Yes you are a bad mommy!!!! You should have let babay hear the song in utero! My wife was pregnant with our DD 5 when we went to Disney World in 2003-My DD 5 had her 3rd and 4th birthday at Disney;Our other DD 4 was 1,2,and 3 years old(not birthdays though)at Disney!!! Be prepared,I think you might be encouraging another DIS'er!!!! I don't think there is ANYTHING wrong with what your'e doing-just be prepared when the youngster is ready to go to "The House of Mouse"!

I must be yet another bad mommy! My 9 month old son loves tv. He even tries to turn it on and off himself! He plays with his toys while his older sister (8) watch Phineas and Ferb and all the other Disney kids shows! He is going to meet Mickey for his 1st Birthday this Sept- I am starting his love of the mouse early!

LOL! I'll join you on that bad mommy bench. DD7 decided when DD11mo was born that the best way to make sure the baby wasn't scared of Mickey was early indoctrination. So from the time the baby started scooting and being even a little interactive, DD7 would pull up a beanbag chair to cuddle in on the floor, put MMCH on (DVD), and explain who all the characters were to her baby sister. It is just so cute that I couldn't discourage it, and at 11mo, the baby gets excited and bounces/dances every time she hears the MMCH music. And now that she's walking and getting into everything, it is a nice little big of downtime - she's constant motion any time she's awake, except for that half hour that Mickey is on in the morning!

Thanks all for not me feel bad!!! I love, love, love disney and the fact that my son enjoys it also helps me get my DH on board! He is already talking about a family trip every 2 or 3 years!!! Yeah for us. Maybe as Will gets older he can help me talk his dad into a trip every year, LOL!

Nope, you're not a bad Mommy for letting him watch MMCH. Our 8.5 month old watches it once in a while too. He probably watches Elmo on SS everyday for about 10 minutes!

if your a bad mom, then call DYFS on me because being 8 1/2 months pregnant with a 13 month old by my side, I only wish she would sit long enough to watch cartoons. Now the free credit report .com commercial and the theme song to the office and Golden girls always gets her attention so I now have them as ring tones and Im considering recording them to vhs tape just to keep replaying.

I'm loud & proud...my son watches cartoons all day, from the time he's up until he goes to bed! He started with watching Baby Einstein at around 7-8 months and has done on from there. I think I started watching MMCH with him when he was just about a year old. He is so freakin smart it's ridiculous! Everything from Mickey to the Imagination Movers, Dora & Diego to now Phineus & Ferb and Scooby Doo (he's forbidden Spongebob, though! ). He will mix Spanish words in (properly) with his English, can count to 20, knows all his colors, letters & numbers and is starting to write. He's barely 3 1/2 and has known a lot of this for some time. I took him out of daycare when I lost my job last year and he has thrived here at home! He was developmentally delayed into his first year but since he's been home with Mommy, there's no signs of that anymore. My point? Cartoons haven't hurt my son! Now granted he doesn't park himself infront of the TV all day, he's constantly moving, either running through the house or even on my exercise bike for random spurts of "working out."

My son's 2nd birthday was a Mickey Mouse theme. I baked a Mickey cake, had little ears & stickers ordered from Oriental Trading (this was before the stores had the MMCH stuff, like just months before! I'm so annoyed to see the stuff in stores now when I had to improvise! )

Bad mommies unite!

My DH, not a Disney lover, actually suggested that we start letting DS watch the Disney channel about 6 months ago so he would know the characters when we went to WDW.

Now DS LOVES Playhouse Disney and he is watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse right now. Handy Manny and MMC are his favorites.
