We're TV free when DS is awake. When he's sleeping, we feel free to indulge.
Two or three weeks ago, we were at my mom's house and she took DS (18 mos) into her office and let him watch Hoops and Yo-Yo Hallmark E-cards. She's done it a few more times since then, and now DS has been taking our hands, dragging us to the computer, and asking for Hoops and Yo-Yo. He's also been walking around the house saying things like "happy sunny day" and "more waffles"- both of these are from what he's seen on Hoops and Yo Yo.
I'm pretty peeved at my mom for doing this, and a bit more upset at DH, who has started letting DS watch Hoops and Yo-Yo e-cards when he wakes up in the morning.
Now, I can think of a zillion worse things for him to be watching than Hoops and Yo Yo, but I simply don't think this is appropriate for us. I'm going to nip this in the bud with DH and my mom and really work on redirecting DS when he starts dragging us towards the computer. I'm just so miffed that my own mother would try to bend the rules by saying that e-cards aren't TV.
