Today, our VCR died.
I know, I know, it is pitiful that we still even own such an archaic device in todays world of TiVo and whatever all else there is.
But Little Sprout loves the VCR. From the VCR comes all her glorious "Bear in the Big Blue House" and "Sesame Street" programs.
Not only does Little Sprout love the VCR, but so do I. My only moments of peace come when Little Sprout is mindlessly enthralled by the colored lights on the screen and the surround sound singing of her favorite characters.
Today, the VCR not only died, but it took her very favorite "Bear" tape with it.
We are all in mourning.
