The iPhone Diaries: Kids & TV

Good Tuesday to ya! I’m excited to start a new series of sorts called The iPhone Diaries with you guys. I think it will be an awesome way for you to see me as I am and for me to share my thoughts, blurbs, and other things that come to my frantic mind with you. I also hope that it will encourage you to share your thoughts with me! I really treasure others advice, especially when it comes to this thang called motherhood.

Which brings me to today’s iPhone Diary…..

But first, here are some things that you must note about this vlog:

  • I do not have on makeup and therefore I am in mommy mode. Talk about real. This is what I look like most days.
  • Yes, I have a country accent. It’s part of my southern charm. 🙂
  • It’s taken from my iphone so the cinematography might not be up to par.

Please leave comments! I’d love to know your thoughts!

  1. I didn’t let my kids watch Spongebob until they were at least seven. Delilah, my two year old, usually sticks with Nick Jr. or Disney Jr.
    Sometimes we watch Sprout, and she does love Sesame Street and a few other shows on PBS as well. My basic rule is keep it educational. When Braeden, my ten year old, was little, he lived on Sprout. Unfortunately, the channel is no longer commercial free and definitely gears its advertising toward children (e.g. if I have to listen to the song for Dream Lites or Stompies one more time, I might pull out my hair).
    Follow your instincts. I think teaching our children that it’s not okay to watch Spongebob just because every other kid watches it is a good stepping stone toward teaching them to be a leader and not a follower. It’s the little things!

    • I think you’re right Ronda! The TV rating for Spongebob I believe is Y-7 and that’s probably a good idea. We have been letting her watch it because it’s not as bad as some. She thinks that the Cartoon Network is ok for her to watch because it cartoons, but that is simply not the case. I’ve been doing my best to explain to her why she can’t watch certain things but she likes to know why on and on. I think it will be better when she starts school in the fall. Not so much TV will be necessary!

      And I’m with you on those commercials! OH MY GOODNESS the Dream Lites are killing me. And unfortunately she thinks that she absolutely HAS to have one. She even knows the website, it’s ridiculous.

      When it gets cooler outside, I’m sure we’ll spend much more time out there. Darn this million degree weather!

    There is so much trash on TV these days that you have to be so careful what you let your kids watch! If I’m not in the room, I will put on a DVD instead of TV, because I just don’t want them watching something when I’m not present.
    Agree with Ronda that Sprout used to be great, but with commercials it’s not as good anymore.
    We have a rule in our house that if we’re watching something and commercials come on, the kids get busy with something else. You can be watching a perfectly good show and the commercials are horrible!

    • That’s a good idea! I should bust out my Tommy Nelson Booga Boogaland DVDs. No commercials and they are educational and perfect for her age.

      The commercials are so bad these days. I never realized how geared towards kids they were until I had my own kids. I remember watching them as a kid and thinking they were cool. Never thought about what they would mean for my momma!

  3. Since I don’t have kids I can’t really chime in this week but I wanted to let you now that I love the idea of your new series. I can’t wait to see what you have in store!
