A Total Addict

I have a problem, but I don't think I am the only one. When I talk to my friends they seem to be doing the same thing as me - watching TV. I have way too many shows that I like. The sad part is that most of them are on at the same time. So I spend my nights riding my stationary bike while I flip through 3 -4 channels trying to get the highlights of all the shows I watch. Then since I do not feel that I've seen enough to know what was going on, I search online to find the full episode and proceed to waste more time watching internet TV.

I worry about my daughter watching too much television. She is not even 2 and she will stop whatever she is doing if she hears any pbskids or playhouse Disney show theme song. That tells me that I'm right to worry.

Over the past couple of weeks I've made an effort to have her play more and sit less. She loves playing outside. I've tried to take long walks and stop at the park for her to play. But I only get in a couple of walks a week. There always seems to be something to do at home. I don't drink caffeine, so most days I just feel tired. Not that caffeine should make a difference. Because on the days that I do get out I feel more energized. Which I think most doctors would agree that it takes energy to have energy. LOL

When friends come over to play with my little girl I find it so much easier to get things done. But I have never joined any playgroups. I am not sure why. So I need advice how do/did you entertain a two year old without the use of a tv? Also, what are the your favorite shows? I need to shorten my list.

Well I'm planning on not having a tv be in the living room, maybe in a play room or whatever.
