I have to tell you what my husband found on TV yesterday and that my oldest child is now obsessed with.
I walked in the door and Olivia just about knocked me over, so excited to show me what she was watching. "Look, Momma! It's your favorite show from when you were a little girl!"
I do have to admit that I'm a little giddy over it. She's right, it was my favorite show. You might be able to say that I had a slight obsession. I remember winning a prize at church once and being asked what I wanted. This is what I got:
Forget Barbie. The Jem doll was totally cooler. I just showed that to Olivia and she's begging me for one. I wonder if I could find one on ebay.... hmmm.
I got up before the rest of the chickens today and curled up on the couch for one of my absolutely favorite activities - dozing under a blankie. Olivia got up, claimed a spot next to me under the blanket and located the Jem episode Bill DVR'd. So we got to sit and watch Jem together all cuddled up. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. =) And, as far as retro cartoons go (my childhood is "retro"? boo), I thought it was far less annoying as other cartoons I used to watch. I mean, it's still a big ball of cheese, but I didn't cringe once.
I told Olivia that her Daddy had set the TV to record more Jem shows for her and she literally did a happy dance. That's my girl. =) Oh, and we may have found our Halloween costumes. How cute would some little tiny Jem and the Holograms be?
