Sprout

 I recently got this channel in my  cable package and all I have to say is Where have you been all my life? We all know, not too many things keep a toddler's  attention for more than 5 minutes or  for 5 seconds for that matter, until now.

I absolutely love this channel for 3 main reasons:  Its educational,  Ralphy finds it very entertaining and lastly, the programming is varied , which translates to Ralphy sitting still for more than 5 minutes at a time and if that's  not reason enough to love this channel than I don't know what is.

In the mornings, before school, Ralphy starts his day by watching The wiggles.   He loves them.  He loves to sing and dance to all of their silly songs.  At bed time, he loves watching The good night show, this is my particular favorite because in this part of the show, Nina shows  them the Spanish word of the day and a word in sign language.

 He also loves watching, Caillou and thank God that they have him on demand because they only show him in the middle of the day and right before bed time. I never thought I would say this, but I think his over the Disney channel, shocking I know. There is life after Disney, sorry Mickey Mouse Club house, it was good while it lasted.

Do your kids watch this channel? Do they love it as much as  Ralphy does? Do you love it as much as I do? I feel like I have been living under a rock because I just discovered it, but better late than never  right?
