Stephen watched “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” yesterday afternoon and was thereafter obsessed with jumping around the living room furniture and swinging his sword wildly, developing his “moves.”
“Mom! Can we start recording Teenage Mutant Turtles so I can watch it every day?”
“No,” I said. “I only DVR shows that are educational.”
“What does that mean?”
“It means shows you learn something from. Like Curious George or Wild Kratts.”
“Oh,” he said. Then, “But Mom! I need to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because it teaches me new moves! And I need to learn how to fight better! It is educational!”
Well argued. However, I don’t think new and improved fighting skills is what I need the oldest of four boys to develop!
