What the HoLy HeLl...


has happened to cartoons?  As I am sitting here trying to blog my little brain out I have the most annoying ass cartoon drilling in my head. I think the annoying little girls voice is Dora the Explorer ...God I want to punch myself in the face a few times in order to make the madness STOP! I remember when cartoons were entertaining some of the cartoons today just SUCK. I get that they are teaching our kids some basic math and shit but DAMN can someone please tell me WTF has happened to the good old fashioned smart ass bitchiness of Daffy Duck and the dress in drag of Bugs Bunny? And how can we forget the lovable duo of  Tom & Jerry that crazy cat and mouse? Or the devilish plots to get the Road Runner with Wylie E. Coyote. I mean you though the stunts on Ridiculousness was bad how about checking out some of the things the coyote strapped on his back in order to get the quick ass body of the Road Runner?   Man even when we were learning from our cartoons we had the kick ass rock n roll style of School House Rock......I am Bill I'm only a Bill and I live on Capital Hill...Baby. Dora and Diego are annoying. I can only watch so much of the Mickey Mouse Club before I begin to cuss out both Mickey and Minnie. If I watch Cinderella one more time this week I will lose my shit......and for god's sake please someone get rid of the Backyardigans I can't listen to one more of their songs without wanting to puke. I have not problem admitting that some of the kids today have gone soft because of these cartoons.

 It might harsh but all you moms out there know what I am talking about when your little one goes through the phase of all cartoon all the time.  Oh yes I am one of the EVIL moms who allows her little darling to watch TV....OMG OMG someone call CPS. This bad mommy is warping her child's little brain. Listen dolls my daughter says please,  thank you and may I...she helps me with chores - feeding the dog, loading the dishwasher and helping me wash her clothes as well as wanting to know how to make her bed I have to take advantage of the help now because in a few years she will not lift her finger to help and will not want to be seen with me so you take what you can get when you can get it!  She takes a bath when I tell her and most of the time she listens unless she disappears to ToddlerLand which most 2 plus year old tend to do.  So if watching TV once in a bit is something my child wants to do have at it.  She is not going to turn into a serial killer because of it.  I might be getting old bitching about cartoons but I remember them being a whole lot more fun and interesting. It is like the music of today it has become stale, boring and digitized. Right now I am showing my little one the cartoons from Loony Tunes and Scooby Doo and she is loving it. I will show her how it was done in the "olden" days.

I am with you MB!! Politically correct crap from the minds of education phd's instead of people with talent. 20 minutes of crap all designed to teach your kid to coutn? Like they won't learn to count without the friggin cartoon. Or 1/2 hour of rubish to teach a two YO to SHARE! SHARING is not a concept a two YO can handle. THank God for youtube so the grand toddlers can still get some old fashion cartoon violence and somehow they don't want to turn me insideout with a stick of dinomite!

We watched one the other day that was about not hitting your friend. It was just terrible. The plot was terrible. The song was terrible. It was all terrible.

Oh man, there are some that I just don't allow under any circumstances. Like the one with that giant green guy alien looking thing??? Just shoot me now. You might think I'm crazy, but we've started watching Little House on the Prairie. We cuddle up and I secretly think I like it more than she does! I guess I'm a nerd.

You guys, this is clearly not Michael Kors’ first time at the rodeo, even if it was his first time on safari. Kors used a recent trip to a luxurious South African resort in the middle of a nature reserve to power the Michael Kors Spring 2012 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, and if you’re having a hard time seeing the theme in these photos, then you might want to get your eyes checked.michael kors satchel

You know what? I let Aidan watch TV, watch YouTube, play video games. He's in honors classes, he's polite, and he's generally a great kid. So I refuse to let anyone make me feel guilty about letting him do those things. You gotta do what works for you, MB. I feel like a lot of people who say "*I* don't watch TV" are saying it to Make a Point or something like that. Personally, I *don't* watch a lot of TV, but I watch what I like. And I stare at the internet all day so who's to say what's better or worse? Also, pink is AWESOME! Ride that wave! :)

Feeling the love......
