They say that some women go a little crazy when they become new moms.
I admit it, I watch tv while breastfeeding my baby. I've tried to be mindful and simply sit and be, but I usually fall asleep if I do that. So I mindfully watch a movie instead. I've made it through many viewings of New Moon, seasons 1 & 2 of The West Wing, and a few disaster movies (gotta love those). But I started to get a little bored, so I decided to create a game for myself. I call it The 6 Degrees Game.
Here's how it works (I can't believe I'm explaining this): You start with a movie in your movie collection. Then, while watching the film, choose an actor in the film that appears in a different film in your dvd collection. Keep working your way through your dvd collection in this manner until you hit a dead end, or until the baby is sleeping nicely and you can do something productive. Like explain your crazy dvd game on your blog.
And oh yes, I will keep my dvd 6 Degrees log here, just for fun :P
