Growing up with TiVo

This post from a year ago discusses the effect TiVo had on the author's three-year-old daughter. It's interesting to read because the effects on our daughter have been similar.
  • She expects her shows to be available at any time.
  • She doesn't have any schedule for watching.
  • She's confused when we're somewhere else and she can't get her shows just as easily.
Unlike the little girl in the post, our little girl hasn't taken an interest in commercials. I don't think that's a function of TiVo anyway. I think kids are more interested in commercials in general.

As long as I'm talking about children's television, I'd just like to state the obvious and say that Boobah is about the same show as Teletubbies, and I'm shocked—shocked—at how long it took me to notice it.
