Daddy Button

Betty is absolutely obsessed with Peppa Pig. The last thing she says as she is dropping off to sleep is ‘E’pig E’pig pleeeeeeease’ and that’s the first thing we hear when she wakes up.

Young Betty is heavily influenced by Peppa, which sometimes works to our advantage and sometimes not. Where Betty is now happy to clean her teeth and go skipping and dancing to the dentist, she has also started throwing cups of water over Tom, blowing bubbles into her drink instead of drinking it, demanding chocolate cake, jumping in muddy puddles on the way to nursery and lying on the ground (often in mud) laughing and kicking, and patting the spot next to her urging us to do the same. Those pigs have a lot to answer for.

I think I know one of the reasons why Betty is so keen on the Pig family. Daddy Pig bears an uncanny resemblance to Tom. Tom is a highly intelligent, gifted and wonderful man, but like Daddy Pig, lacks any kind of commonsense or practical skills. Quite often, sharp little Betty will react in much the same way when Daddy Pig does something daft as she does when Tom is about to do something equally as daft, with her concerned: ‘Ut-Ooohhh’. Maybe it is a dad thing.

I remember Pepper Pig in this house, we still have a few toys. I used to sit and watch DVD's for hours on end. Hopefully none of us resemble any of the family though!

Hahahee that made me chuckle! Men are born without the common sense gene, aren't they?

Peppa Pig is somewhat of a fixture here, too. Three to four is a time that we can be guaranteed to get some housework done, when it's on Nick Jr and then Nick Jr 2!

Tonight, R has been calling herself Peppa and me and her father Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. She has put on our fluffy socks and ice skated around with them, because that's what Peppa does.

I quite like that they're not a perfect family, though the chocolate cake and muddy puddles do annoy me a bit!

My two love Peppa and George Pig too. My eldest is like Peppa and my son like George. We were reading a book and I said..."Daddy is a bit like Daddy Pig isn't he?" Eldest replied: "Yes, he has the glasses, the beard AND the tummy!" As they say...out of the mouths of babes...

I love Daddy pig, the very image of what a daddy should be.

Dan @ www.allthatcomeswithit.com and I agree, we both want to be him.

I am sure an appreciation group is not far away, and now I know where to come for members!

We love Peppa Pig in this house too... I bought one of those 'tiny library' box sets and it was all we read for about a month... but she does have a lot to answer for, the muddy puddle business is becoming an obsession!!
