The Band of Bloggers


I am delighted to have been asked to join PBS Kids Sprout (television for preschoolers) Band of Bloggers.

They created this adorable logo, and isn't Band of Bloggers a kick-butt name for us? I've been wearing my logo tee shirt a lot and Shark Boy wanted to know if it was a real band. I said no, and he was like, "Good, cause we're not rock-n-roll people," which I thought was an interesting observation.

Anyway, look at this Program Guide -- so much good stuff you can let them sit in front of the TV all day! I'm kidding, but it is hard to decide.

Big Sprout News Flash: The Wiggles are moving to Sprout. Shark Boy loved The Wiggles and we would sing that Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car song all the time. (You can't get that little ditty out of your head now can you.) I'm going to be very happy to introduce Bear to The Wiggles, and in a big way because they are touring again and we are going to see them. Squee! I will be giving tickets away here as well!

The Sprout folks have been awesome (you can follow Ken, the Sprout Dad, on Twitter) and they sent chocolate, so I believe they understand what appeals to the moms at least.

So I'm brushing up on my feathersword technique and eating chocolate, in preparation for the return of Anthony The Wiggles.

There are 15 bloggers in the not-a-rock-and-roll Band of Bloggers - I'm in amazing company! Check out their sites, all linked up on Sprout for Parents. And in the comments, tell me which Wiggle is your favorite. I swear I won't tease you if it's Jeff.

You're not rock 'n' roll people? Could have fooled me.

Very cool...for a non rock band!

Anyone who sends chocolate is okay in my book.

I've never seen the Wiggles...we aren't a Disney house here (That is where they are, right?). We are a PBS or Nick house here. Dora, Diego, Olivia, Sesame Street, Super Why, and Word World are all in our rotation depend on the day/week/mood. Is Sprout a separate channel from regular PBS because I don't recognize anything other than Sesame Street on the line up.

mo. - heh. Nothing gets past that kid I tell ya.

TUC - We will totally ROCK, in that Mom of Preschoolers Non-Musical way of course.

Michelle - The Wiggles left Disney and came to Sprout.

Y'all - go to the web site and click the Request Sprout button if Sprout isn't in your area yet.

Oh, man. I'm never invited to be in any gangs. Or bands. Darn it!
