TV & Simplicity

I know if seems like a very simple sort of notion that all kids will gravitate towards television. Not so with Miles. He has no interest in watching television as a sort of relaxing activity. He wants to stay busy and TV bores him. We are completely OK with this. When we were welcoming Miles into the world, we talked about how it would be nice if he didn't watch that much television. Over the years, he has watched several shows like Thomas, Yo Gabba Gabba and Sesame Street. But, none of this televised entertainment has really kept his interest. Recently, we put a TV with a DVD player in his room and he is now watching some films with complete interest. The other morning, he ran out of bed to turn on his TV to watch "Finding Nemo". I nearly laughed until I coughed at the fact that my 5-year old boy is show a tiny glimmer of wanting to watch TV. We shall see how long this interest will last ..
