Bye Bye Dora
I've been turning off the TV more. When we get home from daycare/work, I let the kids roam around while I get dinner ready. The easiest thing to do is turn on the TV. But I don't even though I like listening to the news while I cook. Instead the girls play and chatter is the background noise or I put on a kid's music CD. Sometimes at the end of the meal, I might turn on Dora or Little Bear but that's after Janae as eaten most of her dinner otherwise she gets distracted and won't eat while the TV hums.
