When I first became a mother I was determined to do everything right. My daughter was NEVER going to watch television or play Video Games. We were always going to read, and think, and use our imaginations. Well, reality hit pretty hard one evening when I went to get J5 from my parent’s house after my husband and I had been on a date. To my surprise, my mom had watched Old Yeller with my 18 month old daughter, the same daughter who was NEVER going to watch TV. Of course, I wasn’t angry with my mother, she was the best free babysitter around!

When I walked into the room and saw J5 watching movies on the bed she jumped to her feet and said, “Mommy, I’m watching the dog old yeller!” The excitement in her voice was contagious and I found myself anxiously asking her to tell me all about it. “The boys had this big dog and it chased raccoons and trapped the mean pigs, but then the wolf bitted it and it died but it’s okay because the boys got a NEW PUPPY!!”
