Baby TV is a fantastic idea. Six or seven minute long brightly colured exciting programs on all kinds of creative concepts- counting, colours, words, concepts. Of course it is no surprise that Nadi’s favourite program is Baby Chef. He loves the songs, the recipes and the fact that its kids cooking. If he could, he would watch it all day except that it only comes about 3 times a day.
Having been brought up so far mainly on nursery rhyme downloads and DVDs, the concept of TV programming is a hard one to grasp in its limited time running. Today he was watching Baby Chef and seven minutes later as it ended, and he started his persistent request, I again explained to him that this wasn’t like a DVD and we could not rewind it. Put out, he cocked his head to one side, trying to understand the significanace of this, and then his face suddenly brightened. He went up and pointed towards k’s computer and asked, “Mama, tube you pe?”
Ah yes, the answer to all problems of the modern world- www.youtube.com.
