I confess, I find the Dora and Diego kid shows to be highly annoying. I won't say anything else about that in case you happen to love them, and giddily sit down with your child to learn spanish... or something, and clap your hand to all the *shudder* songs.
It's okay. You're secret is safe with me.
Despite the fact that the Dora and Diego characters supposedly try to involve the watchers by asking them questions and giving them instructions on how they can help, none of my children have ever spoken back to the fictional characters before.... until Alayna.
Yesterday after chores were done, Alayna was watching her new favorite show - Diego. *cringe*
At one point during the show, Diego says, "Everybody stand up!"
Alayna stands up excitedly and says, "I am!"
Diego continues, "Stand up, stand up... Alayna interrupts and says clearly annoyed, "I said.... I. AM!"
Diego, "...stand up!!" Alayna, "Grrrr...... I am already-YA!" *humph* She then folds her arms across her chest, pulls her face in a huge frown, spins on her heel and starts to stomp away.
Then Diego bursts into song and Alayna comes running back to participate.
Should I be worried?
