Here’s a nice way to start off the new year. With something positive and pure.

Sometimes my Daughter Sofia will cooperate when she’s eating and others we have to bribe her with YouTube.

Her favorite food fellows include The “TB Tubbies” (Teletubbies), Arthur The Aardvark, The Biggles from Kids Songs, Thomas The Train and of course… Elmo.

But her favorite is Mickey Mouse and his Clubhouse Pals Donald Duck, Goofy, Daisy Duck, Pluto, Mini Mouse and the rest. I see the absolute joy and happiness in her facial expressions and it’s thanks in part to the well crafted story lines and animation of Disney that she is so expressive and highly intelligent.

I find I can’t get the Hot Dog Song out of my head. “Hot Dog Hot Dog Hot Diggity Dog”, and the Hop Hop Hop song are my favorites.

While it is a widely held fact that parents should keep their childtens’ exposure to television limited, not so here. And the fact is that I like it too. There’s something about Disney that is like the primary colors, it just feels so right. Unlike so much else on television for kids, the entertainment is pure edutainment.

My wife asks…. “Why are you watching that?”

I just love it!
