have a hard time keeping Megan “entertained” during conference and that it would also hinder our ability and desire to sit and listen.
I am happy to say that Megan’s behavior pleasantly surprised us. We planned several activities to keep her occupied, but she also seemed to tune in occasionally. She would often repeat sentences she heard, and she would always refer to President Monson as the prophet (and then ask if we could sing “Follow the Prophet.”) Each time a song began, and the organ was shown, she would run to our piano and play along.
During the Saturday sessions, Megan read books, colored, played with blocks and her dolls:
On Sunday she spent the entire first session doing puzzles (for the ENTIRE two hours!) And spent most of the second session playing with play-doh and blocks:
How wonderful that Megan wasn’t a distraction and that both Adam and I were able to listen the entire time. She is such a sweetheart. We are so blessed to have her in our life.
