Welcome to the Monday Media Blog on Chief 187™Chatter.
Sickness has had its grip on Casa 187 for well over a week and, all told, since the Christmas holidays in one way or another. From colds to stomach viruses it has been, well, a typical winter with children!
As a parent I feel that if a child is sick enough to stay home from school then he or she needs to be in bed. But, once school hours are over and the child is on the mend I do allow some television to be watched.
I remember being a child and waiting for permission to turn on the TV. In my room I had a
child’s turntable and a couple of albums that were fairy tales or children’s music. I listened to that when I wasn’t sleeping or reading until I was permitted to watch television.
Once given the green light I enjoyed The Price is Right, soap opera Days of Our Lives, and re-runs of The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Today’s focus on the Monday Media Blog is the media you would watch, play, and or listen to when you were/are home sick and were/are well enough to be entertained.
Did you/do you watch television game shows, re-runs, talk shows, soap operas, or C-SPAN? Were you/are you engrossed in an all-day video game marathon? Did you/do you simply listen to music?
Wishing you all a healthy rest of winter and time with your favorite media every day of the week!
