A Sign That Maybe Your Children Have Been Watching Too Much TV

They overhear a person out in public say to someone else, "Hey, did you hear our good news?"

And one child interrupts the conversation to yell, "Did you just save a ton of money on your car insurance by switching to Geico?"

And the other child follows up with, "Yeah, baby!"

And these same children think this is a perfectly normal, rational way to respond to this question.

It is precisely these moments that make a mother proud.

LOL! I can really relate to that - but I'd be the one saying it.

But, y'know some kids/people just remember commercials even if they don't watch much TV. or maybe I'm deluding myself. :)

That's like when my five yar old said, "I want some of that cereal by Kellogg's. The one that's not just good, it's GREEEAAATTTT!"

I love reading your blog because I get to fast forward ahead to see what older children are doing and saying. Your kids keep me in stitches. I hope to one day have three kids so I admire you. Really admire you!

Thanks for the laughs!

That's so funny!

One of my children (age 8) pulled me aside and told me that if we were having problems, she knew a solution. She was referring to an ad for a debt consolidation firm that runs over and over. It features a distraught woman who gets a "tip" from her debt collector. I told her it was ok & that our family didn't need that. But it does make ya think about tv commercials. And sadly, my kids know the Geico one also. I've had to tell them we are happy with our car insurance!

My twin brother was (and continues to be) a repository for ancient ad jingles and TV theme songs. It used to drive my mom nuts, but I'm used to him bursting into random commercial song when, for example, we're driving on a road trip together.

LOL! My 6YO DD will sing that jingle "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now!" from some bladder control commercial (can't remember the name of it now) when she's got to use the bathroom sometimes! Makes DH and me crack up!

OMG my 12 year old did this to me out in public too! LOL.

Oddly enough, my kids do not actually watch much tv - and when it's on I can pretty much bet it's;

Smallville
Spongebob
Full House
Fresh Prince of Bel Aire.


However, he (Coffeekid) seems to SOAK UP commercial jingles like a sponge. (It certainly IS funny though isn't it?). You gotta admit you laughed when your kids did that right? :)

Wait, they SAID that TO the person? Not just to each other? BWAH HA HA HA HA.

I love it.

By the way, Chris, I cracked up at the checkbook thing. I would totally have done the same thing. I sometimes get cards from my inlaws with my husband's name, and even though socially I do go by his name sometimes, I still get INFURIATED about it and refuse to open or read the card. Fun to be irrational, huh?

Debt reduction can be done in many ways. A recent method being used is to buy some debt reduction software. You can purchase debt reduction software online or at a computer software store. The software usually comes with a debt reduction calculator to help you decipher how quickly your debt will be paid off in accordance to your monthly balance payments. Similarly, there are also debt reduction books you can purchase at your local bookstore. The best route for help with debt reduction is to go to see a credit counseller or a debt reduction counseller.

Saw your blog about ohio mortgage - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in pal pay reach and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
