And you're sure it's the TEENAGER that wanted to watch Weeds?

Just asking.


Suzy beat me to it!
I once spent 10 days with my then 3 year-old niece and two (2) videos in a place with no cable-TV... I knew those by heart, including where there was a hiccup in the tape on one of them, I knew the words to every song - and I "forgot" them when we left!

Smalltown Mom

I totally appreciate this!

So, my 17-teen-ager got back from Japan yesterday. And told me about a store in downtown Tokyo named Condomalia. And I said (with a straight face while focusing on driving out of the LAX airport), "Did you stock up?"

Life is different now.

You've managed to capture yet another most excellent part of growing-up kids, Jenn! I'm not fully there, yet, but we're slowly getting there. Did go to see Juno with my son. That was the coolest.


I love watching WEEDS! It's the best!

Jennifer H

You make it sound like the Promised Land...sigh. You're an inspiration for all of us who follow.


I have one in each spectrum. Today it was Power Rangers, Mary Kate & Ashley and the oldest never did get to watch anything she wanted except for Myspace on the computer.

Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy

We love Weeds! I'm bummed because we're all caught up now and can't watch them back to back anymore.


Now this would explain those late night blog comments!


OH! My wife and I had our first date at Beauty and the Beast!


This is so funny and TRUE.
Amazing how life changes over the years....


I love this series. right now we are on a mix of 70s Nancy Drew, Word World and Little Bear. I am not sure how I could handle Weeds ;)


Sending them for the takout? PRICELESS!


I'm looking for the day I can send mine out for takeout- I finally just got to the stage I can run out quick and leave the littles with the oldest. I'm totally loving that.


I'm stunned. Why? I should KNOW this stuff, I really should!

Jen on the Edge

I actually kind of miss the Princess movies. Okay, not that much.

My girls are totally into old TV shows right now: Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, Nancy Drew, etc.

The Girl Next Door

Yet another reason I do NOT miss my toddlers - knowing the Lion King/El Rey Leon by heart in english and spanish!! Gilmore Girls and chick flicks are so much more fun!


Okay, now I am going to have to check out Weeds.
Stop by and visit me, I posted about winning Jess's book from you!


On the mark as usual Jen - thank goodness we don't have to watch 'Old Bear' anymore.
Smalltown mom - well done for keeping your face in relaxed setting!

I'm not sure whether you're trying to rub it in or give me hope for the future...


I think I am too old to have a teen...but I do!


Nice! I haven't even gotten tot the toddler watching yet, besides Baby Einstein. But it's nice to know that there will be a time when they will be useful.


ha. something to look forward to. i'm in between toddler and teen -- a good stage (despite my current whiny post) and looking forward to each new year.


Knowing all of the words by heart to the entire collection of Disney's Sing-A-Longs, as well has watching now South Park with my teen, I can completely relate!

San Diego Momma

These toddler vs. teen smackdowns are killing me!

I'm in the thick of the toddler years and about to burn every copy of every kid DVD I come across twice.

HOW DID YOU GET THROUGH IT?????????????????????????


I can't wait to watch something that does not have animated characters singing. :) I think I still have many years of the singing left though. :)


No more Bob the Builder. No more Bob the Builder. No more Bob the Builder.

Ah thank goodness that's coming to my future.

Our oldest (11) is at that age where we're introducing him to more mature content. He can ride his bike to pick up food, yeah?

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

I KNOW! It's totally like that and it rocks. Except in my house you have to send the eight-year-old to another room to watch Hannah Montana and Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Otherwise, it's totally like that.


I've been waiting to watch Weeds because I still have the 13 yo. She does get to see many more movies than her brother did at her age. She's lucky her brother broke the ice. I'll probably let her watch it with me pretty soon. I'll still be waiting to watch Sex in the City, though. I'm not sure I'm old enough to watch some of those episodes.

Angie @ Keep Believing

I was thinking along these lines as I went to see my FOURTH kid movie in as many months -
Speed Racer
Kung Fu Panda
Wall - E
Spiderwick Chronicles



And THIS is what I am longing for. I'm up to my eye balls in High School Musical and Hanna Montana. UGH!!


Now imagine having both of those scenarios in the house at the same time. Ok, not toddler, but 5 year-old. And then one who is almost old enough to go to an R rated movie by herself. The result is that I'm sure the small one has seen things that we would have never considered letting the other two watch at her age. She knows all the songs on Guitar Hero. Hearing a five year-old sing "Suck My Kiss" (Red Hot Chili Peppers) is slightly disturbing to me.

I loved Season 1 of Weeds. I should rent the 2nd season. My kids have not seen that one, though.
