How to watch TV like a toddler {The Ordinary Moments 15} #4

This week we are back inside for the ordinary moments.

Despite living in the Seychelles, we still have days where we slob around being lazy, snuggle up on the sofa and watch TV.

I’ve gone through cycles of beating myself over Arthur watching TV.  I’m feeling comfortable with it these days (for now anyway).  I know we do lots of other stuff and we spend lots of time outside so watching some TV isn’t the end of the world.

Anyway, I am starting to notice that there something different in how a toddler watches TV to how we watch TV.

So if you fancy giving it a go, I have a little guide for you
How to watch TV like a toddler

  1. 1st of all you have to shove the remote in Mummy or Daddy’s face, if they don’t respond straight away whack them with it*
  2. If you’re not allowed to watch TV, have a tantrum and throw yourself to the ground in rage.
  3. Sit in the least comfy place on the sofaHow to watch TV like a toddler
  4. Pull all the cushions off the sofa and sit in the middle How to watch TV like a toddler
  5. Stack cushions and sit precariously close to the TV How to watch TV like a toddler
  6. Empty a wash basket and insist that you watch TV whilst being sat in it How to watch TV like a toddler
  7. Watch while being upside down, preferably in downward dog yoga pose! How to watch TV like a toddler

* I am currently sporting a bruise or two from this!

What do you think? Anyone got any to add to this list?

  1. Ha ha I remember those days. I used to put Martha on her potty in front of the tv when we were potty training. Sometimes we’d be there for quite some time time. …

  2. Ha ha! Yes! My two year old is actually more ‘normal’ watching TV than his 5yo sister, though – she leaps about, lies upside down, has to strip off her clothes, loads of random things! Funny to watch, and you’ve captured some great moments there x

  3. These photos are just so cute!
    M used to be like this but now he’s a PROPER slob: he gets a blanket and installs himself on the sofa. He doesn’t move, barely even blinks. He could stay there for hours, at any point of the day, if I let him. It freaks me out little and I also go through cycles of beating myself up about it… I just try to make sure he gets out lots too!
