Crisis Averted

OK. Jackson's King's Singers Blackbird" fixation is starting to become a menace. Every time I open my laptop he starts saying, "Bird! Bird! Bird!" until I give in and play it for him. "Blackbird" has officially surpassed "Big Bird" as the ornithological specimen most requested by toddlers in this house.

I turned off the "bird" youtube video to try to actually do something on my laptop this morning. This brought on the requisite tantrum and screams from Jackson. It was getting ridiculous, so I brought out the big guns: "Jackson, do you want to watch Barney?"

"No Barney!!" he screamed, "Bird! Bird!!" (OK, I can't say that I blame him for that particular musical preference.)

In a last desperate plea I asked, "What about Curious George?" His screams instantly stopped and his face lit up. "George!"

Phew. Crisis averted.
