The Computer Hog
Does anyone else have a child who likes to watch Sprout?

It was just called PBS when I was little, but now it has this fancy smancy name.

I am not happy with Sprout.

Oh, sure, I love Barney and Sesame Street just as much as the other guy. I'm not mad at them.

It's the Sprout Management that I need to speak with.

Will you please stop reminding my child every 30 seconds that she can go on sproutonlinedotcom and play fun games, color her favorite characters, and play paper dolls with her favorite Sprout friend.

Aaaaaagggggg!!!!

You see, Sprout Friends, sometimes I actually need to be on my computer and I really really don't like having a 5 year old yell over my should every 10 seconds that it is HER TURN and she has important stuff to do on the puter.

Oh, how she loves her Sprout friends. They have taught her how to manipulate the mouse quiet well. She has even started reading some of the words so she can navigate the whole site ALL BY HERSELF. Words like click here, clear page and print are all a part of her world now.
Aww, nothing like a little computer time with your morning coffee and donut. Oh, I'm sorry, I meant cup of milk and cheerios.
You would think the people at Sprout would at least throw in a few free ink cartridges for all my trouble, wouldn't you?

LOL! I have the same problem except mine is a 7 yr old and the website is jellytelly.com She's constantly asking, ever so politely, "It's my turn to play!" lol

Hmmm ... We still have PBS, and my kids play at pbskids.org.

My son loves PBS and PBSkids.org. We have two computers. I have to admit though that he learned a TON from their computer games, while at other sites (like nickjr) the games are more just fun and less educational.

:) She's cute in the photos!

How funny! We're not there yet with Li'l Empress. And the other two little ones would rather play Wii than on the computer. So I can happily waste hours without anyone yelling over my shoulder for their turn still!
