Swiper, No Swiping!

As I sit here typing, I can hear the melodious lines from Dora the Explorer floating in from the next room...

If only it was as entertaining as this:

Even though my oldest is 5 going on 6, she still likes this show, and the boys will watch it when the mood strikes. That being said, you can only hear the Backpack Song about 15,814 times before you start dreaming about introducing Backpack to the wood chipper. 

He's always got the munchies

And don't even get me started on that Map guy, I'm pretty sure he buys his info from Latin drug cartels, and plays both sides of the espionage game. It is only a matter of time before his double agent ways put him on the wrong end of a crisscross cut paper shredder.

We know who you are, but who do you work for?

I'm pretty sure Swiper works for the TSA, he is not very good at keeping himself out of sight when planning a heist, and that mask kind of gives his intentions away, kind of like the airport blue shirts that pull you aside for a "random" security check. 
Not exactly Oceans 11 material

"Sir, if you would stand behind this curtain, and then disrobe, we are doing a random invasive security sweep and you got selected".

"We have called in Special Agent Swiper for this task, since he is always wearing his nitrile gloves. Please stand still..."

Oh boy...

Currently, Dora and Co are busy helping Blue Train rebuild his missing train tracks. I had no idea that Dora already completed her studies in railway engineering. 

I feel like I should be designing ships for space flight if she is this good at 6 years old.


I can't wait until we get back to watching Spiderman and his AMAZING Friends! 

While the characters lines may be stilted and corny, at least I don't have to hear Iceman ask questions such as this:
 "Where is Dr. Doom? Do you see him?"

"Kingpin is trying to become a hostile dictator? Saaaay Kingpin! No world domination!"

I don't despise Dora, but sometimes even my oldest asks why they wait so long to talk after asking a question. And while she is figuring out how to get to Big Mountain, our youngest is yelling "BLUE!" as the answer to every question.

Yes Spiderman,

He is.

And he is hiding behind the big tree.


  1. UGH thank you SO very much for the fact that I now have "I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm THE MAAAP!" running through my tired brain now. It'll be your fault tonight when I don't get a good post written. ;)

    Thanks for the laughs!

    1. Hey, it could be worse. Before Dora was discovered by our kids, I would walk around in public humming the WonderPets theme song to myself. But I will take the blame for the lack of good posts if it makes you feel better ;)
