This video shows 15 month-old Lola desperately trying to explain to dad, Gareth Roe, that she would quite like to watch TV from VERY close up. Dad seems fairly certain that it’s not a good idea – flaming Health and Safety, kids used to be able to balance precariously on glass tables in the good old days and no one batted an eyelid. Nanny state etc.
Seriously though, that barrage of noises emerging from her mouth that definitely mean something to her is very recognisable as the dad of a 14 month-old – she’s probably making some particularly salient points. Well, maybe.
For a review of the best and worst shows available to watch either from the comfort of the sofa or on top of a high table (whichever you prefer), read the Bewildered Dad Guide to Kids’ TV.
