|I thought this was a Google research contest. :-)
Now I get it.
On a similar note, we've sworn there will be no purple dinosaur things in the house. Will that be possible?

|none in my house yet, but there are quite a few matchbox and hotwheels cars (credit to yours truly). i swear, this kid's gonna get all the toys i always wanted, but never had. right now, it's about 20% stuffed, 20% vehicular toys, and 60% smart toys and books. and he loves the books!
regarding tv, he was ~18 months before he realized the tv as a form of entertainment. now he's only allowed to watch "educational" entertainment: sesame, blue's clues, dexer's lab (ok, dexter's not educational, but i sure do like it).

|Boy do I remember that. Some of the best times I had with my kids when they were young was encourageing them to be kids & just watching/living the world thru their eyes. It genuinly allowed me to experience childhood in a way that I couldn't growing up.
I took the 4 of them to Disney when they were young. Only rule was that they got to set the daily schedule. If they wanted to swim, go to the park, come back & swim, go to the park, go have Ice cream, that's what we did. It was the best vacation I've ever had. They made sure all was fair & that they did things each of them wanted to do & my only responsibility was their safety and going along for the ride, what a ball.
Kids give so many gifts, if you're willing to receive them.

|At the Great Western Bicycle Rally this year, there was a man who built his daughter the most beautiful little road bike. (Teeny little drop bars.....) She was 9 years old, and did her first time trial that day.
Wish I'd taken a picture of it!!
|No purple dinosaur in this house either.||Spinchick|

|How lucky am I that my kid never liked Barney? Her big favorite now is Cyberchase (I think that's what it's called) and Arthur.|
|Good luck with the purple dino . . .||ms|

|My wife and I tried valiantly to keep our house free of purple dinosaurs, Disney characters, etc. However, we were overcome by grandparental gifts and our children's preschool friends. Now that our daughters are 10 and 13, we have even less success. After you watch Clueless or some Mary Kate and Ashley movies, you may yearn for Barney. My antidote -- I let them watch all of the juvenile, bathroom humor laden flicks I like (e.g., Austim Powers, Ace Ventura).|

|I also know all the words to Spongebob, Dexter's Laboratory, Dora the Explorer, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dragon Tales, and a mess of other kid shows, good and bad. Unfortunately, these theme songs stick in my head and important, work-related stuff goes in one ear and out the other.|
