I have a feeling that today is going to be a "watching sesame street all day" day. Lyla is just cranky and I just don't care.
All those "experts" lately have been talking about TV and toddlers and how bad it is for them - even if it's educational. They are saying it has to do with communication. Kids who watch too much TV are interacting less with their parents therefore it hurts their verbal skills.
BULSH! Lyla watches about an hour and a half of TV a day. We have a routine that works. I have to work so the TV is my babysitter sometimes. But every other minute of the day I'm talking to Lyla, I'm teaching her as much as I can. She will not have issues with communication because we watch TV in my house.
So if we are having a bad day - like today - when I have a boatload of work to do and Lyla is super, extra clingy, she's going to have to watch more TV than usual. And I'm okay with that. And I don't care what other's think.
