I was thinking the other day about my skills as a parent, or maybe lack of skills. Ok, yes...my kids are still young and I am sure that I have many years left to mess them up, but as it stands now...I fear I suck.
Here is a brief list as to why:
1- After seeing the movie, The Proposal with me the other night, Cooper cannot stop singing "To the windows, to the walls, to my balls!" and laughing like a mad man when done. Yes, I know that the Lil John song is really not one a 5 year old should be belting out, but I am not going to lie...IT'S FUNNY! Like...way funny. And cute (trust me if you saw him doing it, as he adds this little hand motion...it's cute!) as hell! Something in me tells me that I need to put the stomp down on this little song, but I just can't!
2- I will openly admit to letting the boys eat ceral for dinner. The box says it's healthy, so leave me alone! Just saying
3- After reading a friends facebook post about voodoo being in a new Disney movie and having to FW through those parts, I thought "What’s the big deal about that?" I guess my thinking is...IT'S A DISNEY MOVIE...not some cult film or that strange movie with Lisa Bonne from the 90's. How voo-doo'ish is this movie really gonna be?
Ok...so that is the list for the moment, but I am sure that I have many more things to add...and I will...when I can remember them all.
So, do I suck as a mom or am a letting my kids grow up to people who make their own choices and love to laugh at the world around them???

I was at work just now, willing myself to at least LOOK productive when my mind started to drift to the shows that I liked to watch as a kid.
And yes...I will full on admit to having taken some pain meds this morning (due to a headache from HELL) and this list may seem a bit strange, but it's my list..so bite me!
1- Punky Brewster
I HEART THIS SHOW! Come on....who doesn't wanna watch a grouchy old dude take in a free spirit lil girl with bandanna tied to her pant legs? They should make more shows like this today, but something tells me that the modern day TV viewers are just not up for it and I am sure that Children's Protective Services is pretty much against this kinda show...just a thought.
2- Wonder Woman
Bring on the lasso of truth, fly the invisible plane and kick some bad dude ass...all while wearing stripper clothes. AWESOME!
3-The Greatest American Hero
Pretty sure I just like the theme song..."OH WHO COULD IT BE? BELIEVE IT OR NOT...IT'S JUST ME!"
4- HEE HAW
IF anyone just read that and laughed...I will find you and kick your ass! I used to watch this show with my Grandpa and I am dang proud of it! Knowing who Mini Pearl is has made me a better person today, I am sure of it! That being said, I am not ready to go around with a price tag on my hat anytime soon. RIP Ms. Pearl, and my Bumpa.
5-Mork & Mindy
I am pretty sure they remade that show a few years later. It was called Will & Grace.
I am sure that there were a TON of other shows that I watched and loved, but that is all I can think of at the moment.
