Yep, I love that show. And I'll tell you why. Because in every single episode, they make a point of showing the people in Sheetrock Hills who are wheelchair bound--there are 2: Sam, the owner of the bike shop, and another little boy who is in a chair and who likes to play basketball. They are shown rolling through town, and there is acutally an episode about each of them.
It may seem like something small, but it really means a lot to see so much diversity in Handy Manny. It makes me happy to know that someday Dakin will notice Sam or the other little boy and say, "hey, he's like me," and he'll feel included.
Now if we could only get a chaired kid on Little Einsteins...my joy would be complete. :)
Update: Dakin is much better. He wasn't on 02 last night. I'm still nervous though, as we learned that 2 kiddos have died of H1N1 in our area this week.
