It Was Bound to Happen

Despite the fact that we live thousands of miles away, Lee Anna has recently moved one step closer to becoming a true American preschooler. She has fallen in love with Barney, America's favorite purple dinosaur. No, he's not on the air here, but thanks to the magic of Tivo, Mimi has supplied us with numerous episodes for her viewing pleasure. This morning was the first time she asked specifically to watch Barney. At first I thought she was asking for the "potty," since she doesn't bother to pronounce the "n" or the "t" in the middle of either word. When she realized I was confused, she said "TV" and pointed to help me out. As we listened to them sing, "I love you, You love me . . . " Jason commented that he's never known anyone who actually loved Barney--just lots of people who loved to hate him. I have a feeling we'll be getting to know Barney better than we ever imagined over the next few years. Posted by Picasa
