The Day Caillou Broke the Internet

First off, I’m both flattered and perplexed by the sudden attention to this silly little Caillou post on my little blog. Watching an old post suddenly start trending on Facebook & Twitter is an absolute trip.
Traffic to Remodelicious multiplied one day, then skyrocketed the next before eventually increasing exponentially. The load at my webhost wreaked havoc and I had to work with them to make some major changes to my hosting. The good news is that now things are back up and running with a shiny, new upgrade.
What surprised me even more than skyrocketing from a home & family blog to a trending topic was how seriously so many took the post. Y’all, it’s my personal opinion about a children’s show and a running joke around my circle of friends. I’m truly pleased that so many of you enjoyed it, but I was never shooting for a Nobel Prize, mmmk? Lighten up and enjoy life, you might find that you like the view much better from the lighter side of things.
So please, enjoy the Parents Against Caillou post with a light heart and a playful mind. In face, read any satirical blog posts in jest. Change the channel when Caillou comes on if you’d like to have parenting energy left to interact peacefully with your children, find better role models for your children both on and off the “tube”, and at the end of the day, remind yourself that it could be worse – you could be Caillou’s evidently helpless & unemployed parents.
I didn’t forget about you, Canada. Y’all can do better. If bald children need a hero, lets give them one who can put his big boy pants on and play nice.
I’m off to delete troll comments while my children stick matches into electrical sockets, since that’s the kind of parent I am for A) letting my kids watch TV, B) not letting them be inspired by helpless, irritating nincompoops, and C) blogging in addition to running my business to provide for my family. Oh, did I say that out-loud? Okay, now let’s just not be like Caillou and enjoy the day!
