Warning: Mommy Rant!


Can I tell you how much I DISLIKE this little guy. For those of you who don't watch PBS he's Caillou a bald 4 year old with and incredibly whiney voice!  He NEVER gets corrected or punished but he often has an AWFUL attitude!  His father's ALWAYS at home (he never works?)  His parents NEVER loose their temper, raise their voice, or get frustrated. They ALWAYS ask for their children's help, and drop everything to take their children and their friends places?   Talk about a false reality! The worst part is that after Sophia watches him--she thinks the world revolves around her. Out goes the please & thank you in comes the pouting. (oh yeah did I mention Caillou pouts too!)   I work very hard to include my daughter, never raise my voice and come up with fun things to do--but it's much easier with a polite child then a self-indulged one.    If you're going to have a false reality why don't we have a perfect, unrealistic version of a child instead of parents?  Please!

 Sophia & I have found a show we can both watch: John & Kate Plus 8!  They have 6 three year olds (yes I said six) and so she's fascinated by it all.   These parents understand kids will be kids, but they are far more disciplined with 8 then I am with one. I guess you'd have to be.

Amen sister. I cant stand Caillou either, he whines too stinking much! Eric watched one episode and was like "No more". A few times outs, firm "No's!" or even a spanking would do Caillou some good. I like John and Kate, but we dont have the luxury of cable so I only watch it at other people's house, which is rare. I'm sad! How you holding up all alone?

preaching the to choir...that Caillou is one seriously annoying kid. Not to mention their style totally stinks!
And as for Jon and Kate...been a fan since the beginning...and I think they might be believers?! :)

I recently started watching that show, too. I am fascinated by it. She has verses on her kitchen cabinets and they spoke at a church, so I'm sure they are believers... other things said, too...

I saw Caillou for 5 minutes one time and remember these exact things from those 5 minutes alone, so AMEN!

Amen, Caillou and Barney are for the birds! Id rather eat chalk.

We LOVE Jon and Kate, aren't they so funny?? Those kids kill me, so cute. She is a little over the top with her OCD but I think you have to be with that many kids. I would drown in a sea of laundry and tears!

Oh, and they are believers, Im sure of it.
