The first thing my children do in the morning (after eating breakfast and brushing their teeth, of course) is beg me to watch their favorite television shows on Disney Junior. Now, turning on the television the moment they open their eyes in the A.M. might seem like the most convenient idea for a SAHWM (stay-at-home-working-mom), but it doesn’t always work out that way…. of course.
Having been raised only a stone’s throw from Magic Kingdom in Florida, my world revolved around everything Mickey and Disney, and it gives me incredible pleasure knowing that my two toddlers are learning the most important first lessons in life (like sharing and caring) with Mickey and his friends, the same way I did. But with my blogging schedule and taking my daughter to pre-school in the mornings, we always don’t get to watch our favorite Disney Junior shows when they air. Luckily for my family though, Dish Network allows me to save their favorite programs on our DVR so we can sit and watch them together either in the afternoons or before bedtime. Without this feature, we wouldn’t be able to watch Little Einsteins (which usually comes on at 6am!) or Sofia The First, which is on while my daughter is at school. It’s a lifesaver, let me tell you!
Check out our photo gallery of some of our favorite Disney Junior shows and why I as a mother approve of my children watching them and tell me, how much television do you allow your children to watch? Also, do you have any favorites at home, too?
