Here's a hint that maybe, just maybe you let your preschooler watch too much TV that afternoon you needed to give the downstairs a deep cleaning:
When she's willing to defend it with her life.
Notice how she's still trying to watch the show, even as she throws her body against the screen.
Me (picking up remote and aiming it at TV): Hey, Natalie, it's time to turn the TV off and go play.
Natalie (emerging from semi-comatose state and leaping from couch): No! Please!
Me: It's time to turn this off. (trying to point remote around her)
Natalie (in desperation): Please! Just one more show? I have to see The Backyardigans.
Michaela Byrd (wandering in from the Kitchen): Yardidans!
Great, now it's two against one.
14 days and counting until the first day of preschool....
