Sharky & Bones.

When Felix was first born, I had a list of my own parenting rules mapped out...

1.)  No fast-food, soda, or sugared cereals.  Not ever.  Not from me.  Not from Grandma.  Not from the coolest kid in the play group. 
2.)  There will be no television or movie character themed room decorating or birthday parties.  Not Mickey.  Not Sponge Bob.  Not Winnie the Pooh.  (Super heroes and Star Wars are the exceptions).
3.)  Television will be a rarely watched treat and it will not "babysit" our boy.

There were more... some of which have already fallen by the wayside (thank you, Dr. Ferber).  I'm still steadfast on these top 3...  However, I'm beginning to find an affinity for some of the programming on the Disney Channel in the wee hours of the morning.  In fact, I actually find myself flicking on the television at around 7:30am hoping for a Sharky & Bones sighting while I make the coffee. 

Watch this video if you don't mind humming "drink your tea, crocodile" all day long.

  1. I have broken ALL of your top 3 no-nos. Granted the cereal one, some of the cereals that I viewed as "sweet" are less sweet than some of the granola-ie kind that I like.

    And Dora and her cohorts make great babysitters sometimes. My daughter had learned LOTS from Noggin/Nick Jr. :)
