How I Know She Watches Entirely Too Much TV
My 4 yr old daughter came in this morning with this request:
“Mom, can you come and change the tv? Because I’ve seen this Wonder Pet rescue like almost a hundred million times. (With her hands thrown into the air) GAH! Why are they making me watch the swan get saved again?! And, mom, can I have ice cream with chocolate syrup for breakfast?”
I think a trip to the library is in order.
And then the museum the next day.
That way we won’t be home when Children’s Services comes for the inspection.
Oh, and if you are here for the Bible Study, just scroll on down…:))
We have only had two TV stations for the past 3 years. I haven’t missed TV and rarely watch it. My hubby recently got satellite “for sports honey!”… Last night I searched through 100 stations, 100! I had to put parental blocks on about 50 for my teenager and foreign exchange student and the rest was just … blah!
The library is ALWAYS a wonderful place to visit!
How many times have I heard that very same lament from my 3 year old??!! LOL!
I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only mom out there that struggles with the television somtimes. Maybe we’ll start this evening with a good book instead of Curious George or Wonder Pets!
What I love is when my daughter asks me ‘Mom, is that your Disney Channel?’. Whatever hubby and I are watching is OUR Disney Channel. Ahem… We are now watching Noggin to break things up a bit! :)
Too funny, Lisa. Bless you! (from another PW :)
That’s funny!! Even though Ella can’t talk, sometimes I can see that on her face…I’ve seen this a million times. :-)
I believe my six-year-old daughter has made the exact same comment.
“Do I have to watch them save the whale again?!?”
My excuse (at least for the last two weeks) is that we just moved, and if TV watching means I can keep unpacking, then bring on the Noggin.
But I am thankful school starts next week, because that will break the TV habit.
Too too cute, just found you today but I gave you somoe link love and tagged you over at my site
I am SO laughing at this. Our oldest kids only got a 1/2 hour of TV a day. But the little guy was born nine years after the first and it’s a whole new era. We’ve had to put a lock on the TV cabinet to curb his addiction because with the chaos around here the TV could be on for HOURS before I would notice it.
