That little factoid is something I never would have known were it not for my monthly parent meeting at the twins' preschool Wednesday night.
Uggh, it was probably the first meeting were I wanted to go all raging be-atch on them and say "listen, since the correlation between tv watching and serial killing has yet to be proven I'll take my chances with the kiddos watching a little boob tube now and then" but I held my tongue.
The preschool teacher , whom I normally think the sun rises and sets for, made it clear that she thinks tv is satan and refuses to entertain many arguments otherwise. I knew this about her but only that night did I find out why. She launched in to a story about how she'd become addicted to a soap opera several years ago and when her kids would come in to the room she'd shoo them away exclaiming "You're making me miss this". It was at that point,she said, that she realized the tv was running her life and that was unacceptable.
To which I say of course it's unacceptable, my kids are much more important then any television program and that I would never do anything like that.
Well, um, not since the advent of the DVR anyway...
Enjoy your weekends my lovelies and y'all come back next week y'hear as I may just have a little snacky kind of giveaway for you.
