BFM (Best Friend Martha) sent the girls these adorable chef hats! Time to teach them to cook... or perhaps we will first start with baking. Less oily splatter!
Maybe it is time for an Easy Bake Oven. Do they still make them, you wonder? Yes!! But now it looks like a microwave. What are we teaching our children??
On another note, a coworker today informed me that Sesame Street is available on DVD (very exciting - I loved that show as a kid). He was out shopping, noticed it, and picked it up to check it out. On the cover was a huge sticker proclaiming the following: that parts of the first two seasons of the show are no longer considered "appropriate" for preschoolers.
Here is the label's text: “These early ‘Sesame Street’ episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today’s preschool child.”
So now, of course, I can't WAIT to buy them for the girls. Is it that Oscar isn't allowed to be grouchy? That the streets are a bit too rough? That there aren't many white people on the show?
My generation of parents seem hell-bent on protecting our kids from things that aren't relevant. Just my .02.
