Rock Band Party

There is nothing much more hilarious than a bunch of seven and eight year old boys at a Rock Band party. I'm a bit scared how much my kid (the shirtless one) looks like Scott Weiland.

Eleven Feels Like Zero

What's the difference, really? We have had only a dusting of snow this winter. That's fine. I'm done. I'm ready for spring.

Annoying, But Thank Goodness It's Not Zack and Cody

Our son does not watch a great deal of TV but when he does it seems like it's either Sponge Bob or these two dreadful characters:

Our family is probably tattering the fabric of society even more than it already is because we don't restrict the shows TB watches. Granted, he never strays from Nickelodeon, so it's not like he's stumbling into a bunch of violence or other "adult situations". He is enamored with some irritating shows, though.

Actually, Drake and Josh is far better than that Zack and Cody on the Disney Channel. Even from just overhearing it from the other room I can tell you that program is unwatchable. Thankfully he never latched on to that one.

The other show that gives me the willies is the Fairly Oddparents. I can't get past the grating voices of Timmy Turner and the fairy godparents. It might be a funny show but I refuse to listen long enough to find out.

The good thing is, if I just pick up the remote and change the channel he doesn't fuss at me. So it's easy to divert him to a basketball game or Jeopardy or one of those shows where people fish for crabs or drill for oil.

But when it comes to Nickelodeon, I'm always happy when iCarly comes on. I'm sure it's disturbingly inappropriate for a 7-year-old, but at least I can tolerate it from here next door in the office.
