My Husband Is a Dance Mom - April 23, 2012

There’s a strange phenomenon going on in my house these days… 

I’ll admit that my poor husband is frequently “forced” to watch multiple variations of the Real Housewives on a regular basis. He even has to put up with my Bettheny Ever After fascination (love her!), So You Think You Can Dance (can’t wait for the next season) and even The Bachelor (why do they ALWAYS pick the wrong girl?). I would think that when the opportunity presented itself, he would insist on watching a more “manly” type of a show. After all, his go-to favorites include anything on Spike TV and the Golf Channel. So it was with much surprise the other night when he said, “I can’t wait for the new Dance Moms tonight!” 

What? Did I hear him correctly?

“Dance Moms?”  I said.

“IT IS AWESOME!” he exclaimed. “These women are CRAZY!”

It got me thinking about the “reality” TV shows that we all watch on a regular basis. One thing is for sure…there is nothing REAL about any of them. What if there was a show about real moms living a real life - - in our sweats (no…not Juicy Couture sweats) with no makeup, cleaning our own toilets, packing peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for lunch, driving our kids to soccer practice (since we don’t have a limo to take them for us) and having daily meltdowns after a long day. I don’t know about you, but I feel like there is plenty of reality in my life!  I think that when it comes down to it though, maybe we just need a little escape from our own “crazy” and want a chance to peek into someone else’s over-the-top, well scripted life that…. just maybe…makes us feel a little more sane.
