Happy Veterans Day

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. I'm not sure if I'll be raking leaves, visiting family, or just hanging out somewhere with the kid and the husband. I hope I'm doing something productive. The weather forecast is supposed to cooperate with being outside. We may not see a parade or do something actively to show our support for Veterans, but I carry the thought in my heart anyway.

Preschool is closed so I won't be at work. I guess that goes without saying maybe.

Hope you all have a good day.

Sprout again

A very professional sounding woman from PBS Sprout called me today and called me a liar. She said that Sprout has always carried toy company advertising in the "fourth quarter" and that the ads are aimed at the parents, not the kids. I say Bullshit!

Sorry. Those ads are aimed at the kids and I don't care what Sprout says. I asked her if she had a preschooler at home, but she didn't want to go there. I don't blame her. In the end we did not agree, and she held her ground that Sprout is not going against their policies and has carried toy ads for the past 4 years. Maybe they have had those ads for the past 4 years, but my daughter wasn't in preschool then and we weren't paying attention.
