Is it just me, or does anyone else measure their parenting success by how early or late in the day cbeebies is turned on?

Made it until 2.40 today for the first switch on - not bad! grin

I can beat you today! Not even on yet! admittedly ds is at his nannas for a few hours......(since his afternoon nap!)

Well done!

I also try occasional TV free days (when we are not planning to go out too), and they leave me feeling quite faint. Though 'tis a blessing not having to sit through another excruiating episode of Me Too or Balamory

You know its a bad day when they watch the same programme twice!

Went on at about 8am in my house today.

I am 22 weeks pregnant, fat, achey, tired, sore, dizzy (from low blood pressure) and tired - yes I know I said that already but I felt it deserved including twice.

My 2 and a half year old is just too much for me today - I cannot wait for this baby to get here!

I am never doing this again!

dd3 can switch it on by herself, so she does... as soon as she wakes up! it's normally on before I get out of bed blush

absolutely. I would be very proud if I got to 2.40! I have to ration myself and often measure it against outside time. So ds has been to a kids gym and to the park today so I convince myself tv can be on for longer

btw pre- 7am tv just doesn't count, it's essential for parental mental health!

Definitely agree with the pre-7am policy! TV is back off again, but will no doubt be back on within the hour! Can't cope with the 'I want to watch telly, I want to watch the telly, I want to watch the telly, just for 2 minutes, please can I watch the telly' etc etc etc
