Scene: Soren and Dahlia are in the family room and I'm in the kitchen.
Soren: Does anyone have any spears?

Scene: Just after dinner Soren starts a conversation.
Soren: Mom, do you like to sit up in bed sometimes?
Me: Yeah.
Soren: They have these beds that fold up. . .

We didn't have TV for 3 and a half years and now it is so funny to see the power of advertisements and commercials through the mind of my son who hasn't been exposed to it before (and, let's face it, it's also alarming). He gets so excited to tell me what new thing he sees that I might like. He's so sincere about it.

Soren is so funny! My kids only watch TV through Roku so there's no commercials. I can't even imagine the things Jackson would be asking for if he watched regular TV!
