Over Thinking Children's TV



Although my friends might disagree, I think that before I had children, I used to be able to hold a reasonably intelligent conversation. Now? Not so much. My husband is away with work at the moment and what do I find myself asking him when he contacts me? Not have you had a nice day? Has work gone well? How was your flight? No. I ask him my most important query of the day.

Is Doc McStuffins a doctor or a vet? 

The problem is that big man wants a "Doc McStuffins Day" for middle man tomorrow and I was wondering what to get out for them. For those of you unfamiliar with the Disney Junior show, it's probably best you click away now before I confuse/bore you too much. I am happy with the fact that the mother of Doc McStuffins is a doctor. The little girl puts on her magic stethoscope and her soft toys come to life. There is always a toy that needs her help that usually has some kind of "itus" Often the stuffed toys are animals so I would argue that she is a vet. As my husband pointed out she has treated a snowman, walkie talkie and a CD player so she is not confined to people or animals. Once again I have found myself over thinking the children's TV characters. Maybe I should just be happy that it is firing their imagination. I still think that Postman Pat should be fired and Naughty Norman should have an ASBO though.

I am now thinking that maybe I need to watch the ten o'clock news so that I can worry about more important world issues!

I always hated Norman on Postman Pat!

Also, don't watch the news, it's just depressing, stick to kids programmes it is so much kinder to the nerves.

Hes a fool that uses a helicopter to get a special delivery there on time, which wouldn't have been a problem if he hadn't made stupid mistakes in the first place xx

I wonder how Dr Ranj got his medical degree when he cannot tell that he is treating puppets and has to get a nurse and her helpers to explain all the ailments. Why can't he do it, is he too busy in the mirror trying to maintain his quiff?

Actually, the correct term is "nausea and vomiting of pregnancy".
It is possible to sustain the eating plans because they include five to six daily meals in smaller, healthy portions in addition to one or two
completely balanced meal replacement shakes. There is a 54 percent chance
that you will be able to detect your pregnancy six days before you
miss your period with the First Response pregnancy test.
