Speaking of which, since her Spongebob obsession started, she stopped wanting to eat fish of any kind. I tried to tell her that Spongebob and his friends all eat various kinds of fish, because what else are they going to eat in the ocean? She understood that logic, but still doesn't want to eat fish of any kind. I hate to think what she's going to do if she gets watches the Chicken Little movie.
Today she took a break from the Spongebob obsession to indulge an old favorite of hers--Curious George. It all started when I had her pick an outfit to wear today. I usually pick it out for her, but I thought she'd like to choose. She usually picks really cute things. Not today, though! She picked out an old Curious George shirt that I thought I had given away. So today was all about Curious George! She read all her Curious George books. She played Curious George games at the PBS Web Site. I gave her a chance to watch a movie at home. Instead of picking a great movie like The Wizard of Oz or Wall-E or even Cars, she wanted to watch two episodes of, you guessed it, Curious George! Actually, she watched the same episode twice.
After she was done watching the same episode twice, she pretended to be an orangutan that was in that episode for the next two hours. After listening to her make orangutan sounds for two hours, I was actually beginning to miss Spongebob. A lot.
