It was bound to happen sometime. Sam has found the TV. When he’s lying on his quilt exercising on the floor, he now turns his head nearly 90 degrees with his ear to his shoulder to see what’s on. So now we figure it’s time for him to start DVRing his own cartoons so that we can leave him for hours on the floor with nothing to stimulate him but Spongebob.
Actually, I hate that he has found it. When I was on bedrest, I would often have the TV on in the background while I cross-stitched or surfed the web, etc. Now I find myself turning it off if there’s not something I am actively watching (which is better for MY brain, too!), because I don’t want Sam to get hooked on the fast image changes and get distracted from play time.
