It's a mixed blessing

Will has recently been paying more attention to TV. In Sunday School they play a DVD and there he met Barney. He LOVES Barney now. He asks to "watch Barney" all the time and says "Barney gone?" when the TV is off. He says "we're a happy" and "big hug" from the I Love You song. He can also say "Baby Bop". I never have been a Barney fan but the big purple (magenta? fuschia?) guy is growing on me. And since Will is usually non-stop all day long except for his nap, it is nice to have something to catch his attention for 20 or 30 minutes. But I don't want him to turn into a TV zombie. So for now, it's a mixed blessing.

Oh, we love barney too! :). I had mixed feelings too but he sings and I like that it's got real kids singing too! Plus he loves dinosaurs! I don't know why parents don't let their kids watch it!

I used to be a Barney hater, but when my little girl fell in love with him, I hate to admit that I did too :P But, watching her get so excited about something melted my heart. Plus, while Barney might be a little on the irritating side, he does teach them lots of good things! She is three now, and over the Barney phase, and sometimes I kinda miss it!
