A Confession

I realized today, as I was feeding the boys and watching Maggie enjoy a YouTube episode of Barney, that I would really enjoy being a writer for that show.

I'm serious.

I used to really want to be one of the kids who would get to act totally over the top cheesey and end every song by shouting the last line (I find that insanely hilarious). But now I want to be a writer and come up with the really lame story-lines and figure out how to incorporate all of the same songs in a different order. Cause really, I bet there are only about 40 songs they use and the show has been on for at least 10 years. It's genius, really.

You may have just lost all respect for me. But whatever.

At least you aren't admitting to teletubbies. Now there was a kids show I despised! Yuck, the TV was off as soon as it came on.

I am always just impressed at how well the kids sing (and act). I think it would be cool to be ON Barney (if you're a kid).
