I don’t get it. Violet has never watched an entire video in her whole life (except once while strapped into a car seat and after having not slept for 5 days ). But now she is obsessed, obsessed with Teletubbies. Don’t get me wrong, the show isn’t that bad. There’s some hypnotic trippy quality to it. My problem is that I’ve recorded only two episodes. So that’s what we watch. Over and over and over and over and over….
Thankfully she still doesn’t watch an entire video and is still eternally pinging against every surface in the house. But she somehow needs to have it on in the background. I see Teletubbies when I close my eyes. I hear their voices when I try to sleep. I dream of finding Tinky-Winky’s hand-bag.
Someone. Please. Kill me.
