Thank you to Disney for providing us with a great Doc McStuffins DVD.

If you have a toddler the words “time for your checkup” probably cause involuntary humming and perhaps head-bobbing.  In fact, just thinking about those words right now has the Doc McStuffins theme song running through my head.  Bubbles is taking a nap right now, otherwise if she heard me hum it out loud, she’d be begging to watch the new Disney Junior “Time For Your Check Up” DVD (available today!).  That would be fine by me, because I have to admit to being quite the Doc fan, myself.
