Morning Glory...

The following is dialogue from this morning. This all stems from my daughter's most recent TV program of choice "The Wonder Pets." And although I do celebrate the fact that it teaches compassion for animals, I do not like the Pets' diction. Also, I get that we are supposed to teach our children to accept all abnormalities. Although, when the program boasts that it illustrates phonological awareness, I think speech teachers are sobbing as the "serious" problem at hand is occurring.

LF: Are you crazy or something?
Me: You know what, I think you need to stop watching the WP. I do not like that show.
LF: You don't have to watch it mom, all you have to do is turn your head when it's on and then you won't see it.
Me: Well maybe we just will not watch it at all.
LF: Or maybe I could watch and you could turn you head and not watch.

Oh and her new found joy in life...Talking back to me!
Any help would be appreciated. We are getting in shouting matches everyday.

It just gets worse. Sometimes I feel like a 13 year old has infiltrated O's body and I have no idea how to handle it....
I do think, however, that somewhere our mothers are laughing....
