Help, My Girls Like Dora!
I have been dreading this day for so long. I'm not a big fan of kids shows. There probably aren't many parents who are. But there are some shows that I find less annoying then others. Dora is one that annoys me. I know she shouldn't - she's a small kid with a huge head that couldn't possibly really be held up by her body who runs around unsupervised saving the world with a monkey named Boots. It should be a cute show - it is sometimes - Caleb LOVED Dora for a long time. Now the girls like her too - I was hoping this day wouldn't come.
I think it's the repetitive nature of the show. After a while I just want to say "enough already! They got it!"
The map sings, "I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm THE MAP!" Really? What else would he be? He's a rolled up piece of paper!
Then he tells Dora over and over and over where she needs to go. "river, forest, purple mountain; river, forest, purple mountain; river, forest, purple mountain, etc." Then Dora asks us where we have to go. Was she not listening?! Why is the map telling us anyway?
And can Dora really save anything? Ugh, the things we mothers go through just to make it through the day :)
What shows annoy you?
