When Grant was about one month old, we bought an XBox 360 with the Kinect. Jeremy was of course super excited about this purchase. I really did not have feelings about it one way or the other. Video games entertain me for about five minutes and then I am bored, with the exceptions of Mario Kart and Mario Brothers on Nintendo 64. When we got the XBox home and set up I was surprised to find out it had some impressive features that are beneficial to have with an infant!
Jeremy approached me with an idea in January of this year. Usually his ideas involve saving money in one way or another and this one was no different. (Our cable bill was nearly $80 a month!) He said, “what do you think about getting rid of cable?” My first though was it is going to be horrible and boring! Somehow he talked me into it and we got rid of it a few days before our son was born. We decided to try Hulu Plus instead and just a few weeks ago we subscribed for the one month free trial of Netfilx. It has been been an adjustment not being able to flick on the T.V. and watch something live like the news or more importantly to me, the FoodNetwork! However, both Hulu Plus and Netflix have great benefits and some down falls as well.
