Mommy, I’m Writing A Post!

I was writing a post when Phillise went to get her Barbie laptop and informed me that she was going to write a post also. Of course she can’t type, especially not a post. The laptop isn’t real, but it’s so cute that she thinks that she can and she is going to try whether she knows how or not. Isn’t that the cutest thing? I must be doing something right. My baby wants to be like her mommy. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.


Did PBS Hear Me?

Some of you may remember my post, entitled “Shame on you PBS,”where I blasted PBS for airing shows like Teletubbies, Boohbah & Barney. Well, it seems as if they heard me. (I know that they really didn’t). They have come out with a new show called “Word World.”


I wrote about an opportunity to preview it in another post entitled, “More reading lists,” in which I linked to another site, Well, this is that show.

I signed up back then and got the DVD the other day. It had been a while, so I had almost forgotten what it was. Phillise & I watched it. We were pleasantly pleased. I am so proud of PBS for going back to their old ways. Is there a new program director at PBS? I hope so. I also hope that this is the first of many great shows to come.

The characters in the show, Dog, Bear, Cat, Pig, Sheep, Duck, Ant & Frog are wonderful. They are made up of the letters in their name. Words are the stars of the show. They come alive. There is one such instance where kangaroo delivers a box. When she takes the b o x out of her pouch and sets it down, the letters turn into a box. I love this show. I am really looking forward to watching it with Phillise. I highly recommend this show.

It gets *****/***** stars.

Thank you PBS for bringing out a quality show!
