All the children are in bed asleep yet DH is still watching Ben and Holly and laughing at it.

If it wasn't bad enough that I have to watch back to back Peppa with ds.

AIBU to steal the TV remote? I have asked him to change it already, but he wanted to finish watching hmm

Can't you watch TV on the device you've posted on?

We used to do this without realising. Kids both out of the room and we sat there watching the octonauts.

I'd say yes but ive ended up watching shit like that long after the kids had left the room far too many times, so I'd be a hypocrite grin

No only Iplayer or Youtube. Besides DH is actually playing a game on his computer so does not need to watch TV.

Finally got the remote off him after it switched to Peppa Pig, that was a step too far even for him.

Put on Care Bears or My Little Pony. If he protests, say you'll just finish watching the episode.

Not a bad idea paxillin, I can confess to enjoying MLP. Although I think Pokemon might be a better option as Dd1 and 2 are obsessed and drive him round the bend constantly waffling on about mega-evolving and which Pokemon they have just caught.

Hello, my name is AnotherStitchInTime and I secretly watch MLP grin.

I am quite partial to an episode or five of Young Dracula, strictly for the kids of course

YABU, I'd take Ben and Holly any day over my current situation of watching DP on the Xbox sad
