Today we watched Teletubbies. It's not the first time we've tuned in, but it's the first time Helena's really watched.
I do think this show is brilliant for very young children learning to respond to sights and sounds — clear colours, funny noises, and a giggly baby sunshine! And no complicated plot to follow.
Today Helena was all a-squeal — laughing and pointing and clapping and peering with that look in her eyes that says she's figured something out.
Thus far it's occasionally been convenient to place Helena in front of a television in order to induce a nap. (TV can have a hypnotizing effect on us all.) We've been indiscriminate in our viewing habits, but now I know it matters.
Time for tubby bye bye!
