What Are They Teaching Our Children?

•February 10, 2009 • Leave a Comment

So, my daughter, Allison, was watching a cartoon called Ni Hao, Kai-Lan. Its a kids educational show on Nick Jr. featuring a little Chinese girl named Kai-Lan. It’s not unlike her counterpart Dora The Explorer, where the kids are entertained and educated about foreign languages at the same time. Today was a little strange. As I was surfing the World Wide Web and listening to the show off in the distance something caught my ear.

Here is a video of it. You can barely see my little girl sitting in front, but she’s there. Try to see if you can catch what I heard. Now, I know what you all are going to say, “Madbox, you shouldn’t allow television to babysit and teach your children.” Well, I assure you I don’t. She has a few shows she loves and this just happens to be one of them. Anyway, watch the video.

Small Children Hate Robots In Fake Fur?!?

So, Sunday was my cousin’s daughter’s birthday party. And it was, where else, Chuck E. Cheese Pizza. Everything was great and the kids had a wonderful time.

For those of you that don’t know, Chuck E. Cheese is a kids-based pizza restaurant. They have amusement-type and video games the kids can earn tickets and turn them in for cheap plastic prizes. This is mainly so the parents can get their kids out of their hair for a bit, or even have some fun of their own if they want.

They also have an animatronic animal band that sing and play fake instruments. In theory its a great idea. Continue reading ‘Small Children Hate Robots In Fake Fur?!?’

Peyton Manning is arguably the greatest Quarterback to ever play in the NFL. I think if this is his dream, us as football fans, should help support his dream. Who’s with me?

CHD Awareness

So, everyone knows that Valentines Day is next week. But how many of you know that it’s also CHD Awareness week? Better yet, how many of you know what a CHD even is? CHD stands for Congenital Heart Defect. Basically any baby born with a problem related to their heart has a CHD. Every year, for one week (Feb. 7 – 14), communities around the country try to raise awareness for these defects.

I don’t bring you this information as an outside observer, I have first-hand knowledge. My youngest daughter, Allison, was born in 2005 with HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome). During her development in the womb, something caused the left side of her heart to not fully form. Doctors still don’t know what causes it and there are only three options after birth.

It’s time again for another excerpt from my book.

Would you rather…

Bang your funny bone five times in a row until it’s not funny anymore

or

listen to somebody scrape nails down a chalkboard for 20 minutes

THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE FUNNY BONE
The funny bone is actually the ulnar nerve, a long nerve that runs from the spinal cord in you back all the way down to your fingertips. At your elbow is the one place where there’s no muscle or fat protecting it. Hit your elbow and the ulnar nerve slams against bone. OUCH!

A CLASSROOM JOKE
Teacher: Geroge, go to the map and find North America
George: Here it is!
Teacher: Correct. Now, class, who discovered America?
Class: George!
