Taking out the eyes!

Not sure if I blogged about this before. If so, bare with me. Rob and I try to be really careful about what we watch on TV while Cady is awake. TLC and The Food Network is about as hardcore as it gets. So, about a month ago I flip on TLC and it just happens to be this scene where a blind kid is taking his glass eyeballs out and putting them away for the night. Cady of course was in absolute awe and immediately announced that she too would like to take out her eyeballs. This became a constant battle for quite some time. Cady insisting that she wanted her eyes out and us trying to share logic as to why it is not a good idea to take our your eyeballs. It got to the point where I was a little nervous even to put her down for a nap or bedtime because I had this vision of her taking her eyes out...she is a pretty persistent kid.
Well, just when we thought it would never end, it did.
Until...
Okay, who has seen that M&M commercial with the two talking M&M's. The one M&M guy pulls an M&M out of the pack. The other M&M guy says that he can see a resemblance. The first M&M guy doesn't see it. SOOOOOO, the second M&M guy pops the first M&M guys eyes off of his head and attaches them to the M&M. Greeeaaaaaaat!
Who do you think a two year old is going to believe now? Mom and Dad who have spent a month convincing her that she can't remove her eyes AFTER SHE HAS ALREADY SEEN IT HAPPEN and has now seen it happen for the SECOND time by a very believable and trustworthy M&M guy?
Yup. Back to the logic battles.

I bet that's a dilemma you never imagined you'd have! Cady sure is an interesting kid :)

I think I actually saw the program that initiated this. Is it the blind kid who gets around using clicking noises?
