My triplets are seven years old now. I do not miss changing 25+ diapers per day, looking and feeling like a zombie, or begging (sometimes screaming at) people to stop touching my micro-preemie babies without permission. Of course, I do miss my tiny babies. Also, I miss holding them all at once. On the bright side, I’m teaching them to give me a great back massage! I get six strong little hands kneading away the knots and spasms of motherhood. I joke that I’m still in pain from theme-song overload.
Do you remember when your kids used to watch that one show (whatever one it was for your own child), over and over again, until you thought you’d go crazy? All parents go through that phase with their kids. We get those theme songs popping into our heads at the most inappropriate times.
I remember one day I was on hold during an important business call, no hold music, just silence. Next thing I knew, I was singing, “I’m just a kid who’s four, each day I grow some more, I like exploring I’m Caillou. So many things to do, each day is something new, I’ll share them with you I’m Caillou….” The person who put me on hold came back on the line, but she didn’t let me know until I had sung the entire song. “That was adorable,” she giggled!
They certainly aren’t fixated on a single show anymore. Now, they want to watch a different show every 10 minutes. They remember which episodes they’ve seen already, and none of them want to watch the same thing at the same time. They want to be in charge, but I have to be in the driver’s seat. Especially nowadays, I can’t just let them loose with a TV remote and hope for the best. Nope. Thankfully, I’ve found a simple solution.
Hello, Kids Zone! They have the remote. You have the control. Available on Xfinity’s X1.
Xfinity introduced their Kid’s Zone last year. It’s a safe place for kids to watch TV independently and parents get peace of mind! It’s the first experience that provides parents access to Common Sense Media‘s age-based ratings and reviews in Spanish – directly on the TV – for some of the most-popular Latino kids TV programs including El Chavo Animado, Tayo, Nina’s World and Plaza Sésamo. Xfinity keeps arming bicultural families with more resources and information to aid the decision-making process about what’s right for your family’s entertainment.
I love that it’s a truly bicultural experience, available in Spanish and English, and gives Hispanic families the language of their choice. Kids Zone brings live TV, On Demand, DVR’d and purchased English- and Spanish-language programming into one simple and safe user interface that can be set to either language. It can be easily accessed via the kids section of Xfinity On Demand or by simply saying “Kids Zone” into the X1 Voice Remote. Kids Zone provides customizable settings allowing parents to filter content by a specific age-group and set up a four-digit pin to prevent children from exiting Kids Zone without permission.
Comcast proudly presents the new Hispanic independent kids channels Primo TV and Kids Central, plus a new partnership with Netflix! I shared about it, HERE! Your kids are going to LOVE using the remote, too! They don’t have to be an engineer to figure it out. They can even speak to it, in their preferred language. Check out what I shared about the Xfinity X1 Voice Remote, HERE! Xfinity X1 really has it all, for the entire family! For a great summary of some of my favorite things, check them out, HERE!
I’ve written a lot about Comcast and Xfinity X1 because I really love the service and the company. I especially love their continued dedication to bringing the culturally relevant features and programming to Hispanic families. You wouldn’t believe all the things they do for the community as well, but I’ll leave that for another post, in the future.
Have you ever gotten a kids show theme song stuck in your head? Share which one in the comments!
