Wait, what happened?

During the day I don't watch my, as Bear calls them, "Mommy shows".
During the day my kids watch PBS, you know, Sesame street, Arther, Martha speaks, Electric company.... I don't usually watch these shows with them as I am usually busy doing other things, laundry, dishes, reading, writing.... Anyway every now and then part of a show will capture my attention.
For example the other day on Electric company, some of the characters are stuck somewhere in outer space..... I know I don't have time to sit down and watch to see what happens, so I do the next best thing,

I say,
"So what is going to happen Bear?"
"How are they going to get out?"

He'll tell me, and then my curiosity appeased, I will go on with my work.
Thank goodness he is paying attention and has already seen the episode a half dozen times,
other wise where would I be....

Haha! I swear I find myself doing the same thing. Totally uninterested and then I catch an earful and start asking Bella :)

I don't watch my "mommy shows" during the day either. Though, sometimes I'm tempted to turn off Martha Speaks and watch something else!

I totally miss my Mommy shows! Heck, I can't even remember the last time I watched the news!! I DVR a lot of shows I like but I never actually get the chance to watch them. I used to purposely go to the gym between 2-4 pm so I could watch Oprah and Ellen while I worked out.

Yeah now it's all about Sid the Science Kid, Dinosaur Train, and Super Why. And the songs that go along with the shows....OMG, they stay in my head all day long.
