How I Discovered that My Wife is Brainwashing My Daughter

by doodaddy on October 2, 2008

The animal of the month in our baby animal magazine is “badger.” When we got to its portrait on the back page, Boo immediately said:

“That’s Bucky Badger! I love him so much. He’s really, really good.”

Want to guess where Working Mom went to college? So much for teaching Boo to say “Go Bears!”

For those of you from places other than the United States, I’m sure that this rivalry is understandable: Just imagine that you’re a Glouchester United fan and your wife teaches your kid an Eglington All-Blacks cheer. It’s like that.

I went to madison to visit friends last year, we’re probably going back next year too.

We had a great debate about bucky the so called badger:

@Oh, The Joys – We had not seen it, no, and thanks for that.

No, really, thanks. I think my daughter’s about to explode. 😉

@Dan – No, don’t tell me — in Europe, badgers aren’t cute and cuddly? I’m amazed you weren’t debating important things, like what “football” really means.
