For the entire month of February, I will be participating in NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month – where I write a post a day, based on the prompts from @BlogHerBlogging.
Each day with Aubrey consists of moments where something needs to get done – and she’s awake. We have a swing, bouncy chair, bumbo, play mat, lots of things to keep her
contained occupied. But sometimes, it’s just not enough. She could be completely over the toys she has. What to do? Entertain her with technology, of course. When she was little, I used the baby Einstein videos on YouTube to have her hear different music. But she also loved the bright colors and quick scenes that would be on screen. At 16 weeks, she still enjoys them. She’s actually watching one right now as I finish this post.
I know there’s always controversy on tech gadgets for babies. I personally don’t have a problem with her watching tv for a bit. It allows me for a few minutes of “me” time. Sometimes it’s to get dinner going, or to work on an order for Bling Diva Designs. Plus, I was a huge movie watcher growing up. I loved all the Disney movies. And I’m hoping she shares in the same love!
