Full House is taking over OUR house

When Addison walks in the door from school, the first thing she asks for (besides food) is the show "Full House" Remember the show with Danny Tanner, his three daughters (DJ, Stephanie and Michelle) and his 2 best friends Jesse Katsopolis and Joey Gladstone? Don't forget Rebecca Donaldson, Jesse's move in girlfriend who eventually he marries and has twin boys with. 

While I am on bedrest I am much too obliged to let Addie sit and watch something that will hold her attention for more than 5 minutes.  Lately, Addison has been coming away with some interesting tidbits from the show.

The other day we were talking in the kitchen and I said "Addie do you like candy apples?"
She looks at me in surprise and says " Oh no, I would never eat that, it will take my fillings out!"  (Interesting tidbit #1)

We were in my bedroom and she pulls out this dress that I have and says "Mommy, where did you get this? The 70's?" (Interesting Tidbit #2)

She loves to tell me "That's RUDE." Stephanie's catch phrase from the 90's, and she knows what a honeymoon is "because Rebecca and Jesse went on a honeymoon to Hawaii." ( this is what she tells me, don't know if it's true.)

She begins a couple of sentences a day with "Hey Mister..." (A Michelle favorite) and knows who Elvis Presley is because of Jesse's embarrassing obsession with the man.  She wants to go to Graceland for the love of Pete.

They say that TV is shaping our children's views of the world.  Yep, I would say this is true and until I get the OK to run and play, "Full House" will continue to shape and mold Addie's little world.  Atleast she is getting a taste of the 90's, where the hair is big, acid jeans rock, and telephones still have cords.

"That's A-OK Dude." (Thanks Michelle)


  1. LOL... thanks for the memories!!

  2. I loved full house as a kid, but I can't watch it is just so cheesy! But I'm glad your daughter is getting some valuable knowledge from the show:)

  3. Full House is my Kindergartener's newest favorite addiction. She LOVES to watch the same episodes over and over (and lets face it they show the same episodes over and over). I don't mind this addiction though...Full House trumps Max and Ruby and Dora any day of the week!

  4. Hey it could be worse, Could be the Barney theme song or even better The lamb chop theme song for weeks!! "this is the song that never end"!!

  5. I'm 22 and the oldest of 7 kids, we all STILL sit around to watch that haha.

  6. I feel your pain! My kids are addicted to that and Family Matters. My sister and I loved it as kids, and still call each other Deedg.\SHellie
