Kitty Porn

Our TV viewing habits have been totally evolving over the past few months.  Bubble Guppies are OUT.  As a matter of fact, you want to see my kid (the big one) flip out?  Turn it on.  She runs as if you’re about to hose her with alien blood.  What was once a beloved favorite has become to my 3 year old what the IRS is to those of us earning a paycheck.  Who knows why?  All I do know is that it has been deleted from the DVR and we avoid any mention of her former waterlogged  televised BFFs.  Oddly, she still plays with a few of the toys. Anyway, we hardly watch the tube at all now that she’s in school and it’s great. 

That being said, there are times when you need the electric babysitter so you can bathe the other kid, cook dinner, or on those days when weather is too gnarly (or parents are too tired) to go play.

So who out there has seen the ads for Too Cute on Animal Planet?  I confess that I have largely avoided that channel as every time I’ve checked it’s been some kind of “circle of life” show.  You know what I mean.  Where they show the poor gazelle being eviscerated by the big cat.  Or the daddy big cat killing the baby big cats.  I can’t stomach watching some of that and I certainly don’t want to have to explain that to my daughter.  No, Stella.  They’re just dancing.  And look at all of that red paint!  No, no.  She’s not biting.  She’s giving the gazelle a big big kiss goodnight.  Look how tired that gazelle is!  He’s lying down for a nice long nap.  Nope.  I’m not having it.

So Too Cute is a show about cute kittens.  Stella is transfixed.  It’s almost disturbing.  All you hear is “Cuuuuuuuuute!  Cuuuuute kitties!  Oh looooooook.  Cuuuuuuuuuute!”

It is.  Too cute.  Damn you, Animal Planet.

And now some too cute gratuitous Halloween kid pics:

Gotta give the girl credit:  She at least tried to rip out some pumpkin guts.
