do you ever sit down and watch tv with your kids when

there is really nothing else to do like laundry, clean the house, do errands, make your grocery list, wash dishes, give them baths? Like right now its 11:13am on a sunday. it is extremely cold outside and rainy. We have no where to go and nothing to buy. we are watching tough love 2 on vh1. my daughters are 3 1/2 and 5. my oldest is on the floor with pillows playing with a book that comes with a pen and u can erase it with a button. My other one is right next to me with a pink monkey from build a bear. Oh and hubby is still sleeping because he loves going to bed late.

  • I sit and watch tv with my girls sometimes but I already know all the programs they watch otherwise. I do not usually get to do that with the girls since I also have a colicy 3 month old!

  • When we sit down to watch TV it's usually something for kids. Right now our 13 yr old is playing his playstation, and our 6 and 7 yr old are listening to music in their room and pretending to be in a band.. I'm sitting here staring at my laptop, waiting for the next batch of cookies to be done.

  • I did it when there was all of that stuff to do. It was my little "rebellion". You know - guilty pleasures.

  • I always watched TV with my kids, starting with Sesame Street, then family shows such as Donny and Marie and Happy Days....and when they were older, TV gave us plenty of heavy-duty,important topics to discuss. It can be a positive experience, Of course this was in the 1960's through 1980's, when shows were pretty clean and wholesome. Heh.

  • Hell, I do it when I DO have laundry and stuff to do!! My kids will only be kids for so long, and the laundry will always be there. I'd rather focus on my kiddos when they're home and save the cleaning for when they're at school.
