Dang, Disney just pissed me off

So, it's 6pm on a Saturday. We're watching a bit of TV after dinner and before the kids go with X for the weekend. Right now it's Hannah Montana, but just before that (at 5:30, which makes this even worse, really), it was The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Z&C were competing for class president. Zack had made all these great promises of ice cream and skate parks, and one of the kids yelled out to remind him of this promise after he withdrew from the race (because Cody was actually a better candidate, surprise surprise). To this, Zach yells out, "Like that was ever going to happen. You probably believe in the tooth fairy, too."

Suddenly, the world stood very still for me. I mean, WTF?!?!?!

Kira had been watching this show raptly. Kira, who at 8 is just on the verge of learning all the truths. But has not. At least, not to my knowledge.

Thanks SO much, Disney.

Three f'ing days before Christmas. mk

They probably think kids who are slightly older watch that show and that all kids are prematurely disillusioned anyway by the Bunny, Mr. Claus, and the Fairy of Teeth.

Tell her "it's just tv". Everyone knows tv isn't real. ;)
