Blind by Age Two

Yes, that is my child sitting approximately 1.57 inches away from the television screen.
We have an ottoman on wheels that he rolls up to the t.v. and sits upon. He peeled himself away from the screen to smile for the camera.
Did they prove that sitting too close to the t.v. and loss of vision have no correlation? Is the verdict still out?
I don't guess it matters much, since he doesn't sit in one spot for more that twenty five seconds anyway. He lost interest in the t.v. and began jumping off the ottoman immediately after I took the picture. It's a good thing we have another kid, we'll be lucky if this one makes it to age twelve.

I think the more important point of the photo is that your boy is watching Family Guy!

(My favorite show, by the way.)

Oh, yeah. The toddler watching "Family Guy" is yet another reason why I am great parent!

haha, I didn't realize he was watching family guy! At least he doesn't know what they're saying. We only have a little bit of time left to watch whatever we want until they start actually listening. Oh, and Austin does the same thing. He likes to be close enough so he can touch the characters if he feels the need :)
