My toddler has no idea what a commercial is… I know that seems crazy right? You see we don’t watch TV in our house. No, no trust me I am not one of ‘those’ moms that is against screen time. It’s just that we use Netflix or Amazon Prime. So, she has no idea what commercials are.
I laughed this morning as we walked into my daughters “School”. I LOOKED like that mom all other moms hate.
