Every morning before I leave for work, I do any left-over dishes and pick up the kitchen. This is my task. My husband does the family room. This is his task. If the kids wander up before I leave they usually watch a little Phineas & Ferb before breakfast - harmless, right?

There is never a morning I'm not rushing to sweep, wash and wipe before I head out the door, so more times than not I hear the buzz of the T.V. and the splash of water. But something my big kid said to me in the midst of my rush stopped me dead in my tracks...

E: "Hey Mom, look it's Chloe"
Me: "Chloe who? I don't know which one is Chloe"
E: "Mom, you know, Chloe"
Me: "No, I don't. I know Candice the sister? Is that Doofenschmirtz's daughter?"
E: "No, Mom, you know, Chloe - the one that's married to the basketball player"
(Tires screeching in my brain)
I dropped my sponge and ran to the family room.
E:"See mom, it says her name right next to her."

There in front of me on a kid station was a face product commercial with Khloe doing a testimonial of some sort - I didn't know which one because I turned the channel so fast, E's head spun. Next came the "how's, why's and huh's" of how my 7 YEAR OLD knows who Khloe Kardashian is. There are so many things wrong with this, I don't even know where to begin. Needless to say, censorship is once again alive and well at my house.
