And now, with kids shows, we’re afraid to touch on subjects like death, divorce, and homosexuality, lest the parents phone up and throw a bitchfit. Television was educational not in that it taught us how to count by twos or what the word indigenous meant, but in the way it taught us life lessons in a way we were able to see, understand, reference and relate to. Television shows like this were guidebooks for parents, good tools to use when having a talk with kids about the death of a family member, friend, or even a pet. Saying things like “remember how Chuckie found that picture of his Mommy, and his Dad showed him all the things she used to have, and the poem she wrote for him?” gets the kid in the right mindset- and now?
Now we’ve got shows based on “randomocity”, slapstick humor without purpose, and full thirty minute slots packed tight with mindless one-liners and lessons in how to catch jellyfish with a net if you live underwater as a yellow sponge.
I’m not saying we didn’t have our set of shows like that, with silly nothingness, but there were so many more shows with valuable lessons than there are today. That’s why shows like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, are receiving such volumes of attention: they are heading in the right direction, brushing subjects that other kid’s cartoons neglect for fear of backlash.

Oh god the tears
Made this for my boyfriend this Valentines Day. He made me card that said Love muffin with a muffin on it. ♥
My locket :) Since it was too tiny to fit a picture inside
Okay. My life really does not suck all that much (even though I’m sick and groggy) when I realize how awesome my relationship is with my boyfriend. We lay together and watch How I Met Your Mother and almost cry laughing because Marshall and Lilly have our exact relationship. I love my big teddy bear of a boyfriend and being an itty bitty girlfriend. I love how we learn and listen to each other when we make mistakes and are always no matter what there for eachother. :)
