Caillou Gets Schooled

Hello everybody! *Waves.* I know it's been a while since I've posted anything on the blog.

See, I was sick with a stomach virus. (It was worse than death. Would not have wished it upon my worst enemy.)  

Then both boys got ear infections and had to take Amoxicillan (sp?). And this medicine does bad, bad, BAD things to may baby's stomach. *Shudders.*

Then we celebrated Thanksgiving. (Yes, Thanksgiving day was quite lovely. Thanks for asking.)

Then, the day after Thanksgiving, Baby L got the stomach virus. (It was bad news. Let's put it this way. I'm thinking of a word that rhymes with "comet".)

And last, but not least, Hubby got the stomach virus as well. My poor sick Hubby!

*Sigh.* But you probably don't want to hear about all that. (Or maybe you do. You bunch of sickos. Hey, don't be upset! Sickos are my favorite type of people.)

Anyway, earlier this week I tweeted about Caillou and how he drives me looney.  I got a bunch of responses so it seems like there is a mass shared annoyance when it comes to this whiny, mean, bald-headed 4 year old kid.

So, I started thinking. (I know. Scary stuff, eh?) I thought that if I DID have to watch Caillou, then there might be a few episodes I could stomach.

  • Caillou Gets Schooled. In this episode, after once again yelling, "No Rosie!" in his sister's face, she pops him in the nose.  Then, Rosie says, "NO CAILLOU!", then she smiles and walks out.
  • Mommy Screams at Caillou. Here's the deal. Caillou's mom NEVER gets upset. That is not reality. It's so unrealistic. I mean let's see some realism like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Anyway, in this episode, after once again yelling and being mean to Rosie, his mom snaps and says, "That's it, Caillou! I am tired of you talking to your sister that way! You go straight to your room and do not come out until I say so!" Then, she promptly scoops up Rosie to give her a hug, then poors herself a glass of wine.
  • Caillou Goes to the Doctor. In this episode, Daddy takes Caillou to the doctor to see why a HEALTHY FOUR YEAR OLD BOY HAS NO HAIR.
  • Daddy Puts Caillou in Time Out. In this episode, after playing outside with his family, Rosie wants to play with Rexie. Caillou snatches it out of her hands and screams, "No Rosie! Rexie is my toy!" Daddy walks over and promptly snatches it back from Caillou and says, "That is unacceptable Caillou! You do not speak to your sister that way. You go sit on the bench for time-out."  Daddy then turns to Rosie, gives her a hug and says, "I'm sorry Caillou was mean. Let's go get you a banana split and a unicorn."
If I HAD to watch Caillou, I think I could stomach the episodes listed above.

What about you?  Do you have a soft spot for Caillou? Or does he chaff something fierce?


  1. lol, I feel the same way about Caillou, I'd almost watch it for the episodes where he gets schooled. (just those episodes, I'm not a Sadist ... or a Masochist)

    1. Word. I'll second that. Any day Caillou gets punches in the face is a good day!

  2. Just reading the word "Caillou" gets that theme song started in my head.
    I think the characters ought to be screaming all of the time just from that song!

    1. Gina, yessss! The theme song along makes me want to punch myself in the face!

  3. oh no, I'm sorry babe, its; no fun to be sick. I have a chest cold from hell. I HATE Caillou with a PASSION. I like those episodes, I can't stand the annoying, spoiled little poop.

    1. Thanks, sassy lady! Everyone seems to be healthy now. *Fingers crossed.* Sounds like you have had a time too. Hope you are feeling better! :)

  4. I am so with you girl!! When my kids were little, Barney the purple dinosaur was literally banned from my house! Glad everyone is feeling better!

    1. Paula, I forgot about Barney!!! Gah! He drives me nuts too but I think Caillou is the worst. So freaking whiny!!
      Thanks for the well wishes! We are all currently healthy (but that could change at anytime)!
