My son, D was pestering me the other morning to "take him somewhere". Which means, the park, the store or anywhere because home was "boring". I told him I was busy, we would go out later and to settle down and watch some cartoon on PBS.
To which I received this reply, "Aww mom, I don't want to watch lame educational programs".
"Lame?" Great, a 5 year old who calls things, "lame". I thought stuff like "lame" didn't come up until they were older. (And when did he learn the word "educational"?) I guess those shows don't cut it after you watch the stuff on Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the History Channel. This is a kid who enjoys watching the evening news. I don't even watch the evening news. I remember being entertained by Sesame Street at his age. When did 5 become 15?
If he thinks life is "lame" now, wait until he hits the big K, the 'Garden, you know, K-I-N-D-E-R-G-A-R-D-E-N.
