At our house we're big fans of PBS. The problem sometimes is that there are so many great shows, with only a small allotted TV-time schedule. So we pick and choose accordingly. Also since our children are so small I just write off some of the shows. One of those written off is 'Word Girl'. As a disclaimer, the show is probably very educational, but something I'm not interested in for them now.
Anyhow ... some day, some way, Wes and Kate caught a few minutes of it and now Wes is obsessed. Everyday he insists I put a red dishtowel around his neck so he can be 'Word Girl'. So I said, "Wes, you're a boy, so why don't we call you Word Boy." But he wasn't having any of it. He grabs his horse, puts on his $1 Elmo backpack from Aunt Karen, and runs around the house declaring his super-heroism.
