Why are kids' brains hardwired to stand not more than 12 inches away from the TV when watching it? Are they afraid of missing something in the movie they've already watched 3,401,982 times? Maybe I was brainwashed as a child when my mom said that we would ruin our eyes if we stood too close to the TV...I don't know. But when I see Cade doing this the mom instinct in me kicks in and I ask him to move away from the TV. He'll usually do it--especially if I threaten to turn off Thomas; but then I catch him not 5 minutes later with his face in the TV. I caught him not only standing too close, but picking his nose and eating his boogers too! It was a two-fer picture.
