Lydia does not watch a lot of tv. Well, to me, she doesn’t watch a lot of tv. I’m not one who keeps the tv on for company. I don’t really like a lot of extra noise. She watches Sesame Street during breakfast. Then an occasional Playhouse Disney show in the afternoon. The only thing we ever listen to on the ipod is Psalty or Baby Signing Time.
Well, the other day Les wasn’t home, I was trying to cook dinner and Lydia was just a little grumpy, so I put her in the high chair in front of the tv and let her watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Personally, I love this show. I do! I’m not into kid’s shows that are about being a friend or equlity or global warming. I don’t want the world to teach her morality, just numbers and colors. Anywhoooo. So, I’m listening to Mickey and Minnie try to solve a problem. Then Mickey says, “We need a mouskatool! We need to call Toodles!” And what does Lydia say as loud and clear as can be? “OH, TOODLES!” *sigh*
Later on, we were printing some coloring sheets from the computer. There was a banner on the top of the page of Little Einsteins. Lydia started pointing, jumping up and down and said, “Rocket! Rocket! Rocket!” And to quote Quincy, “I can-not believe it!”
Do your kids respond to TV?
