During the middle of the night, when Olivia wakes me up to nurse, I always turn the TV on. I did this when James was a baby too to try and help me stay awake. (It works the majority of the time)
Back in the summer of 2006-I was able to catch just about the whole A Different World series. It seemed like-no matter what time of the day or night I turned the television on, re-runs of this show were on. I never watched the series when it originally ran. I've always watched The Cosby Show and this show has a similar feel (and some of the same characters since it's a spin-off) but is a little more cheesy, predictable, and sometimes silly. I liked watching it because it was something different than what was on tv at the time.
As I wake up to feed the baby these nights-the re-runs that seem to be on all the time are for Roseanne. I used to watch this show when it originally ran and these nights when I'm turning the tv on-it's hit or miss as to whether I've seen the episode or not. So far, I've seen most of them. I really like the show though in terms of character development. Roseanne Barr and John Goodman do such a great job in role. It's impressive how well they portray the personas of a sometimes trashy, limited income family.
Although it's fun to be able to watch television all the time, I can't wait until Olivia is older and sleeping all the way through so I can also get some rest.
