My son (5) and I are "taking turns."  I watch a show, then he picks one, lol.  So his pick was Spongebob.  That didn't fly.  I made him turn it off and pick something else.  He said, "MawMaw (Grandma) lets me watch it."  I said, "Is MawMaw here?"  He said, "No, I have to change it, huh?"  LOL  I was like, "Yes."  So he picked Caillou, which doesn't make me NEARLY as crazy, LOL.  So, now we are watching Cailllou.  I can't wait until my turn so I can have Big Bang Theory back. ETA:  He has NEVER been allowed to watch Spongebob.  This is NOT a new rule as of today because I suddenly don't like the show.  His entire life, DH and I have agreed that it is inappropriate and he is not to watch it.  He KNOWS this rule and chose to break it.  Rather than taking his TV privilege entirely, I gave him the opportunity to find something else.  Not really sure how this post became such drama.  I was sharing innocent Sunday morning fun.  You women are WAY more upset over this than the 5 year old who was the "victim" in the situation. 


LOL You women are crazy. Who knew a stupid yellow sponge could evoke such riot?

That doesn't seem fair. I wouldn't tell him to pick a show then say no watch one I like as well. I'm sure he finds your show highly entertaining.

He does. He's a huge Big Bang Theory Fan. He especially loves Sheldon. LOL
He also KNOWS Spongebob isn't allowed. I dislike Little Einsteins as well but wouldn't make him turn it off. He broke the rules and knew it.
