I'm Hating It

McDonalds! Come ON!!! My kid loves your happy meals. She eats the whole damn thing, something she rarely does with other food. Going there is a treat for her, especially because she gets a free toy. So imagine my dismay when, on our recent outing to McD's when the BBDD was traveling, the "toy" in the Happy Meal was a "KidzBop" CD. My child's CD? Songs by Fergie, Daughtry and someone else I cannot imagine any 4 year-old ought to be listening to. FERGIE for my 4 YEAR OLD?!! Have you lost your corporate minds?!! I threw that thing right in the garbage after hiding it at home. The day my 4 year old listens to fucking FERGIE is the day I hang it up and wish her good luck on the future stripper pole. I'm not dissing Fergie as an artist. Good for her--for teenagers and adults. But my 4 year-old?! Hells naw! So--no more McD's trips until the CD's are gone. On a different note, why anyone would want to listen to small children singing, "I hope you know, I hope you know, this has nothing to do with you; It's personal, myself and I we got some figurin out to do..." That's a vein-opener if I've ever heard one.

Fergie Fail for McD's on this one.

I just hate the CDs because, HELLO, I have two kids!! And I'm sure there are others out there who do as well. I asked for something different last time and they said they didn't have anything. I had the same problem with the Wendy's CD ROM games. I don't need duplicates.

Too bad they're doing some sort of corporate trade off, otherwise they wouldn't be passing out CDs of anybody.

Promptly through the CD my four-year old girl got in the garbage. Thankfully, she was uninterested.

Loved your post about Bambina and art class. Sounds so like our daughter.
