Frighten Me Elmo

A tip for any parent who still has to occassionally sit out on the couch with their child in the middle of the night:

1) This "Elmo Sing and Teach Table" is prone to start playing spontaneously if the batteries are running low ("playing" means that Elmo's head begins to bob back and forth, while he sings a slow, blurry song due to the low batteries).



2) If you decide to watch television while your holding your child in the middle of the night in a dark, dark room, try not to watch, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", especially sitting next to the "Elmo Sing and Teach Table" whose batteries are running low. Screaming at the top of your lungs while holding a sleeping baby is not conducive to keeping that baby asleep.

Watching this movie + Elmo starting to sing spontaneously = Frightened Daddy.

Oh, yes. We had a Dora talking backpack with a short. It would sing out of nowhere. I thought we had a Poltergeist.
