My Little Ponies.
We all know them. We all remember them from our youth.
Well, they never truly went away and now, they are back!
Toys, clothes, cards, TV shows, documentaries and movies.
Oh yes, they are back and my kids are obsessed with them ALL!
Yes, I said my kids. My 9 year old son is just as into them as my 3 year old daughter. He calls himself a “Brony” and apparently, there is a whole sub-culture of boys (and grown men) that love ponies!
There are shirts for boys that are bronies!
Then, there is the TV show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
5 seasons, only 4 on Netflix, of pure My Little Pony. My kids watch this damn show from morning til night and those lyrical ponies sure know how to get songs stuck in your head!
Seriously, I’ll be in my car, forget to turn the radio on and all of a sudden, I am singing this:
Once I figure out what’s going on, I have to wonder how my children have infected my brain so easily!
Those damn pony people are even worse!
That’s right, they have pony people! It’s some kind of parallel universe thing!
They call them the Equestria Girls and yes, they are even worse!
Because the songs get stuck in your head and you actually start to LIKE them!
Then you find yourself enjoying them!
So yes, both of my kids are obsessed with My Little Ponies.
And yes, in my #MommyReality, My Little Pony is on my TV, my phone, my computer and my tablet, in one form or another, ALL DAY LONG!
