We are nearly TV-free for our DD -- most months she watches none, but there's the occasional football game at the grandparents or a movie on an airplane flight.
Since I've been pregnant, I've turned to TV twice -- first trimester, when I was very sick, she watched 2 Pooh movies.
Now I'm 38 weeks pregnant, baby just dropped in the last few days, tired. DH works night shift on the weekends, so he's sleeping today. It means we can stick around the house, but we have to be pretty quiet. DD doesn't play alone well these days, just a phase.
So far we've read books for over an hour, baked cheddar cheese crackers, and made/are eating lunch.
I'm sorely tempted to put in a movie so that I can lay down. But since we've been so strict on the no-TV front, every time I contemplate it, I feel like a total failure as a mom. I've totally blown this out of proportion in my head. Stupid hormones. But I WOULD like to avoid the TV if possible.
Anyway. I'm just looking for some support for getting through today (and probably tomorrow, and maybe next weekend) without the screen.
