Glad My Mom's Not the Only One Who Does This
Sometimes when it's slow I'll cruise the parenting blogs for something to post. I don't have an entling myself, but someday I will (womb remains young thus far) and I like to stock up on tips for future headaches.
One headache I've commented on in the past and that I know of from personal experience (which is to say, when I was a child) is the horror of having to sit with your child through awful preschool television programming. My own mother had it easier. She sat through enough Sesame Street episodes that she was able to build up complex relationships between the characters. Bob and Linda totally had a thing, and Maria was so into David until she finally went and married Luis instead. That kind of stuff.
Well apparently mom was not alone on this one. Parents today are still sitting there, coming up with conspiracy theories regarding the shows they have to see. A Girl Grows In Brooklyn recently had a piece entitled TV OD - Baby Stylee in which she pondered many things including, "4. Are Miffy and Boris Bear having an affair?," and "11. Where do the Backyardigans live? Is it Jersey? Looks like Jersey." You won't get these unless you too are force-fed lamentable children's television programming. For those of you that are, however, this will feel familiar.
