Really, I love PBS. Since we don’t have cable, it’s the one channel that I know Khaila can watch and I don’t have to worry that she’s being exposed to something I don’t want her to be. This week and last, they’ve been doing their fund drive. I’m a HUGE supporter of these drives. I know that they are essential to the network.
What upsets me is when they change the morning programming to reflect the promotion they are offering for sponsorship. When you have a child who doesn’t tell time, you rely on other methods of helping them understand when it’s time to do things. In our house, Dragon Tales is on first thing in the morning. This is when Khaila has breakfast and I have my coffee. Once Sesame Street comes on, I get in the shower and once I’m dressed, Khaila knows it’s time to get her dressed and ready for the day. Today, we’ve had over an hour of Dragon Tales. She doesn’t think we should be getting dressed and I can’t fault her logic. “Mommy, Elmo’s not on. Don’t want to get dressed.”
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go win this round of the battle!
