1. You have to restrain yourself from singing Mr Tumble’s “Hello” song when saying “hello”. And waving. And using Makaton sign language along with your conversation.
2. The statement “Oh my child doesn’t watch television” is met with a defensive argument about why Cbeebies is actually very educational, and how
you your child really just watches it for the songs.
3. “What do you mean you don’t want to watch Sarah & Duck?” becomes a frequent, exasperated question in your household on a weekly basis.
4. The most viewed video on your YouTube account is the Miss Mouse song from Show Me, Show Me. Not due to requests from your toddler. In fact, it’s what you turn to after a bad day; rather than the normal parental glass of Mother’s Ruin.
You know it’s a really bad day if you’re discovered drinking gin and watching the Miss Mouse song.
