peppa pig

We are big fans of Peppa Pig. Never heard of it? We hadn't either until big sis came for a visit with her kids from London. With them they brought these giant activity books with all the popular British TV characters for kids. Peppa Pig was included in the book. I saw it and didn't think much of it. We then noticed it was coming on Nick Jr. and started to record it. The rest, as they say, is history.

The very cool thing about the show is it is something both Mase and Omi will watch together.
Plus, they talk with a British accent. Omi asks me all the time, "Do they have an accent?"
I will then notice her walking around the house trying to talk like them:
"Mummy, may I have some more please?"
"Tuck in!"
Makes for a lively and very entertaining day.

We have thought for a while we were the only ones watching the show. Or had ever heard of Peppa.
Then we were at the lake one day and saw a little girl wearing a Peppa Pig swimming suit.
We all were giddy realizing we had a fellow Peppa Pig lover in our midst.
Like the total unabashed loser that I am, I made a beeline to the mother and excitedly asked where she had bought the Peppa Pig swim suit.
Oh. Of course.
They had just returned from London and bought it there.
Should've known.
We will just patiently wait for the rest of the world to catch on.
