TV Time

Do you let your kids watch tv?
Let me tell you in the beginning of this pregnancy, TV saved me!!
I’ve always tried to be very careful what my son watches. He loves PBS kids and Disney, in fact his newest fav is Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue. (of course the hubs wasn’t thrilled… haha)

In the afternoons he enjoys his Sid the Science Kid, Sesame Street, Ni Hao Kai Lan and Word Girl.
He does get to watch the occasional Phineas & Ferb although I see no educational point to the show whatsoever.
I sometimes feel guilty about putting my son in front of the tv while I do something else but how else am I gonna get the dishes put away the kitchen cleaned and dinner cooked.
When I was struggling through morning sickness I would get home in the afternoons and turn on a movie and throw myself on the couch and let the TV watch my son until my husband came home. I felt guilty but it was the only way I could survive! Not even my zofran could help!
I saw this article on Baby Center today on What to Watch. Yay for most of my son’s favorite shows being on the list!!
I still do believe in going outside and playing instead of being glued to the tv but when I need a quick, easy and cheap baby sitter PBS kids has been there for me! haha
And yup, I know I owe ya’ll an update on the pregnancy, it’s coming.
Nothing fancy but its coming.

Before I had kids, I was one of those that swore I'd never let my kids watch TV, except maybe half an hour of something educational once in a while. Except now they're old enough to know how to work Netflix and Spongebob is on instant streaming and if I monitored them every second we'd never eat or have clean clothes. Sigh. I do still limit how much they watch, though, and I try and convince them they want to watch PBS Kids instead.
