One Chicago mom's attempt to keep an accurate log so her kids will have something helpful to show the therapists.
Thanks for asking the question that we've all been asking since our kids discovered Caillou. I'm busting this out the next time my 5yo daughter asks "Mommy, why do you hate Caillou?"
Just one word is really necessary to answer your question. "Duh!"Robyn
Even though I'm quite brilliant, or maybe it's my age, but who or what the heck is a Cailou???
Sara - so many reasons to hate Caillou, but I think comments have a character-limit. Robyn - I knew you'd understand.Maplewood - It's a kids' show on PBS where the boy (Caillou) whines his way through life and is in dire need of a backhand. The parents do nothing by cater to his incessant whining and it drives us all crazy.
ahhh...I see. Thanks for the heads up Marianne...another quality show I'll refrain from watching. This redoing of my blog is quite taxing. No time..
Swear to the Heavens above, the reason I started reading Stark.raving.mad.mommy is because she and I share an equal and frightfully intense hatred of Caillou. What the crappin crap is up with that whiny little s**t? Hate that kid, I swear. I'm so relieved that he's hated the world over and that you, my dear long-distance friend, get my rage :)
Oh Marianne, this just brought a smile to my face (particularly the description of Caillou you just gave here in the comments section.) I have had an intense hatred of Caillou and his antics (as well as his soft-spoken and unusually patient mother and grandmother) since Sean was a baby. I actually banned the show from Sean's lineup, but Megs has really taken a liking to that little jerk (Caillou, not Sean) and I don't have the energy to for the type of restrictions I had when Sean was her age. Oh well...
Maplewood - happy to clear things up.Erica - I'm going to check out that blog!No Way - We all do what we can to survive, even if it means plugging a kid into Caillou for a half hour to get a few things done. I'm very guilty of that myself.
I like that picture of the couple dancing..
Maplewood - it's one of my favorites!
