Bye bye Iggle piggle and Hello Peppa Pig
In the Night Garden, Anjie’s one time favourite TV show, until Peppa Pig came along that is! It was honestly long overdue!
Hubby & I have always had our reservations about Iggle piggle and his gang, lets just say we didn’t really think they passed on much knowledge and life experience to their ‘fans’. I mean, Mr & Mrs Pontipine are terrible parents! Eating all kinds of sweets and ice cream while giving their kids runny grobbles (porridge I think? not even sure what that is!) and leaving their kids outside even when its time to go back home, absolutely unbelievable! The the characters don’t really talk! Upsy Daisy is all about me me me and is sooo in love with herself but don’t get me started!
Anyway, so we’ve moved to Peppa pig who is a bit of an ITK (I too know or I know it all), but a lovable one. She calls her daddy silly, hmmmm, I’m not sure how many African fathers would take that but I’d let that one slide, but she loves her parents and little brother, George to bits. And she talks – a lot! Anjie absolutely loves her and sings along to their nursery songs and just can’t get a enough of her…
Now hubby isn’t a fan of franchising cartoon characters and all but I’ve come to embrace it! What do you do when you kid refuses to put on her clothes? Giver her a Peppa pig top and she’ll grab it and try to wear it herself! Socks, shoes? It works every time! What about if you want to get your kid reading a little bit more? Buy her Peppa pig books, she’d love them! The options are endless! Let’s just say, I’ve found Peppa pig to be quite helpful around the house!
In other news, really looking forward to Easter as we’ll be with family and Anjie’ll get to see some of her London cousins again! It’s always loving being around family especially during festive seasons… Thank God for family!
And my personal favourite?
God bless them…
Have a blessed Easter celebration and enjoy the holiday!
