While we were in Michigan, we made a little discovery -- and it was a discovery of great importance in the life of Callie J. Green. That's right. The Backyardigans. Maren has mentioned before in her blog how much Leah loves the Backyardigans, but we had never ventured that way, until Michigan that is. My parents have limited channels, so the key times we turn the tube on...there was nothing on. Bummer. I let Callie watch a little bit while I get Sammy ready for bed -- first thing in the morning she watches a bit to wake up. I know. I know. There are better things we could choose to have her do -- but I choose not to choose those choices because...gosh darnit, I'm tired. So, anyway. I noticed that our backyard friends would be on, and did a little DVR action. Robot on a Rampage. It was a full hour long. And I have to tell you, I don't know how many times we watched that. She LOVED it! I mean, looooovvved it. She would giggle as soon as Austin (the robot repairman) started dancing and she knows all the songs.
These backyard friends, well, I became fond of. They are kind, imaginative animals that really have good, catchy songs...and their dance moves are impressive for cartoons. So, Callie's allowed to watch The Backyardigans. She has our go-ahead on that. For the plane ride back to California, I picked up a DVD at Walmart and I have no idea how many times she's watched it. 15 minutes here...15 minutes there. Hey, at least Caillou's out of the picture now.
