3 Years, 2 Months, 1 Week & 1 Day into Daddyhood

Upon Talise’s insistence, we got the DVD of Barney’s Colourful World Live out of the library yesterday, which she has already watched several times. And inevitably I have had to sit through a couple of those viewings with her. She loves it. The singing, the dancing, the colours, the happy-clappy-cheerfulness of it. She exclaims, she does her very best to copy the moves – although she is a little troubled by the “silly” version of The Wheels on the Bus. We don’t let her watch loads of TV, but it’s good to have something that keeps her occupied and quietish in the mornings. So when we come to the end of the Barney DVD and I ask her what she wants to watch next, she says, “Barney again!” So on it goes again… and on the whole I don’t mind… but I just can’t get used to those freakishly exuberant kids!
