I am not going to pretend that we don't allow Emersyn to watch TV and that we encourage her to use her mind instead. I know all the "warnings" about letting your kids watch too much TV but my child is perfectly normal developmentally so I am honestly not worried and she LOVES her Disney (DEE-KNEE). Channel 35 (The Disney Channel) is on a lot at our house. We love Little Einstein's, we tolerate Doc McStuffins, Jake and the Neverland Pirates holds our interest for about 10 min, but Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is our favorite! When she says she wants Dee-Knee she wants Mickey! And she gets very upset when Jessie or A.N.T Farm is on (that is not Disney to her). Thank goodness for Direst TV and free cable shows. Unfortunately, sometimes they only have 1-2 episodes of Mickey Mouse which means that we watch them EVERY night.
I can literally quote Daisy Bo-Peep at the moment! :-)
When Mickey starts she is like an adult watching a sporting event. She points out all the characters and calls out their names when they are introduced. She sits at the edge of her chair and bounces her legs in excitement and she has a huge smile on her face. It is sometimes a struggle to get her to sit down in her chair instead of stand right in front of the TV and dance in excitement the whole episode.
Here she was last weekend standing and watching her favorite show ever!
