I don't watch TV with my kids. I watch just enough to know what is objectionable but I rarely sit down and watch, say, the Imagination Movers. TV time is Mommy Time.
I carry crayons with me all the time and allow them to color on the paper at the dr's office, etc. This saves me time, money, sanity and lugging around loads of coloring books.
I cloth diaper because I hate taking out the garbage.
