Nolan watches tv. We have a classic Sesame Street DVD (with all the favorites- C is for cookie and I love trash). And it's fun to watch! He's a big fan of Elmo and Cookie Monster and I must admit, I am finding myself enjoying those two especially also.
We only watch a few minutes at a time. We watch it together and snuggle, often when he's tired or really cranky. And come on, look how much he loves it! He points and laughs and giggles.
I can see why kids watch a lot of tv. Because they LOVE it.
While he only gets a few minutes here and a few minutes there, it is a great tool to get him to change his mind about bee-lining to the stairs or cranking about seemingly nothing.
