Proud Parenting Moments II

On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad it is to let your kid think the Elvis Channel on your Sirius radio is the kiddie channel? I changed the radio station at my three year old's request and Hunk of Burning Love was playing and, seriously, isn't that more fun for all of us than some stupid Wiggles song anyway? So I kinda sorta stopped the dial and kinda sorta let her think that was the kiddie channel.

Ok. Fine. So I didn't just let her think that. I actually answered "yes" when she asked if it was the kiddie channel. I know. Not great. But, see, she was already clapping and laughing. So she liked the song. And if I had told her it wasn't the kiddie channel, well, let's not even lie to ourselves that she would have agreed to like it even one more second. Because she asked for the kiddie channel. And if it's not what she asked for it is by definition less than acceptable. And it was early. And who needs the sky to fall right there in the car first thing in the morning. And, honestly, I was pretty tired yesterday. So my judgment was impaired by fatigue. So it's not really my fault. Because I'm a good person. And this was an isolated incident. And it won't happen again. Or at least not right away. And, Santa's a much bigger scam anyway. So there.

I don't think that's bad at all. It's called brilliant parenting! :)

Thanks. Two days later Beast of Burden by The Rolling Stones was playing and I was very, very tempted to do it again. Luckily she got distracted by a Rice Krispie Treat and forgot to ask about the kiddie channel.

On a 1 to 10 scale? Couldn't be worse than a 2. Could it?? I've done similar things and I refuse to accept that it could possibly be worse than a 2. I think allowing your child to grow up with a Wiggles addiction would be MUCH worse - at least an 8 or a 9. Probably a 9. We call the Wiggles 'The Cult of Primary Colors and Repetitive Song' at our house. In fact, you were actually doing your daughter a favor. That's got to be at least a +6 on a 'Responsible Parenting Scale' somewhere...

Yeah, I'm sure the Wiggles are nice guys and all but they mostly annoy me. Some of the music on the kiddie channel isn't bad though. Lauri Birkner I think her name is did a very pretty version of Oh, Susanna that has my daughter and I still singing the song days later.
