    Why the fuck is an EpiPen $150 with insurance I fucking hate this country.

    See if your insurance covers the generic. If not ask for the vial /syringe.

    That recommendation is changing, thankfully. It was kind of a nonsense recommendation when kids were in virtual school and I think everyone's aware on some level that 1 hour per day is deeply impractical.

    The studies I've seen only say unsupervised screen time is bad. If you're with you're kids talking about shit they're watching on TV it's fine. If they're engaged in some sort of interactive play that's probably also good. If you use some dumb ass shit like Blippy as your babysitter for 2 hours it's probably not great.

    I forgot the study, but there's been work done looking into 'quality' shows and continuing to interact with the kid as fine to beneficial. They don't do a good job teaching language though, and pretty much any TV on in a room means adults talk less too.
    Also gotta go stare off into the distance sometimes to help their eyes? Not sure how true this one is.

    Did some asking. The 155 and change is for the generic. And I can't get the syringe and vial because I need to have one of the injectors for school.

    Robocar Poli is set in a future dystopia where 99.9% of the human race has died to an unknown virus. The few adults that remain focus their efforts on breeding (explaining why there are so many more children than adults), their every need fulfilled by the sentient robot cars that maintain the city, performing their function as if the race they serve hadn't disappeared. The 3 or so adults we see with jobs are sterile.

    Bro if you wanna talk about toddler show world building you should hear some of the conversations I've had with my wife about some shows.

    Take Peppa Pig, for example.
    She thinks all the humans have been wiped out (except for Santa and the Queen who are undying mutants) and the animals have evolved to inhabit the trappings of human society, but they don't have any context for the world they inherited so they're just playing at being humans (illustrated by the "Work" mummy and daddy pig do, which is just writing gibberish or punching numbers into a computer)

    Whereas I think the animals are an Island of Doctor Moreau, genetic hybrid human animals situation, being contained and observed in a Truman Show esque public display. This explains why the world is so perfectly uniform and manufactured. Santa and the Queen are the humans who host the daily televised highlights from inside the Dome and on special occasions they make appearances with the animals. These are always the highest rating shows.

    Fuckity fuck, it is looking a lot more likely that they're going to lock down schools again, just like last year. All because my government is a bigger mess of idiots than those goons in the UK. I'm just constantly so angry and sad.

    I mean, it's obvious that Octonauts takes place in a future where no humans remain, and animals have evolved to use and advance our leftover technology for the purpose of saving and protecting other non-anthropomorphic animals.

    Right?

    Neither of those take account for Miss Gazelle being an immortal vampire.

    So we all acknowledge the only reason Norman Price hasn't been driven out of Ponty Pandy is because he's clearly the lovechild of Fireman Sam and Phillis. See any other red headed men?

    The villains in PJ masks also go to the same school as the heroes.

    Octonauts also live in a far flung post human society, where very little of our environmental destruction remains. Only a few leaking pipes.

    Never let your children watch Earth to Luna. It fucking sucks.

    Wife has been away for two nights for work.

    Son has been fine with me but today I dropped him off at nursery and my wife picked him up.

    Apparently he was inconsolable at nursery meal time asking where his mummy was.

    He's now supper clingy and won't settle in bed because he keeps asking for me, my wife, his grandparents and his nursery workers.

    I guess it's some sort of separation anxiety that's kicked in again because my wife has bene away?

    This is the first time my wife has been away over night for just under two years.

    Oh yeah that shit is completely normal. Emotionally taxing when the kid wants anyone other than his goddamn Dad.

    I remember day 1 of mommy going back to work with our first. She had been home on paid leave for 5 months and our daughter was not happy without her mommy around. By day 2 though, daddy was pretty cool.

    And since I was the stay-at-home parent, both kids now just know I'm the comfort pick for anything kid related, and are surprised when mommy doesn't know the routines. :)

    well

    she's made it almost a full week of no diapers overnight and a dry bed in the morning.

    hallelujah.

    of course i had just bought a brand new case of diapers. And it's still unopened. so it might just be my time to pay it forward soon

    My daughter has a little notebook that she likes to write in before bed sometimes, like a journal or diary. Tonight when I was putting her to sleep she was writing furiously in there before looking up and asking me, "Dada, how do you spell eels?"

    "Eels, like electric eels or moray eels?"

    "Like eels that live underwater."

    "Ok, I just wanted to be sure. E-e-l-s."

    "Thank you!" And then back to furious scribbling.

    I have never looked in that notebook. And I still won't. But I have never been more curious - and now a bit confused - about what she writes in there...

    Second covid shot get for the two kids.
    My daughter is already trying to get a sleepover planned with her friends ( also being vaccinated in the coming week, or already vaccinated)
    I said she had to wait at least two weeks, and she heard "in two weeks".


    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing
