Don't bite your friends?!
So I love Nick Jr. and Noggin. While I like most shows, there are a few that get on my nerves. Yo Gabba Gabba is one of them. I know there are those out there that love it but it is not one of my favorites. Jaxon however, loves it so I let him watch it and that is usually when I bury myself in something that will keep me busy and out of earshot. Today I was cleaning out the laundry room (also known as the I don't know where to put this so I'll shove it in the laundry room room) and as I came through the living room I heard them singing "Don't, Don't, Don't bite your friends". It continued by showing each of the friends eating and doing normal things with mouths while still stressing not to bite your friends. At the end of the song the pink thing said, "I'm sorry". While not a big fan I am intrigued by the way they addressed a developmentally appropriate way of showing stress to an audience that is probably watching. I had 3 biters and have dealt with many others and I always say mouths are not for biting friends. Good job Yo Gabba Gabba people- but I'm still not going to watch you ; )
