too much

How do you know when your two-year-old has seen too many episodes of Dora the Explorer and Go! Diego, Go!?

#10. When she wants me to follow her somewhere, she says, "Come on, Momma! Vaminos!"

#9. She yells "Animal in trouble!" and "rescues" all the animals one by one off the floor and onto the table. (I use the term "animals" loosely. This is not just stuffed animals. It basically includes anything that is not too heavy for her to lift.)

#8. She insists that you call her Diego.

#7. She carries around her special camera, "Click", in her armpit. (Yeah. I don't know where the armpit thing came from.)

#6. Her longest sentence is, "Use our special camera, Click, [to] help find the animal in trouble." (And she can say it all pretty fast!)

#5. She counts all sorts of things at the hardware Spanish.

#4. She is frequently demanding Travis and I do things in Spanish - salta, parada, vaminos, suba, etc. Most of the time, we have no idea what she is saying.

#3. She can't go up our stairs without holding someone's hand because they are too slippery. Even her Ikea train has to put on it's "sticky wheels" to go over the slippery hill. Thanks, Dora.

#2. She will pull items out of her toy baskets and ask us one thing at a time "Is this the flashlight?...No!...Is the flashlight?...No!...Is THIS the flashlight?...Yes!"

#1. And the number one reason I know Anna has seen it too much is because I know all the words to all the songs!

I love it! She has impressed me with her Spanish counting several times. I think my favorite is that click is carried around in her armpit. She never forgets to put it back in her armpit after using it either.

He has better songs. And by saying that, I lose just a little more of myself to this mommy thing. (My 2-year-old doesn't call her just Dora, she calls her D-d-dora. Thanks, theme song.)

The other day, I handed my daughter a map of Disneyland to get her excited for it, and she looked at the Matterhorn and said, "Tall mountain!" (And I'm sure you can hear Dora saying that.) :)

This is priceless! I laughed so hard at this post. My Seth, who is 2, does this but with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Everything is "we need a mouse-ka-tool to open the cereal box", or he asks me all time "wheres your handy helpers mom?" Gee son, I don't know...maybe you should be my handy helper. Too cute!

The music you listen to in your beats headphones should capture all the sonic details the artist wanted you to hear. But normal headphones can't deliver the rich, full sound in today's digital audio tracks, especially not smaller, lightweight headphones. But Solos high performance headphones, which are designed for today's active lifestyles, deliver sound so real, you'll be amazed it's all coming from something so compact and portable. I think you like music,our monster beats solo HD help you feeling relax now.
