Will is not only addicted to pirates, but he is also in love with The Backyardigans,
has been for YEARS.
He (and Emma) first noticed the show on the TV when they were babies and my then 4 year old Keith was watching it and they were in love.They were the only babies that I’ve ever had who even noticed the TV at such a young age, let alone got excited, turned their heads, and would sit fixated on the screen, often wiggling to the music. (SO cute!)
So, of course, it then made complete sense to both Russ and I to throw them a Backyardigan themed 1st birthday party, complete with costumes for their gifts bags and magnets that we gave as party favors.And Will’s love has just grown from there.
While his sister has moved on to greener pastures (aka My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, and even iCarly), Will has stuck by faithfully with The Backyardigans, often being known to recite entire monologues from episodes or singing every single song he’s ever heard in perfect tone and pitch.
Our DVR is currently housing 18 of Will’s favorite episodes and Will’s iPad is home to every season.
But, he loves it and that’s what matters 🙂
And, now, for Ryan, because, you know, he.just.gets.it…
And, after I joined Instagram, my friend Sunday and I had a little tit-for-tat about the fact that I never share pictures of myself smiling 😉
So…….(I know, I have something wrong with me 😉 )
