“And your hiney will thank you,” repeated Lily with a straight face.
I know, you are probably asking yourself has if I have lost it and what am I even talking about?
Well, let me set up a scenario for you. Recently, my husband put on the HUB channel for my girls to watch Tiny Toons with him, because he loved the cartoon when he was older and thought the kids could watch and enjoy.
Before you judge, we have both watched our fair share of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Disney Princesses. So, he thought he could watch something that was at least G rated that he too could enjoy.
While watching a commercial came on for Strawberry Shortcake. The girls asked if they could watch it. To be quite honest, I watched this show as a kid and even had a Strawberry Shortcake baby doll with matching stroller. This was back in the 1980s and I yet I still remember the doll smelling like strawberries.
But never back then did I imagine that my own girls someday in the future would start watching this cartoon and be (well for a lack of a better word) obsessed.
They request it on DVR all day now that Kevin did DVR five separate episodes. They watch it so much that when recently for Emma’s birthday she was given a giftcard for Toys R Us, she went to the store and purchased the Strawberry shortcake Dollhouse and matching car set. The girls both love it and can sit playing with it peacefully and quietly, except for when they fight over some part of it that they other one wants (yes at almost 3 and also 4 years old sharing is still a hard concept).
Ok, back to the actual show that they have watched so much that it would seem that Lily has memorized and even has her favorite commercial played during it.
How did I find this out?
The other night, she was watching a DVR’d episode, when she starting repeating these little kids in a commercial word for word.
I listened while Lily repeated this little girl explaining to her baby brother all about Quilted Northern and how wonderful this toilet paper truly is. The commercial really is quite cute, because this little girl is giving a teaching lesson to her little brother.
And the last line was the one that I began this article with. Yup, you got it, Lily not even 3 years old proceeded to tell all that was listening (ok, just Kevin, Emma and I), that “Your hiney will thank you!”
Seriously, I guess my kids watch a bit too much of this show for her to be able to repeat the lines in a commercial, but then again please don’t judge, because she is quiet and not whining or complaining.
And sometimes peace and quiet is really a good thing and to be quiet honest my reaction at Lily’s repeating these line was to laugh, because it really was quiet funny to hear these words come out of her little mouth!! I even tweeted about it, because I just couldn’t resist here:
