the only tv that ds (2.5) has ever been allowed to watch was a johnny cash concert dvd because johnny cash music is his FAVORITE right now and we knew he would love it (which he did). all of our close friends & family know that we don't allow ds to watch tv and how important it is to our values. i was talking to my dad's ex-wife (who i kept a friendship with) about how tough it is having only one income so i can be a SAHM. she knows that i have casually sold stuff on ebay here & there when i've had time and she just said "well, you might just have to plop ds in front of the tv so you can do some ebay". i will never just "plop" my kid in front of the tv like it's a babysitter. i was SOOOO offended, to me that's like feeding him doritos & mountain dew. it just goes against so much that we stand for. the thing that irks me the most is the fact that she just acted all irritated when i got offended by her comment as if i'm the one being ridiculous, she just doesn't get it. sometimes i feel like no one around me gets it except dh & myself. just needed to blow off some steam.
