Nickelodeon Has Smiled Upon Me Today

Dear Nickelodeon/Nick Jr.,

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my exhausted heart.

My kids have been absolute nightmares all day long. It took me two hours to get Claudia dressed this morning. Then the doorbell rang and it was DHL bringing me this:

Dora_spongebob_nick jr.

Your timing could not have been more perfect. My children saw this and were falling all over themselves to be well behaved. Suddenly “NO! AAAAAAAAAH! WAAAAAAHHHHHHH!” became “Mommy, may we please watch Dora and the Mermaid? Dora is my favorite. Oh, I love Spongebob. Why, sure I’ll put some pants on. Which pants would you like me to wear today?”.

Thank you.

Your #1 Fan,

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

  1. Wait, Nickelodeon just sends you free stuff? How do I sign up for such a gig?

  2. The Rugrats DVD has the same effect on my best friend’s nephews, I noticed.

  3. I’ll need to finagle a copy of that Dora one. And I hate the days when even getting them dressed is a project. Doesn’t bode well for the rest of the day…but glad Nick Jr. turned yours around!

  4. Ha! I don’t care what anyone says, TV is an excellent babysitter and disciplinarian.

  5. Scary what will turn them into good little girls and boys. My son is grounded from video games and computer today. I bought puzzles. He is not impressed.

  6. Which organ do I have to sell to get on that list? I’m on Day 2 of World of Poop Tour. I don’t know WHAT they’re feeding them at school, but I need to go slap somebody.

  7. I love when the mail man remembers to bring something for the kids. Today he brought two pumpkins and some free credit cards. What more could a couple kids ask for? Well, sure, I guess they ask for Nickelodean DVDs.

  8. Rock on! Nick has come through for me on me occasions. I worship Spongebob.

  9. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    This feels like a safe place to ‘out’ myself as a SpongeBob fan. I’d totally put pants on if I could watch SpongeBob. Not so for Dora, though. That stuff’s for kids.

  10. All hail the power of Nick.

  11. All hail Nick.

  12. I’m glad that Nickelodeon has that sort of power in someone else’s house!

  13. You are a lucky, lucky woman. May we get some copies over here at Chez PunditMom? 😉

  14. Niiiiiiiice.

  15. Isn’t it great to feel like you have power over your kids sometimes? Kid compliance is always a welcome thing. And with twins, well…you deserve some quiet time provided by Dora.

    And dear Nick rep sending Sarah goodies – please send us some, too. I have a Nick Jr. loving 3 year old and the need for peace in my house. I can offer reviews and my eternal thanks.
