We have officially moved past the preschool stage in our home.
I can tell for many reasons.
Diapers are never on my grocery list.
No one drinks out of sippy cups.
I can sleep in on Saturday mornings because it's Pop Tart Saturday, which means, my kids are all old enough to wake up, eat a pop tart and watch cartoons until Aaron and I make our way out of the bed.
I miss my babies being babies, but it has been fun to share with them some things that were a part of our growing up years.
Aaron hates that Anson loves these people...
They drive Aaron crazy, but Anson talks about them like they are real.
Remember, our kids don't get a whole lot of TV time (summer has been more lax) but wow, you would think the Tanners lived next door to us or something.
We'll be driving around and Anson will say, "You want to know something funny Uncle Joey said?"
Then, we got the kids to fall in love with these people...
It didn't take long. Who can watch this show and not love this family?
Every single time I watch this show, I wish I were like Mrs. Huxtable. She's so sweet to her husband and her kids. I love how much they love each other, and how patient she is with her children.
The most recent show we've exposed our kids to is...
Can you be an American and not know who Steve Erkel is?
Maybe, but I don't think anyone should try it.
Today, I remembered one of my all time favorite shows EVER. I was still in love with this family even after I was married! I would tape this show and watch it every afternoon.
I loved the Torkelsons.
I still think of them and wonder what ever happened to sweet Kirby Scroggins.
I'm going to try and find this show on DVD to buy for my kids.
If you have never seen it, you will LOVE it. We will share with you!
I'm not saying kids should watch TV all the time. We don't let them watch all these shows every day, but I love sharing with them the shows I loved growing up. It's hard to believe that I have kids this old, who love shows that aren't animated.
Have I said often enough that one minute kids are tiny and the next minute they are watching the Cosby Show?
There are times when I'm sad that the baby moments have melted away. But then I look around at my boys piled up on my lap, sprawled out on the couch in the living room, laughing at Steve Erkel and I think...
I sure do love ALL their stages.
I miss those fat baby thighs, and nursing my babies...but there are sweet blessings in watching my sons grow up.
