Bubble Guppies

Paisley absolutely loved TV when she was a newborn.  She'd crane that head all the way around like an owl to sneak a peek of whatever was on.  Even if it was something sucky like golf.  I think she owes all of her neck muscle strength to this!  It was one of the only ways to get a minute or two to rush around getting things done before she required our undivided attention again. 

Then she could ignore it no matter what show was on.  It could be at the highest volume showing crazy bright colors and blaring music and she'd go on about her business like it didn't exist.  She's actually really good at being "selective" already.  What she hears, what she's able/wlling to do, what she likes/dislikes...

Until about a month ago when she discovered her 1st true love.  The Bubble Guppies.  It's a show on Nickelodeon about fish.  And she loves it.  She will sit and watch an entire 30-minute show.  Which is great for us because she is not the easiest child to entertain.  She'll even squeal when it comes on! 

And before anyone gets onto me about TV watching, I keep Paisley very busy with baby gym, art and music classes, playdates with friends and other activities.  But this mama needs her hands free once in a while!!!


  1. We LOVE Bubble Guppies!! My pre-schooler is learning so much from these little fish! All the new shows are actually teaching the kiddos, not just entertaining:-)

  2. Hey, I'm all for a little TV time for kids :) I've never seen this show though, sounds cute!

  3. Haha mine are watching their afternoon 30 mins of sesame street right now! Gives me a chance to clean up and catch my breath!

  4. Um. My boys watch tv a lot :) I honestly think they will be smarter for it. Not the opposite of what the "articles" say. ( I guess I should state that a lot is like 30 min on sat and sun morning. ha)

  5. No judging here... Roman LOVES Jack's Big Music Show and Toot and Puddle :) But... I do wanna know about this Baby Gym you speak of. What is it and where is it?

  6. Kylah's 9 and we're very strict on when she watches TV during the school year, but weekends and summertime is free reign. I grew up watching tons of TV and I'm sorry but I know for a fact I turned out just fine :) And my husband isn't as big of a TV person as I am, but he plays computer CONSTANTLY - but guess what his career is in? Computer programming!!! So all those people that want to judge just need to go on about their merry way because we all turned out just fine, and kids watching TV is not the horrible thing it's been made out to be!!! Now I shall step back down off my soapbox LOL :)
