That brings me to my next concern...Comcast Cable's "On Demand" feature. I LOVE "On Demand." There are lots of wonderful kids shows that my son enjoys watching. He is also a really big fan of many of the Animal Planet shows and he will watch them and learn so much. We often follow up with our own research on various "extreme," "weird" or "freaky" animals that he learns about and it's great. What's not so great is the previews Comcast shows as you are trying to choose the program your child wants to watch. There's shooting, violence, cursing and potty humor that is just not humorous at all. I haven't contacted the cable company yet to see if there's any way to turn off the previews (you know there won't be) but I do want to at least express a concern that it's inappropriate.
One final thing that's pretty funny and just proves that I have to really watch what The Son hears is our conversation in the car on the way home from work last night. I was listening to my classic rock station and The Steve Miller Band's song "The Joker" was on.
"I'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a midnight toker."
The Son: (singing along) "I'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a midnight... talker? Talker Momma? Is that what they say?
Me: (thinking) Ummmm, yep! That's it...midnight talker!
Sorry... just can't explain "toker" to my kid just yet. Have a great day everyone!
