How do you feel about the television? Do you have a show that is an absolute must-see? Do you turn it on at night to veg? Did you get rid of the TV from your home a long time ago?
I could live happily without a TV (Internet is another story all together). There are just too many shows and movies that are pointless time wasters.
My husband is pretty much addicted to watching shows. We have a Netflix account and he's steadily working his way through everything they offer in the instant view area. Ash is not far behind him in that TV love.
When I turned off Spider-Man today, she cried. Luckily she's easily distracted and when I made a huge circle with her toy train tracks, she got busy playing with that instead.
I'm sure you've all read the studies that show how watching more than 2 hours of TV is actually really bad for your health, so I won't go into that (though it does concern me).
(i'm fairly sure i've shared this pic before but it was the only one i could find with a television in it. taken during the summer of 2010.)
My guilt is wrapped around letting Ash watch that full 2 hours sometimes because it's nice to have the break (when Britt and Elle are napping too). I really don't think it's good for her at all. And I wish I could figure out ways to get my husband interested in a different hobby or two.
