I'm knocked up with my 3rd child. I hate being pregnant and am sick the entire 9/10 months.
Because of this, I am apathetic about my kids TV consumption.
They have been watching SOOOOOO much TV these past
I still feel like I am an awesome mom because every once and a while I make them watch shows about smart people stuff, like Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ultimate Animal Fights. I also let them out of their kennels once a week.
But.... we need to talk about Netflix.
I love Netflix. I love how cheap it is.
We don't have cable or normal TV, so Netflix is all we use.
I love that there a a ton of wholesome kids shows.
I love that I can sit my kids in front of the TV for hours at a time without annoying commercial breaks.
I don't need my kids to be bugging me to buy the latest sugar cereal and Nerf guns.
However, there are a few shows that I'm a little concerned about.
Which is unfortunate since I am already concerned about my children in general.
Ryan knows how to turn on any show he wants by himself.
That explains why I walked out and saw a talking cartoon butt on the TV screen one day.
Now, I am a person that can appreciate a well illustrated butt.
However, what I cannot appreciate, is my 5 year old appreciating cartoon butts.
The is a show actually called, The Day My Butt Went Psycho.
It's about a dude who is a junior butt fighter and his butt.... that went psycho.
The butt even has a name, and that name is Deuce.
For those of you that are as well-versed in all things poop, Deuce is another name for the number 2.
The number 2 is also a common nickname for poo. As in #1 is pee and #2 is poo.
So the butt's name, Deuce, means poop.
It's actually pretty clever.
But ultimately, I have way too much poop and butts in my life right now.
Then there is a little animated show called StoryBots.
It's a cute show that is educational and fun.
What concerns me is the freaking weird stuff that randomly pops up while you're watching it.
My kids were just hanging out, tryna learn about animals when this freaky camel song came on and creeped them out.
Were you aware that camels made that sound?
You can see it for yourself in Season 1 Episode 4: Animals and Emotions
I don't need extra creepy things keeping my kids up at night. They already have to deal with images of me throwing up and peeing my pants every day.
You may be surprised to find out that Little Einsteins is another show I have problems with.
First of all, whoever thought of calling a kid show something with Einstein in it is brilliant.
Who doesn't want their kid to be an Einstein?
One day I would like my kids to understand physics and do their hair super sexy.
I was a fan of Little Einsteins until I saw how the red spaceship thing bounces around.
A boner shaped spring. That's how it bounces around. A boner spring.
You can watch this pseudo-porn in Season 1, Episode 5: Pirate's Treasure.
Oh, and there is a coloring page online if you want to cement that reality in your kid's head:
Print it at: coloringsky.com
Or you could buy them this suggestive toy spaceship.
I'm not here to judge you're parenting decisions.
Anyway, I just want all you other negligent moms - who let their kids watch too much TV - to be warned about the potential dangers of Netflix.
Let's just focus on protecting the children.
