Ok so Kimbery over at All Work and no Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something confesses stuff on Saturdays. It’s not an actual meme, just something she does.
But I thought since I am all out of things to say (actually, I’m not…I just can’t get in the mood to write about any of them right now), that I would participate since I DO have a confession.
And it is this:
I let my kid watch TV all the dang time.
That’s right. The TV is rarely off in this house. Ever.
See? Even from Eddie’s beginning we had that darn TV on constantly. This area of our house is where Eddie has been pretty much raised. It’s our living room. It has a TV. Hence the boy is in front of the TV a LOT.
He even learned to roll himself over on his tummy and fall asleep when we were losing. Smart boy. Although I am starting to wonder if not only did I let him watch TV too much, but I had him on the floor too much too. huh.
Here we are…more recent. This is probably just a month or so ago. At least we decided that if the TV was going to be on? Perhaps we should have kid-appropriate shows on. For awhile Eddie was watching whatever we had on…and I am guessing Gangland on the History Channel is probably not the most appropriate show for a 15 month old.
The fact that we have Dora on demand constantly is maybe not healthy.
So we have turned off the TV from time to time (it’s off right now and it’s WAY to quiet in the house. I am all creeped out).
But then this happens…
The boy loves TV.
The boy is quiet when we put the TV on.
The boy signs “more” when his Tivo-ed program ends.
And did I mention he is quiet?
Oh man…what did I create?
