After dinner Lucy asked if we could watch a movie. And because we are raising total social lepers, the movie she wanted to watch was Ambient Fire.
What have we wrought?
My children don't ask to see Rocky & Bullwinkle, Wallace & Gromit or Henry & June. They want to watch a video-taped fire in a fireplace.
I put on the dvd and she picked the fireplace with the Christmas stockings. It's her favorite. And it comes with this awesome 80's electronica Christmas soundtrack. If you're good, you can get the music AND the authentic crackling sounds.
And then she asked me to pause it because she had to go potty.
