Our new favorite show... and other antics


and it does not even premiere till Sept 6th!

Harley is already hooked on this show.  We have viewed every sneak peak video on the PBS site...  This weekend we played a game called the cat family wherein I am the mommy cat and he is the baby.  He hides under a blanket, which is his egg.  I sit on him (not really), and then he hatches.  I was informed that he had a little kitchen in his egg which consisted of an oven and a sink, and some food.  He made himself kitty kibbles,  wet food and saucers of milk.  He also drank lots of water because, you know, it's good for you.

Another little unrelated quirk that has us entertained lately is that Harley has picked up on a saying that I sort of resurrected lately.  I had a work partner that used to get so tickled at himself when he would call somebody a "Fish eyed FOO"!  (Like Fred Sanford used to call Aunt Esther...) Then we'd start cracking S&S jokes and reminiscing about all the fun characters. (My fave is Grady) But anyway Ahem, as I was saying, I said it for some reason lately and Harley latched on to it.

If there is anything funnier than a 4 year old saying "Fish eyed FOO"!  with the perfect Ebonic inflection, I'm not sure what it is.

Have fun out there.

We've watched it a few times on PBSkids.org. My kids love it. I love how educational shows are getting these days.

PBS always surprises me. Just when I think they are turning too soft, they come out with another great show. I still love Dragon Tales, that opening song is so catchy, I used to dance with my 3 toddlers (now school age) on our living room carpet to that song.

Now if only they could make a PBS cartoon from Brown's Goodnight Moon...

Suggest that to your local station! You never know...
Thanks for stopping Theresa. Always nice to see you.
