Supernanny Interruptus

supernanny-joThe older girls were safely on the bus. The 6th grader — just back from Outdoor Education Camp — did not have her tie- dye t-shirt, but other than that all was well. I turned the TV on around 7 a.m. intending to watch the news. Somehow I ended up watching Supernanny.

I don’t usually watch TV in the a.m. I have a policy of not letting the kids watch TV before school — in spite of this I sometimes turn on the TV and watch with the volume down. I’m sneaky like that. Invariably, someone shows up. Figures!

The 6-year-old wandered in this morning as I was watching an episode of Supernanny about a family with 3 boys who fight and hit each other constantly. I turned it off. No sense in allowing my son to see this type of household hijinks. We’re not a physical type of family and want to remain as such.

Has this ever happened to you? Do your children come and join you as you are stealing a quick minute to watch some TV? Invariably when I watch Oprah in the afternoon I have to turn it off due to an episode about cross dressing or transgenderism. Figures!

    This kind of thing happens to me all the time! I know DVR everything that I want to watch and watch it after the kids go to bed!

    Yep. My son has stumbled upon some of Oprah’s more “interesting” topics or creepy 48 hours episodes at which point I figured I’d watch the rest at a later time 😀
