Mother's Little Helper

I'd like to tell you that Violet is speaking Spanish and Chinese because I am a kick ass mother. But that would be lying. I'm not averse to lying, per se, especially about my parenting skills, but I want to hear the truth from you, so my lies wouldn't be helpful in this particular instance. The truth is simply this: Violet watches what I think is a lot of TV. It's educational TV, so does that make a difference?
Good lord! Is that what is considered rotting your brain? A two-year-old speaking three languages? Here she is, prattling on in Chinese and Serge and I sit our big asses on the couch watching The Judds reality show. I can’t speak Chinese but I can certainly tell you what The Real Housewives of New York City are up to.
It's what I'm babbling about today. So come on over and give me a tongue lashing about how TV will rot your brain or make me feel better by throwing out the number of hours your children watch TV.
