When we found out we were finally expecting a little bundle of joy we couldn’t have been more excited. We bought the little thinga-magiggy that lets you hear the baby’s movements and a microphone we could place on my tummy to talk to the little cherub. We read him Shakespeare and poetry and Dr. Seuss. I stopped drinking caffeine and having chocolate and did all of the other over the top things we could think to make a perfect baby. I guess our over exuberance was a combination of waiting until we were older to have a baby and then having to work so hard at it. Anyway in all of our excitement we started searching for books that were relevant to our beginning family and ended up disappointed by the limited supply available. Over the years that has changed, our son is six now and the selection offered has grown and now we have a mini-library full of fun books pertinent to our family and lives.
We know we are a minority and that most kids have a mom and a dad, but for little guys like our son we thought wouldn’t it be grand if there were something more available to them. Something like a cartoon, like a Caillou with two moms or dads. The more we talked about it the more important it became. It was almost like, if we didn’t do something about it after we had this fantastic idea, then we were somehow being irresponsible parents. So out of that, “Buddy G” was born. It took longer, cost more and was way harder then we thought it would be, but we couldn’t be happier or more proud of the cartoon and the potential it represents. “Buddy G” has added incredible joy to our family and we hope he adds a little happiness to yours.
