Today I will not feel guilty...

I have been feeling a lot of guilt over how much TV the girls have been watching. JJ in particular has become quite at addict of the 'tee-tee', as she calls it. And it is easier to put it on then listen to her scream and scream and scream.... She also likes to view a little TV as she does her business on the potty so to encourage her to sit there the TV has been on to keep her company. (As an aside, I am not really sure if I am toilet training her but she is getting it at home so now sure where to go from here, I loathe toilet training.)
If it is on the other two girls will be glued to it too.
A bunch of square eyes in this house.
I had resolved that we would cut the viewing down. Come up with a plan to make it only a certain amount of time a day at designated times.
But then the virus struck us and today I have succumbed and I am feeling awful. It is also my birthday so today I will not feel guilty about the fact we will sit in front of the box most of the day. If only the girls were old enough to watch some of my recorded shows with me - ABC kids is not quite what I feel like.
But I do want to figure out how to have the TV as an occasional friend - what do you do to manage TV viewing times?
