When my kids watch cartoons on some channels it is more like they are watching toy commercials with a little clip of the cartoon every 5 minutes. Instead of the other way around. It has gotten so much worse lately! Probably because it is coming upon the holiday season. I understand that. But give me a break. It is seriously so annoying!
When Shout sees some thing she likes on a toy commercial (which is everything) She has this natural reflex that makes her scream out “I want that.” My kids are not greedy I don’t get them everything they want by any means. But just listening to her say it every 5 seconds makes her sound like Violet Beauregarde from the movie Charlie and the chocolate factory!
As of a couple of weeks ago Squeal was sitting next to Shout watching the brain washing commercials when I heard her say something. I did not believe it at first but as another commercial came on it was clearer. She said “I want that”! My one year old’s first sentence was I want that! I have to say it was adorable, but disturbing at the same time.
The Umpire and I are cutting down on our monthly budget and decided to cancel our cable. I am actually really looking forward to those channels not being an option anymore. I love that public television does not have toy commercials. I also prefer the cartoons on those channels as well. Woohoo for no more screams of I want that coming from my sweet girls!
What makes you go AAAAAGH?
