Ok so I've been very anti tv during the day (id put it on around 5.30/6 while cooking tea) until dd and I both came down sick. We tv and couched it for two solid days, and did very little else when I wasn't feeling like dying. The tv went on, and we just quietly did not much but get healthy on the other days. So now dd 18mo, gets up every morning gets the remotes and continuously asks fwaooool?' (Fraggles). (I at least also put on quality DVD viewing) and she keeps handing me the 'moomote'. So far I'm holding off til after breakfast and getting dressed.... Then fwaooool it is. I'm just wondering what other mums are doing with tv?? When and how long is it on for, and what ages, is 18mo too young to be fixed to the tv?? I feel like I'm not helping her brain cells out.. :/. Though I'm glad it's only fraggles. It's nice to do the dishes in one hit and maybe make some food in peace though I have to say...!
