Be glad if you don't know who this is. You are a better person than I.
It was late, I couldn't sleep. We've cut down our tv package to just one notch basically above "bare bones". There was nothing on. REALLY! Except...well..."Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" was on.
I know, I know. I said I was trying to resist watching it. It's like trying not to look at an accident on the side of the road.
I looked. I watched 1 1/2 episodes of Honey Boo Boo before I fell asleep.
You know, it wasn't AS bad as I thought. It was actually pretty funny. I think the one thing I really noticed is that although there is much one could criticize about their lifestyle, they do all seem to really love one another. I've seen plenty of upper middle class families who do everything that is "politically correct", but you don't see the love and camaraderie that you see in Honey Boo Boo's family. A mom who lets her kid eat cheese balls for breakfast but loves her kid and gives her kid the attention and care they deserve is better in my book, than the mom that provides a home cooked organic breakfast and then ships their kid off to school, daycare and violin lessons until 7pm when they're too tired to give them any quality time or attention after preparing a gourmet, organic dinner and tucking them into 300 thread count sheets.
Or maybe it was just too late at night and I dreamed half of it... :-P
I will admit, there are some jaw-dropping things on the show. When I heard they were going to ride ATVs I prayed silently they would put helmets on the kids (and they did, and they even seemed like really good ones, like schuberth helmets, not like garage sale ones). And June did stop her kids from swimming in the lake that they were warned might have bacteria. She let them do nice, safe, mud diving instead. Lol....
I don't recommend you watch this show, I'm just coming clean.
