Most days my television is dominated by my girls. I’ve watched countless hours of Ni Hao Kai-lan, Doc McStuffins, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I have no problem watching children’s television shows. What I do have a problem with is the commercials between some of those shows.
Ugh. Those commercials. My 3-year-old always asks me if she can get what they’re advertising.
So, dear readers, what commercials do you not care for?
