Stef and I didn’t watch much TV together while she was in her teens. I think that’s SOP for teenage girls and their fathers.
God – I hope it is.
Now that she’s a little older and more mellow and I’ve somehow gotten a little smarter, it’s OK… sometimes. We’ve watched a few shows over the last few days. Maybe shows isn’t always the right word.
I walked in while she was watching TV earlier in the week and somehow we got to tuning around the dial. Stef watches channels I never see and vice versa. It is unusual for Stef to watch scripted shows.
Finally, while tuning around, we got to the GTXpress 101. “I’m sure it’s better than the 100,” Steffie said.
This is the commercial with the man and woman cooking things. Stef has watched enough to know some of the dialog. This is not a point of family pride. There were times I could have done the same.
I asked her to quickly tune past the Girls Gone Wild commercial. She took her time, for effect. Why are these on TV?
Last night it was a little bit of “Jon and Kate, Plus 8” on TLC. It’s a reality show, and though some of the situations seem a little contrived, the ensuing action was real. Three and four year olds will act as they wish, especially over extended periods.
Jon and Kate and their eight children – a set of twins (both girls), and a set of sextuplets (3 girls and 3 boys) are the focus. Jon and Kate seem like good parents, but they are as different as can be.
She dominates and he is docile. It’s like he’s had the fight beaten out of him.
I just can’t imagine eight. It boggles the mind.
The two older girls, twins, are extremely articulate, quite precocious and obviously very bright.
This is a show on a channel I’d never see. Maybe family television viewing should come back.
