With the changing weather, Momo’s been getting sick from daycare a lot. Luckily, she’s reached the point where she’s happy cuddling on the couch with mom and her favorite show. Downside, now she asks for it all the time. We have to share the television now, and she’s learned the difference between ’emmo teevee’ and ‘star tekk teevee’ time.

There’s no shortage of handwringing ‘millennials raising dumb children addicted to screens’ thinkpieces out there, and it’s hard to turn off that part of my brain. So it’s kind of a relief to look outside in the morning and see rain, and feel that little bit less guilty that all I want to do is sit on the couch and cuddle and watch TV with my daughter.
