I keep the TV on the Noggin channel all day. That's the channel that plays preschool shows with no commercials. It's pretty much the old stand bys - Blue's Clues, Little Bear, etc.
Sissy doesn't really watch it much, but there are a few shows she really gets into like Blue's Clues. That's one of her favorites.
As I said, there are no commercials, but there are little bumper clips in between shows - most of these have two cartoon characters - Moose and Zee (a little blue bird).
You'd think I would get enough of these spots during the day. But, there are some that are just really catchy.
One they did last year around Halloween time (but haven't started this year yet) is a song about candy corn. I posted this little clip last year:
It's pretty sad that at night - when I finally have a few moments to myself - that I seek these things out on YouTube.
I just get such a kick out of that little song and it's true: I really don't like candy corn.
Buddy loves it, but then again, what are candy corn but little sugar tepees? Both of my children are like little flies. They love the sugar.
Even as a child, I wasn't a fan of candy corn. Then again, I'm not much on sweets as an adult either. I mean, I like things like cake and sometimes, a pastry. Every so often, I'll get a craving for a Snicker's bar. If I buy the full size one, I cut it in half and really can only consume half at a time. Or, I buy a bag of those teeny square ones and will pop one or two in my mouth.
Don't get me wrong - sometimes I can be a werepig when it comes to the sweets. For example: a person needs to get their sweet tooth on to enjoy the deep fried cheesecake at Mayberry's.
Just don't think I'll be eating candy corn anytime soon. And yes, we do have a bag in the snack drawer because Buddy asked for it. Blech!
