As anyone with children knows, parenting requires many sacrifices. Some are small, some are big, and some are things that should be small but that you miss a lot anyway. I miss t.v. Adult t.v., with swearing, violence, and yes, even sex. James Bond, Resident Evil, Charlie’s Angels, Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes, Buffy–there’s any number of tv fodder that I miss having on.
So today I was once again bored with all the stuff we usually watch-even though some stuff is top-notch (Dark Crystal is the new favorite), sometimes you just want something newish. I ended up pulling out my old Xena box sets, and let Rowan pick one. She picked the incredibly cheese vampire one. But she loves it. She watched it once this morning and then this afternoon she wanted to watch it again. She came up to me with her little girly voice, “Can we watch this one? Please?” When we finally acquiesced, she ran over to the couch, exclaiming, “Yay! I like Vampires!”
Only my girl.
