Deja vu vu vu vu vu vu vu

One of the things that has made it to our daily weekday routine is PBS Kids. We wake up, dress the kids, feed them and they watch PBS kids, before we cart them off to school or daycare.

The kids automatically know that if Caillou is over, it means they are late and dad and mom are going to get worried and will probably drive like maniacs. Their time sense is infact derived by the end of Caillou and the beginning of Curious George! Jr. is just learning to tell time and the little one has no idea about clocks, but still declares "ees eight ooooooooclock!" when she sees the publice support ad!

San and me were very tired on thursday with work, trying to get tax documents in order, cranky kids... in short, a slightly out of control day. We went to bed late and the entire family woke up half an hour late on Friday morning. It was also dark and gloomy outside with a slight drizzle. The kids were still sleepy and tired when we put them on the couch in front of the TV.

For some strange reason, PBS had a re-run of the previous day's episode. (Must have been!).

Jr.'s eyes suddenly lit up when I switched on the TV and she said

"Daddy, we are back in Thursday morning!"

I did not understand what was going on and said "It is friday already. Eat your cheerios"

Then her surprise turned to fear and she said "Look around daddy! we are back into thursday".

Apparently, we were all wearing the same clothes we wore the previous morning as well.(except for Jr. herself who had changed) and the TV was playing the same thing, so naturally Jr. was worried! Apparently, PBS not only defines 8 o'clock, it also defines day of the week!

I spent a full five minutes on a busy weekday morning convincing my daughter that we had moved into Friday.

Never thought the monotony of our daily lives would cause "day of the week" confusions for our five year old.

Explained to her that PBS is probably playing off a DVD player or a laptop! Had to compare it to her watching the same episode of Toddworld a few hundred times on DVD, or their watching youtube videos every evening. Jr. finally understands the concept of Re-runs on TV!
