I Love You, You Love Me, Were a Happy Family....
We pulled out the Christmas boxes yesterday. The kids found the Christmas movies I had packed away last January 1st.

Paige was excited by the large stack of new movies she had no memory of. She quickly picked up the Barney movie "Waiting For Santa". This movie has been much loved by all of our older children. They all went through their Barney stage and the Big Purple Dinosaur was very popular in our household with all but one person.

That person would be the Daddy who lives in this house.

He was very thankful his youngest daughter had skipped Barney and preferred much more sophisticated cartoons like Sponge Bob and The Wonder Pets.

He had to catch a flight yesterday morning at 6:00 a.m. to Arizona for an early morning meeting and flew home immediately after. He walked in the door at 8:30 last night understandably hungry and tired. Paige greeted him enthusiastically at the door where she immediately took his hand and wanted to show him what she was doing in the play room. He was met with the sound of the purple dinosaur singing Christmas songs on our television screen.

We still have this movie, he asked me, with a rather irritated look in his eyes?

Yes, honey, I responded. I couldn't get rid of it, it is part of our Christmas tradition.

How many times has she watched it today, he asked?

Four times.


Then an older child piped in with these words.

She really likes Barney Dad so were going to let her watch him tomorrow morning on TV. We already looked up the times.

I'm sorry honey. Maybe her Barney phase won't be as long as the other kids.

We can only hope. Sigh.

Ugh. I always said my daughter would NEVER be allowed to watch Barney...but once I figured out her two year old little butt would actually sit still for 30 minutes at a time if I put it on for her...a Barney watcher she became!

My kids have each had their favorites as well. I'm thankful none of them liked Barney. I personally have little tolerance for that purple dinosaur.lol
We've gone through Bananas in Pajamas, Teletubbies, Veggietales, Strawberry Shortcake and Curious George.
Dora continues to be the pick of my 7 and 5 yrs olds right now.
