Caillou the Annoying memes plus Friday Frivolity

Our Friday Frivolity host theme this week is Kids TV Shows. There are so many ways I could have gone with this prompt: favorite, funny, best, memories.

Toy Purge Time

It was time for “the talk” with my six year old. No not THAT one, hubby gets to have that discussion in a few years. This talk was about “giving to those less fortunate”. I explained there were some little boys whose parents couldn’t afford to buy them any toy they wanted, and this time …

The assignment: Use markers, crayons, material, etc. to make a disguise for this turkey so he won’t be eaten for Thanksgiving. The result: A mutant ninja turtle pizza chef complete with a double extra large pepperoni and mutagen pizza. Turkey? I don’t see a turkey? oooh! Pizza…. He did all of the work except for …

Just another Manic Monday

I am desperately trying NOT to let my son’s cold catch up to me. Sucking down some honey and ginger tea as I type and dutifully taking this every 4 hours. They aren’t sponsoring this post, I have just found it has helped me the last few times I felt the ticklings of a cold. …

Are little white lies really bad?

Or, are they just a way for parents to keep their sanity sometimes?    We checked out Max’s Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells from the library last week. And of course J now wants a chocolate chicken. The egg hunt I could easily set up since I still have lots of plastic eggs in the holiday …

You HAVE to be kidding me!

Remember how happy I was to be done signing all of those loan documents for our refi on Sunday? I just got a phone call from the notary service. Seems the documents were dated July 31, and you can’t pre-sign loan ducuments. We have to do it all AGAIN! … and we have to do …

Sometimes I wonder about Kids TV Shows

Am I the only parent (or grandparent, babysitter, or other adult role) whose mind starts to question things while watching shows with their children? To name a few: Curious George – cat and monkey wandering around the restaurant kitchen. Don’t they have health laws in that city?!   Blues Clues – The cat, side table, mail box, …

We signed him up for a second session and probably will keep going all summer. He loves everything about it, especially Coach Gage! Probably because the very first thing …

Daniel Tiger’s Trolley PJs

A few months ago on Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood (check your PBS listings!) there was an episode dedicated to Bed Time Routine in which Daniel puts on royal blue trolley PJ’s. You’ve seen Mr. Rodgers, THAT trolley! Of course J wanted some. We searched EVERYWHERE for pajamas or at least fabric so I could make some, or …

5 a.m. on a Saturday is too early

Coffee, must have coffee! Sanity in a mug. (Yeah, I drink coffee from a Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime mug – got a problem with that?) Playing Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, picking 5 strawberries from the Enchanted Garden to make Strawberry Pancakes for breakfast. “I cut by myself, Mommy no help.”   Banana Pancake with Strawberry Muddle (he would …
