My hubby always tells me that I can't let my boys watch girl shows and play with girl toys.
As a little girl who was always covered in mud and playing with trucks I left it go in one ear and out the other.
I am going to be honest with you I am one of the coolest people I know :). Am no I am not bragging. I am just saying I am easy going, always laughing and just love life. I am always one of the first people to offer help when I can and I never judge others.
Playing with "boy" toys didn't in anyway mess me up. I am who I am and the toys I played with as a child didn't dictate that. No way was I going to let my hubby put my boys into a stereotypical boy only toys and shows category. I am here to help my boys be who they are suppose to be, not who I think they should be.
With that in mind I was super excited when Quinn started to watch Shimmer and Shine. This may be considered a girl show, but as I said in my house we don't put those type of labels on things. This show is super cute and teaches are kiddos about every day things. Such as friendship and promblem solving. Oh and did I mention it is fun? I always hear little Quinn laughing when he is watching this show!!
About Shimmer and Shine:
Twin sisters Shimmer and Shine are Leah's secret genies-in-training! Leah always has some dilemma that she needs her magical friends' help with, and the genies are happy to grant her three wishes a day. As genies-in-training, they sometimes misinterpret what Leah wishes for, and often times they'll accidentally grant her wishes she didn't even mean to make. Each wrong wish quickly compounds into a crazy adventure. Ultimately, through teamwork, the genies and Leah find a way to fix the problem without the use of wishes.
