Parent Problems: Stuck (Sponsor Spotlight)

This is one of the funniest posts I’ve read in a long time. It was written by Melissa, my sponsor from Growing Up Geeky  Because she’s about to have another baby girl, I asked her if it would be okay for me to go through her archives to pick out an entry to share with you. This is the one I picked. I hope you laugh as much as I did!

Imagine this:

Who’s got the power?
The power to read.
Who answers the call for friends in need?

Super WHY!
Super WHY!
He’s the guy, he’s Super WHY!

…stuck in your head all day long. No matter what else you listen to, or try to focus on, it won’t.go.away.

Cooking breakfast? Adventure waits when you’re with Super WHY!
Out for a walk? Come along with the Super Readers
Taking a dump? Hip hip hooray, the super readers saved the day! 

As I’m writing this post I cannot, for the LIFE of me, make it stop. This song might even be a contributing factor as to why I’m having difficulty falling asleep at night. It just plays on an infinite loop inside my head.

I would normally just turn it off or put on a different TV show, but my daughter Carina is in love with it. When she first notices it is coming on, she squeals “WHY! WHY!” over and over again. And then she remains glued to the TV for the next 28 minutes. Other shows? She couldn’t possibly care less. This is the only one she wants to watch.

I’ve tried tempting her with Curious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog, but to no avail. Despite her love of both dogs and monkeys, she scoffs at their feeble attempts to entertain her and demands “WHY!” I guess I’m destined to sing myself to sleep with the Super Why theme or Alpha Pig’s ABC song for the foreseeable future…

The things we endure for our children 😉

How about you; is there a TV theme song (or maybe a toy that plays music) that you can’t seem to get out of your head?
