Today has been one of those days where there was lot of parenting by DVD. I’ve been ill, the rain’s been chucking it down so we’ve only been able to go outside for a short spell and my wife’s still recovering from having given birth a couple of weeks ago.
Something has had to give. Unfortunately it’s meant our eldest has been left to watch a couple of DVDs and, er, one or two cartoons. Don’t get me wrong, she hasn’t been dumped in front of the tellybox all day but she’s spent more time in front of the cathode ray tube than I am comfortable with (yes, we still have an old fashioned television).
