32 Reasons You know when you’ve watched too much Peppa Pig

I have a love/hate relationship with Peppa Pig.  All three of my children have loved watching the episodes, and we are in the midst of it with Piglet enjoying the different adventures.  There is something about that little Pig and her family that seems to draw the children in.  Whether it is the bright and bold colours, the adventures and mishaps they get into or the catchy songs that are incorporated into each episode.

On the other hand, I look at the behaviour of Peppa, her family and those around her and am appalled that this is something I allow my children to watch.  Peppa is a spoilt brat, George cries whenever he gets is own way, everyone is mean to Daddy Pig about his weight… I could go on. 

Still, it is something that I can’t escape and it appears that I’m not the one.  I asked ‘You know when you’ve watched too much Peppa Pig…’ to my fellow bloggers and this is what they came back with…
