TV fun with the toddler-Mamalicious Monday


#1 is now obsessed with Olivia on Nick (thanks Holly and Rachel).

But, really, it is quite funny. And, we can tolerate it, which is good. And it isn’t “dumbed down” like some other shows. You know the ones with the long pauses for the kids to answer questions. Uggghhh.

So, back to the TV obsession. Olivia is definitely #1, followed by Mama Mirabelle’s Home Movies, and Curious George.

After what seemed like a very long tv marathon (2 maybe 3 shows) Friday, I turned it off. I even told #1 we would bake cupcakes. She could have cared less.

My little sweetheart declared over and over that she wanted to watch Olivia. Dang it, now that catchy little theme song is stuck in my head.

I: I want to watch Olivia, mommy.
Me: No, #1, we’re going to make cupcakes.
I: I want to watch Olivia.
Me: No.
I: I want to watch Mirabelle.
Me: No.
I: Did you say ‘no’ mommy?
Me: Yes.
I: That’s not very nice, mommy!

What? My two year old just told me that it’s not nice to say no. Crap. I’m now learning my manners from a two year old.

And, all I could do was laugh because she was so dang cute when she said it.

Mamalicious Monday is brought to you by the Gift Closet. Head on over and check it out.

    I had my first experience with Olivia when I was watching my friend’s little girl last week! And I too could tolerate it well! I even laughed with her!

  26. She must be taking her manners lessons from Austin…. today he told me that I wasn’t very nice because I wouldn’t let him have candy before lunch.

    Please read my blog and pray for little Gracie. They really need our prayers today.

    Thanks, Lura
