Parent Problems: Stuck

While I'm waddling around New York City this weekend, I'll be bringing you a couple posts I wrote that were published elsewhere!

Imagine this:

Who’s got the power?
The power to read.
Who answers the call for friends in need?

Super WHY!
Super WHY!
He’s the guy, he’s Super WHY!

...stuck in your head all day long. No matter what else you listen to, or try to focus on, it just won't.go.away.

Cooking breakfast? Adventure waits when you’re with Super WHY!
Going for a walk outside? Come along with the Super Readers
Taking a dump? Hip hip hooray, the super readers saved the day! 

As I'm writing this post I cannot, for the ever-loving LIFE of me, make it stop. This song might even be a contributing factor as to why I'm having difficulty falling asleep at night. It just plays on an infinite loop inside my head...

I would normally just turn it off or put on another TV show, but Carina is obsessed with it. When she first notices it is coming on, she squeals "WHY! WHY!" over and over again. And then she remains glued to the TV for the next 28 minutes. Other shows? She couldn't possibly care less. This is the only one she wants to watch.

I've tried distracting her with both Curious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog, but to no avail. Despite her love of dogs and monkeys, she scoffs at their feeble attempts to entertain her and demands "WHY!" I think I'm destined to sing myself to sleep with the Super Why theme or Alpha Pig's ABC song for the foreseeable future...

The things we endure for our children ;)

How about you; is there a TV theme song (or maybe a toy that plays music) that you can't seem to get out of your head?
