So, when The Boy and I lay down for a nap (I'm still selfish and protective of my napping buddy; I love love love napping with the baby), I'll usually counterbalance his "crazy baby" time by putting something on the television. Usually, it's a DVD, with the sound low & subtitles on; it's usually a program that doesn't have high "baby interest." Right now, I'm watching episodes of Heroes (season one) and Battlestar Galactica (season 2.5); these shows have a lot of talking and exposition, meaning boring for babies. So, we're both happy.
Yesterday and today, I put on The Beavis & Butthead "Mike Judge Collection," volume 3. I bought that for my wife for Christmas a year and a half ago, and we never sat down to watch it. Both days, the baby was absolutely hypnotized by the antics of Beavis and Butthead. That's terrifying.
Here's the picture, and the perfect reason why kids shouldn't watch television: cute baby, sitting up with his usual great posture, mouth hanging slightly open, significant amount of drool forming drops at his chin, watching "Beavis and Butthead."
Scary. REALLY scary.
