Josh, in a very disgusted voice, when I woke up this morning: "How old is this Pingu supposed to BE anyways?"
Me: "What? I don't know, he has a little brother so he has to be at least 2 or 3."
Josh: "Well Zeke and I were watching Pingu and he got KISSED by some girl penguin!"
Me: "Like on the cheek? I don't think that's a big deal."
Josh: "No, it was full beak on beak action, man. You know when he talks and his mouth looks like a trumpet? It was like 2 trumpets."
So apparently my son's favorite show has been deemed "sexual" because on the Valentines episode (which is mostly Pingu trying to make a valentine and accidentally gluing things to his hand) he gets kissed by his card's recipient, full beak on beak.
And yes, despite the fact that our original plan was not not let Zeke watch any TV until he turned 2, we gave in shortly after he turned 1 and now he watches some sort of short cartoon at least twice a week. His favorites so far are Veggie Tales Silly Songs and Pingu. Both are about 5-7 minutes which is about his attention span. I just cant resist the "I'm trying to make dinner and you wont leave me alone" convenience of it, or the even more guilt inducing "What if I play silly songs on youtube on half the computer screen and type on the other half? Then can I stay on the labtop a little longer?"
The growling list of shows I've already decided will melt his brain and therefor cut Zeke off from? Sponge Bob (I dont think he needs to be TAUGHT potty humor), and Caillou (that little boy needs to freaking GROW UP. He's supposed to be 4? He acts worse than Z at times!). Luckily Josh wasnt so disgusted by Pingu that he felt the need to add him to the list.
Zeke watching the dreaded Wiggles while I try to make dinner (talk about brain meltage...they might soon be added to the list):
