Miss P. stayed home from Pre-school today. I took her into the pediatrician’s office with a crusty eye and a cold. If you ever want to feel like a leper take your toddler into an elevator with a crusted eye in a red wagon with a stuffed giraffe in the back seat and a carry-on potty.
She’s fine and on antibiotics, but with very low energy she watched way more T.V. than she probably should have. Sidenote: Don’t you love when ‘experts’ say “If you are going to let your child watch TV, make sure to watch it with them.” Are you kidding me? If my child is sitting in silence I’m using that hour to go beast-mode on my house. Or feed myself.
Anyway, that was a long-winded way to say I have a LOT to say about toddler television programs. So here goes:
Bubble Guppies – This is a great show. Mostly because none of the characters have annoying voices. However, Nonni is a totaldowner. Oona (Nonni’s friend): “Hi! I’m Oona and I like to play on the playground!” Nonni: “Hi. I’m Nonni. And I like facts.” Really dude? Facts?
Curious George – Another great show. A classic, really. But I mean can’t the monkey just learn how to talk already? (I felt the same way in Big Bang Theory when Koothrapali never spoke in front of girls. How long can they keep this charade up?) Also the Man With The Yellow Hat is a total dork. No wonder his only friend is a monkey.
Oh, Dora. I feel the same about you as I do Bud Light Limes. One is okay. Two is too sweet.
Caillou is a whiny midget.
Doc McStuffins wasn’t happening. I think this was because it looked like she was dissecting her lovee’s. For me, this would be the equivalent of watching someone pour good red wine down the drain.
We both fell asleep during Sesame Street. #Snoozefest.
I always like the message that Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood puts out. But I don’t get it – was that Mister Roger’s…..tiger?
Jake & The NeverLand Pirates is kind of fun. Except they could do without the creepy real-life man pirate duet at the end. Are they drunk?
And finally, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. As hubby calls it: “Just good old-fashioned fun.” No, seriously. He said that about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I think he and The Man with The Yellow Hat should go grab a coffee.
