The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

A fascinating read about the popularity  of Doc McStuffins.

Both of my kids love this show! My son doesn’t seem to care that the main character is a girl. While my daughter loves the songs and thinks it is so cool that Doc McStuffins looks like her.

I love that this show has such a wide appeal amongst boys and girls of different ethnicities. I also find it empowering that the show features a female lead, that is a visible minority.

Doc McStuffins’ father appears to be a stay at home dad and her mother is a doctor. A huge departure from the usual portrayal of gender roles in children’s programs.

I must say that this is a great show for kids and if you haven’t had a chance to see it I highly recommend it.

Souvenirs from Disney World!  My friends took a trip to Florida and brought these back for the kids. Kermit & Animal as mini cars are a huge hit!
