Why children's programing is for kids

So I must admit that with the addition of baby bug to our family little man has been watching a bit more television than usual. Maybe its just my nature to think about things too much, but I have spent way too much time thinking about my little ones favorite shows from my adult point of view. It all started when he was watching Johnny and the Sprites and I thought to myself hmmm, a man who lives all alone in the woods and sees "sprites" that only he can see...sure... that sounds healthy, someone needs to get that guy some medication. I've also been worried about Christopher Robin, you know Pooh and Tigger and the rest of the gang get their contract renewed, but after years of being the main boy Christopher gets replaced by a younger hipper girl named Darby? You can't tell that doesn't affect a kids self-esteem. And is anyone else waiting for Handy Manny to work up the courage to just ask Kelly out, I mean you can't tell me that he goes to the hardware store every. single. day. just for supplies, I mean no one is that bad at plannng ahead. And seriously why doesnt' Caillou have hair? And don't even get me started on Barney. Like I said we really have been watching a lot of t.v. lately. Hopefully soon we'll be back to our old active selves, but until then little man will be enjoying his shows, and I'll just have to pay attention to something else.

I have to say that everybody warned me that the transition from one to two children would be difficult, in fact people talked about it like it was this harrowing experience that might just do me in, but I am so happy to report that I really feel like I am in baby heaven. Maybe its because due to his prematurity little man's birth and babyhood was somewhat stressful, and as much as I love him, it is more than fair to say that he was a difficult baby. Baby bug has been such a joy to have around, and even little man has said that he's good enough to keep.

last night Halloween was a ball little man loved trick or treating.
