Wait, Jodi is a sexy black man?


I love me some sad cactus.


Ah yes, pop culture obsession starts early. Nicky's 3.5 years old and is really into Mickey Mouse clubhouse (and really lots of disney) and this new(ish) Oso show. The secret spy panda that is some funky color instead of black and white. What is it? blue and white, purple and white? something like that.

And he just learned about Bakugan this past weekend when we were at my 6 year old Godson's house. That's going to be the new obsession I can tell. I don't think he cares about the game, and probably never will, but he loves popping them apart and closing them back up again.

We're really trying to encourage this "putting things back together again" thing, so we'll probably buy him some of these for xmas.


I work at a toy store, and Bakugan are HUGE sellers for boys from about 4 - 10 or so. I don't get it, but boys LOVE them.


I have suddenly and inexplicably become obsessed with Pokéman -- specifically and bizarrely (and, I guess, retroactively), Mudkip(z).

I am 35 years old, and I have no excuse for this. My 2½ year old has never seen a Pokéman, that I know of, and instead is really into "Ni Hao, Kai-Lan!" (except Kai-Lan is Chinese, not Japanese, so I don't know).

ANYWAY. I do play World of Warcraft, so maybe that explains a lot? I just don't know. I need a drink.


My 7 year old 7 is into all things Star Wars, and has decided he needs (and is quite successful at acquiring) a Light Saber collection. Some are quite awesome, I must say. Additionally - I've finally succumbed to allowing the Bakugan/Pokemon/Yu-Gi-Oh crap into my house; he is pleased that his patience wore mama down.

My 2 1/2 year old loves Gingabell. LOVES. Gingabell. To the average person, that translates to Tinkerbell. Gingabell has 'tude, so I'm okay with that. I'm not allowing the whole princess thing into my house. She also loves Star Wars, because her brother does. I think she knows more character names than I do.


Best intro yet.
Disney fucking princesses.
I tried, people. I really tried. But they got in past the barricades. And they are multiplying at an astonishing rate. Someone please shoot me with your feminist eyeball laser beams. I tried to hold up a mirror and shoot myself but got the cat instead.


Wow, get off the internet for the day to go to a work training and you become a different race and gender. Wow.


@jodifur - Hey, I made Kelly a nerdy band girl, and Sarah was a bloodthirsty alien scientist. I was a skull. And TwoBusy became two dudes in hard hats. I think you came off pretty well.


And KDiddy is the mom from Growing Pains! Gah! Am so sorry that you're married to Alan Thicke, or at least you are on TV.


Jodifur - dunno your black manly name, but I do know that you were a really obnoxious drug-addicted spaz in some movie a while back.


That was awesome.


'never underestimate the power of the wu tang!'


I don't want to sound like a dumbass (God knows I'm great at it though) but.....I'm just wondering who is the mom that says her kid's obsession with In The Night Garden is going to the looney bin? I just have to say, I've watched the clip several times now because of the looks on her face. She cracked me up on a night when I needing some cracking to be done! Thank you =0)


Yo Gabba Gabba. We weren't really trying to hatch an obsession in the 1 1/2 year old but the three older kids were bent on it. I think they liked it and decided they needed an excuse to watch it 6 times a day. Glitter hands, glitter hands, glitter hands, glitter hands. Razzle Dazzle.


@Trish That's Katie, Motherbumper. And I agree, she is so clearly the star of these videos.


She was my favorite PR designer too. And I also can't remember her name.


@DianaCLT-And what movie is that?

@Palinode-not offended by my race and gender change, at all. But I can't remember, was he also an alien? B/c then is could be a trifecta!


I always love these posts - thank you for sharing!
