Anti-Barney rhetoric proves to be effective

My wife and I think Barney and Friends is a dumb television show.


Granted we have never actually watched the program, but we can just tell. 

In an effort to keep the show from ever polluting our television, my wife has poisoned my daughter’s mind by making derisive comments about the program whenever possible.

It worked.

When Sesame Street ended this morning and a preview for Barney and Friends came on, Clara pointed at the television and said, “That purple T-rex is yucky!” and then pretended to spit on the ground. “A-puh! A-puh! A-puh!”

I find myself feeling both exceedingly proud of my daughter’s taste in television and a little dirty at the same time.
