Turu the Terrible

Ok, I know I have posted in the past about how our little Avery loves the old school cartoon Jonny Quest. He has the beginning and ending credits memorized, anticipating every scene and labeling all of the characters. Now he is starting to pick up dialog as well. I'm not sure how I feel about this - let me give an example as to why...

In one episode he particularly loves, there is a mean guy (that's what we call them around here) that has a pet flying dinosaur named Turu. Turu is kind of like his attack dog, the mean guy uses him to help carry out the fiendish plans. Well, at one point in the show the mean guy yells, "Kill, Turu, Kill." as he is pointing to the Jonny Quest gang...its only one small instance in the show, but guess who can yell that just as clear as day? Yep, my sweet little baby faced Avery.

I am as proud of this moment as I was when Isaiah was around 2 or 3 years old and requested a Johnny Cash song by saying, "Can we listen to the one where he says I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die?" Maybe we should filter what they are watching/listening to a little more, or maybe we should just stay away from folks named Johnny.
