Bwahahahaha! My kids will pretend they are dogs or cats and meow/bark at me "I'm a dog!" or whatever. I have to refer to them as good puppies/kitties to get any response out of them. As far as the OMG remark, my 3 year old is now doing that too, but I thought he got that from me.

That is really funny. He sounds like such a cute kid. Man I wanted to be first!

I don't get the pleasure of watching Dora too much since I'm at work when it is normally on, but my son is also BIG TIME into Dora. He hasn't taken on the persona of the characters by refusing to answer to anything but a character's name, but he definitely likes to say "Oh MAAAAAN", which is something that you errr Swiper says. It drives my wife nuts that Dora SCREAMS everything. I come home and my wife is screaming at me in Spanish and my son just says, "Oh Maaaannn!" I lead a kick ass life. It's reassuring that I'm in good company with Uncle Bob.

Thanks. My niece runs around yelling, "Swiper! No swiping!" Now I know what the hell she's talking about.

By the way, I came across the Snoop Dogg Shizzolator again and shizzolated your page. HAHA!!!

Thank you for sharing your stories about Andrew with us. He sounds like such a funny kid. You seem like such a proud daddy to him. I do have to say, I really miss "Ask Andrew". That was some funny shit.

One hour of TV a day? Wow, UB, I applaud you. My 3 year old watches more than that. But then again, I am also watching a 7 month old, so PBS tends to be on more than I would like sometimes to keep the 3 year old busy. You will see what I mean if you have #2. Wondering what UB thinks of the Wiggles. They are not allowed in my house per hubby.

My five year old daughter loves Dora, too, but is starting to outgrow it now(that and Barney, thank GOD!). There is a light at the end of the SCREAMING in Spanish tunnel.

My kids have the same video. Heaven forbit i accidentally broke the VCR so they can only watch it at my sisters LOL. If I have to watch Super Silly Fiesta one more time, i was ready to choke my sister for buying them, but on the other hand, when it's raining at said sister's house with no kids, any video will do :) Carrie

kids. Wait until you are in a supermarket and they see a large person and say "Why is her butt in the front mommy?" The best one was when my 2 year old decided to do her business in a display toilet ....... I learned not to let my 7 year old keep an eye on her while I went to get light bulbs! Just wait uncle Bob it only gets worse hahaha.

My wife accidentally borrowed the Spanish version of Dora for my 2 & 3 year old and I swear to you it didn't make a dam bit of difference to them. Even though all of the conversations were in Spanish with a few words of English thrown in there for language acquisition. The kids were just as mezmerized by that latin nursery school vixen as always.

Next week we're going to try it with the Russian version. Nyet svypping nyet svypping!!!

That Dora thing creeps me out. That's all I have to say on this topic...

My favorite quote was when my daughter was about 2. She yelled, "That lady's fat like my Nana!"

It's the shaved head that makes you look shifty.

In my house, a very long time ago, dad was Bluto, I was Olive Oyl, the baby was Sweetpea and of course, #1 son was Popeye. Oh the hilarity at the dinner table when we had to speak in the correct voices and call each other by the "right" names.

When I was a kid, I used to think I was a car, ran around with keys in my hand.On the plus side at least yer kid doesn't think he's a vehicle. lol

OMG can I totally relate to that!! LOL!! I applaud the "one hour" limit on TV. I think there are some sort of subliminal messages pumped through those shows because everyone I know who has a kid that has ever seen Dora has become completely and totally addicted! And frankly, a talking map creeps the hell out of me!

A strange quiet decended upon the household. It took me, oh, perhaps 7 minutes to determine the strangeness was the quiet. Immediately, I went in search of Joel, my 4 yr. old 'phew. I found him in the bathroom, his head in the toiletbowl. ACK! A moment of terror! Then, he surfaced. "WHAT are you doing!" I say.. "I wanted to see where the water was going..." he said. I feel that this is just a precursor to the imaginative mind of marvels of this kid..You know, I've never thought to check out where the water goes..Maybe I've missed some important things in life!

That's hilarious. Enjoy it while it lasts. :) When my son was 2 he called KFC "chicken right" as in " we do chicken right" He kept crying and whining for "chicken right" While everyone is shaking their head , going "what the hell is this kid talking about?" we finally figured it out. Bless their adorable little hearts. That same kid just bought me a huge bottle of Gray goose vodka for my 42nd birthday. *wipe away a tear*
