Confession: I LOVE The Dinosaur Train!

Ok, so there aren’t very many kids shows that I enjoy watching. I mean, I put them on, because the kids like them, but some just bug the heck outta me. Barney, for instance. I can’t STAND Barney! Too much singing, too much hugging, too much…..too much! The Dinosaur Train on the other hand, still has singing, but not overwhelming, and not the same music with different words each time.

I like the education they put into the show, I like the acceptance of “different” that they teach, and I really like that the parents of the characters are present. I mean, where are those kids parents on Barney….Rugrats….Max and Ruby?

Speaking of Max and Ruby….do they even HAVE parents to take care of them, or are they orphaned? I mean, I know their Grandma lives down the road, but they never even speak of their parents. And Ruby is so MEAN to her brother. Ok, let’s not even get STARTED on that show, cause I despise it more than Barney!

Anyway, The Dinosaur Train is on now, and they are learning about “Solstice Day” which is a Pagan Holiday; one that happens 4 times a year when the season changes, so I thought that was pretty cool. It isn’t often that our religion is spoken about, but this show really does show so many different things. I love that!

So, that is my Mom Confession. I LOVE Dinosaur Train! What kids shows do you like, and why?
