So many people are quick to judge now. Parents get slated for pretty much everything. To some parents allowing their children to sit in front of the TV is a big no no, but not to me, I’m normal and I have needs, I need to wee, I need to eat, sometimes I just need five minutes peace and quiet. Much to my frustration Aria has never been interested in the TV, until we discovered that the Teletubbies had re-launched, then things changed…
The Teletubbies have changed the game completely. Aria LOVES them. She happily sits in her highchair transfixed by the Teletubbies which means that I get to have a cup of coffee AND a bowl of cereal in the mornings – winning at life.
I don’t know what it is that the Teletubbies have but Aria is hooked. I can only assume that it is the combination of bright colours, silly noises and real life children. I would imagine that they are also pretty relatable as they are very toddler-like in the way that they speak and act. After watching approximately 50 million episodes Aria has finally realised that the baby in the sun isn’t her and no longer shouts Aria when she sees it, now choosing to wave hello instead.
I remember the Teletubbies from the first time around, back in 1997, yep, I’m that old. At 12 I was probably a bit too old to be watching Teletubbies but they were strangely popular in my school, don’t judge, we were the generation who wore giant dummies as fashion accessories and spent entire music lessons practicing the Rugrats theme tune on the keyboards.
Thankfully I have a baby who enjoys her sleep which means that we are never up at 7am to watch the episodes when they are broadcast, thanks to the cleverness that is BBC iPlayer we don’t have to be and can binge watch episodes as and when we want, which is especially great if I am having a particularly
Thank you Teletubbies for babysitting my daughter and allowing me to eat my breakfast in peace, long may it continue.
