Since I missed Gratituesday this week, I am going to tell you what I am thankful for today.
Remember those Baby Einstein DVD's that were aimed at the new moms with newborns, playing on their emotions and mom-guilt?
They made outrageous claims that if you sat your baby in front of the tv and turned on one of their DVD's, your child would grow up to be a genius.
A friend loaned me one, and I thought it was pretty crazy to watch, but the baby (number 3) at the time seemed to like the music, and it allowed me some time to clean up the kitchen.
Well now, makers of the Baby Einstein DVD's are admitting that having your baby watch one of their DVD's will NOT make them a genius.
Seriously, I hope nobody really believed that claim!!
The part I am thankful for, is that they have issued a recall on any Baby Einstein DVD's you have laying around. You do not need the receipt, and you can get back $15.99, or some other coupons/Disney store incentives.
Get your Baby Einstein DVD Refund form here, and send back those useless movies. Instead you can read to your baby, play with your baby, cuddle with your baby, and love your baby....that's what matters in the end!
(I must admit, I do like their Little Einstein series for toddlers!)
