4. Glad to hear it.

But how many parents go to the lengths you did to order the old programs from Amazon? I don't have any grandchildren yet, but I did spend five days with my then three-year old grandniece, who was visiting while her Dads were mostly out. It was so funny: since they don't have a TV, she is used to watching children's shows that have been downloaded to an iPad for her. She couldn't understand the concept of TV. The first day we watched a children's show together, and the next day I told her she could watch another show while I was preparing dinner. She said she wanted to see the show from yesterday. I said I wasn't sure it was on today, and her response was one of bewilderment: "But you had it yesterday, just press the button!"

I have a lot to catch up on with today's young children. Thanks for the tip about Daniel Tiger's neighborhood. It sounds wonderful. And it sounds like you are doing a wonderful job of parenting!
