Where's the Mom?
Have you noticed the "mom conspiracy" in children's programming? I never really paid attention until my husband started to watch with the kids and kept asking "Where's the Mom?", there is rarely a mom!!!
Let's run through my kids' favorite programs and the main caretakers,
Max and Ruby - Grandma
Sponge Bob - Grandma
Cory in the House - Dad
I Carly - Brother
Hanna Montana - Dad
The Suite Life - Mom (whew!)
Naked Brothers Band - Babysitter
From my recollection, this stems back to the days of Bambi and continues with my kids' favorite movies today:
Sound of Music - Dad/Nanny
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - Dad
The Wizard of Oz - Aunt
The Game Plan - Dad
Alvin and the Chipmunks - Dave
Narnia - Uncle
Harry Potter - Aunt and Uncle
Elf - Santa
See a pattern? Creepy. I wonder, are they hatching a plot against me right now? They look conspiratorial...
Let's move on to my Resolutions Update. I sat in a chair and ate a ham and cheese sandwich and an orange...then I got up to write on my blog with a piece of chocolate and a smallish bowl of chips and dip - it's a start! I did clean half of the house and also made dinner! Recipe for my Chicken Tortilla Soup/Chili tomorrow.
I also decided to get a big, ugly desk calendar to keep me in line with the organization thang, need some organization in your life that's a bit prettier? Let's shop!
Liliana's Planner is a rich addition to your quest for organization
