Grouch Bath Time

Many hours of preparation, reading, wiring and money have been spent trying to obtain a copy of Sesame Street Episode 3811: Grouch Bath Time. We don't know why, but this is the only show (and only episode of that show) that Kaitlyn will watch. As of midnight November 6th, it was no longer going to be available on ON DEMAND; and there is no copy of this episode for sale anywhere!

After debating the rental of a DVD Recorder or the purchase of one, Grammie, Katie and I took a trip to Thomasville to buy one from a guy off of craigslist. Then, 5 hours of my day on Nov. 6th was dedicated to wiring, re-wiring, going to Wal-Mart for new DVD-RWs, reading the downloaded instruction manual, and attempting to record the hour long show 3 times. (I couldn't get the sound to record to save my life.) Then, Jake came home and had it working within an hour.

So, we have successfully recorded the only thing that gives me an hour of peace each day. In fact, we made 2 copies so that we could stash one in our fire proof box.

I could be wrong on this, because kids are kids, but I think it will get better. Her horizons will widen and you will be worrying about her watching too much tv! Congrats on getting the video.
