You Know You're a Mother When: Tot Takes Over Television

When babe's is in arms, a mother can watch what she wants — from Grey's Anatomy to The Real Housewives, she doesn't have to worry about wee eyes seeing racy scenes or hearing inappropriate language. Then, the child enters the toddler phase and it's time to tame what's being shown on the tube. This can get hairy if the home only has a single television set. Hours once reserved for watching a parent's favorite sitcoms are filled with episodes of Thomas the Train and other cartoons. Or prime viewing time becomes bath, story and bedtime. If moms and dads still want to partake in the water cooler conversations at the office centered around the fate of George and Izzie, they may want to invest in a DVR or TiVo!

Pallas-Athena Pallas-Athena 8 years
The only time I was able to watch the television shows I wanted to watch at my cousin's house every weekend was at night if I wasn't too tired. During the day I would watch Dora, Veggie Tales (I love it), some Cartoon Network shows (some I like), a bunch of movies for kids, and Nick Jr. Now that I spend time with my friend and her baby I only sing Sesame Street songs even though I hate.
