#TVface

This is the toddler's TV Face.
A blank and emotionless expression...
For an hour a day, I move my guilt out the way,
While she quietly feeds her obsession... 

The WallyBubba's TV Face,
Used for Charlie and Lola, and Daisy.
Un-moving, un-distracting, un-flinching, un-blinking,
But turn-over and she goes shitting crazy.

Sometimes you need the TV Face,
When you're sick, or hungover, or tired.
Just a bit of CBeebies to transfix the tod,
When you're feeling parentally uninspired... *coughs*

We ALL know our child's TV Face,
It feels like a guilty little sin...
But the constant Peppa demands, and endless Makka-Pakka chants,
Feel better if you also give in to #gin.

  1. And an adorable face it is, too. There's something very comforting about those glazed expressions, isn't there.....a guaranteed break for at least a few minutes!
