i'd like to buy a vowel, please!


those were the words i heard coming from the den tonight while i was cleaning the kitchen. that's right, my child is addicted to wheel of fortune. this has happened just this week. he first got a glimpse of it a few nights ago when the weather was so bad. i turned on the tv so i could see the little alert thingy at the bottom of the screen, and wheel of fortune was on. well, now he's hooked. he's asked me a million times in the last 2 days to watch wheel of fortune. unfortunately, it's not on the dvr list with dora and the backyardigans (though i may have to add it soon), so he has to wait until 6:30 to watch it. and believe you me...he does not forget. he acts like a crazy person pretending to spin the wheel and then clap for himself. then he shouts out letters, and he'll throw in an occasional "i'd like to buy a vowel, please!" and, then he'll yell at vanna to go touch those letters! i guess there are worse things he could watch.

the last few days when pat and vanna don't have his full attention, this cute little fireman has been "pouring out the fires" all over my house. apparently, they are everywhere.


and, when he tires of that, he takes a nap. but, not in the bed....oh, no. that would be too obvious. and comfortable. you know, because i paid good money for his bed. and his sheets. and his quilt. so....he sleeps in his window seat. probably dreaming of vanna.

Oh my goodness! A child after my own heart. I love that show! Maybe he and I can go on there during the "friends" week and be partners. You should be proud. He is learning about letters AND using manners: "I'd like to buy a VOWEL, PLEASE!" Yay.
