I think I'm going to have to start devouring children's pop culture, just so I can talk to my nephews.


Yesterday, Caleb told me he'd watched Rack, Shack, and Benny. (From Veggietales.)

I know from experience that "Really? What happened in the story?" will get nothing but blank looks. But having seen R,S,&B multiple times, I could instantly ask "Really? Did they sing the Bunny Song?" and other intelligent questions.


This presents a problem. Because eventually, they're going to be watching/reading/whatevering things that I've never heard of - and I'll be back to "what happened?" and blank looks.

I can see myself avidly watching the latest Power Rangers equivalent...

VeggieTales is love. When my sister and cousins and I drive to our grandparents' house, we always put in the soundtracks and sing along--really loud--on the top of our lungs. The youngest of us is 17. But we still love them!

Is that your nephews in your icon? Too. Adorable!

VeggieTales was always very fun...
