Peanuts Obsession

Victoria has has various obsessions throughout her 7.5 years. The first was Elmo for maybe ages 18 mo-3? Then Disney Princesses of course. A small Frozen interest, right when it came out - maybe age 5? Scooby Doo for a while. Then it was Winx videos on the Ipad, a short Monster High time. Now it is mostly Shopkins.

Benny liked Elmo for a while. The current obsession, probably for the last four- ish months is Peanuts and Charlie Brown. P had purchased a three pack of the Peanuts holiday specials (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) for Victoria and we watched them at appropriate times. Benny somehow became obsessed with them. I ended up buying a few other Snoopy and Charlie Brown DVDs I found around. He also likes my Charlie Brown Dictionary that I received for Christmas in 1978 (complete with inscription). He can name every character, and quotes (sometimes not so nice) things from the DVDs - "You blockhead!" "Momma, I'm NOT your sweet Baboo". He carries around the DVDs, scratching them in the process and begs to watch it. He screams out loud when he watches it and finds something funny. His favorite characters when prompted are "Marcie" and "Charlie Brown".

What a surprise. But Peanuts is great (with the exception of mean Lucy) and it's been fun memories for me.

Snoopy and Woodstock shirt. The headband was his own selection.

With one of his precious DVDs. He took it to bed.

His obsession actually started with reading the charlie brown dictionary. Strangely enough. Interest in the videos came after that. -P
