Livvie has 19 episodes of Little Einsteins that she watches. EVERY DAY. To say it's wearing on my nerves is an understatement. I now know all of the dialogue by heart, I can sing every "song," and I even know at the beginning which composer and artist will be featured.
However, lately it seems that Livvie is getting rather sick of them as well. She seems to be making it through 1/2 to 3/4 of each episode before indicating that she wants it off and wants a new one on. How does she do this? By going over to where the remote is and whining. A lot. So I get up, switch to the next episode, and we start all over again. Ok, this is good. Wait, maybe not. Change it please. NOW. Ok thank you. No wait! Etc...
I'm not certain of what to do here, because currently the only other thing she's interested in is the Wiggles. I only have 5 episodes of those saved that she's familiar with and likes, so that takes up maybe 2 hours of the day. And even with those, she knows when each of them is about to end and whines for me to change it to the next one. This cuts 25 minute episodes down to about 22 minutes. It's starting to suck.
I ordered the Disney Princess DVD for her, and my mom bought her The Electric Company DVD while she was here, but I'm not sure how we'll do with those given that there's so much talking involved. She hates talking. She only likes singing. I do have a couple of the Disney sing along DVDs for her which she showed no interest in before, so maybe I'll break those out and see how they fly now. Otherwise I'm at a loss.
Not to say I'll miss the Einsteins, because Lord knows I can't stand them. But they did manage to keep her entertained and occupied for about 6 months, and for that I'm very grateful.
Maybe I'll even try Beauty and the Beast. Oh wait, too much talking... Why every movie can't have a song jukebox on it is beyond me.
