OK so first time moms sorry this is not your post, at least not yet! I remember my first never watching TV, I was able to watch Ellen or any number of day time shows while he played and basically ignored the TV. Then when he was about 2.5 years old we started our love affair with the pups. Let me tell you the second and third children became obsessed with Paw Patrol very early in life. You can count on those pups and trusty Ryder to give you 20 mins to make dinner, god forbid sit down for more than a few seconds ( you best make a snack if this is your game plan, because you know those little jerks are going to NEED a SNACK stat) you can even attempt to shower…..also with the door open, we’re mom’s that’s just how it’s going to be but those magical pups might just make it a solo shower for 5 mins.
Now a few things I have questioned over my years of watching countless episodes. First is I’m a little offended that Netflix asks me after a undisclosed amount of time if I want to keep watching……um mm yes! isn’t that why I started at season one episode one, mommy needs to get shit done today, stop judging my parenting Netflix. All jokes aside, I don’t even know what I would do if I could not count on the pups to save the day? Best to not think about that! Secondly once you are forced to watch, you start to question how these magical pups have captured your children’s minds and hearts. Because my baby girl at 18 months can point and name all the pups and gets down right pissed off when the show ends. The more you think about it the more it makes zero sense, how does a 10 year old boy have a high tech look out with 6 pups, multiple vehicles but yet only drives the quad……because he made a robot dog to fly the plane, drive the boat and giant bus, perks right?! Also how are all the adults on the show basically inept (this is being nice, don’t even get me started on the Mayor), a little girl runs a business, where are the parents and if the pups can talk why can’t the cats??
My only conclusion is that Ryder is Batman only he’s decided to be good and almost too helpful. Instead of fighting bad guys he just saves the day the paw patrol way. Well Ryder you save the day almost every day in our house, I can count on you to get me through the early mornings that I refuse to enjoy until after a drink at least one cup of coffee, the times when my kids are fighting and the baby is crawling up my leg while I attempt to get dinner ready in time, the times we read the books on the pool deck while one child is in lessons and the others have to wait and watch, the countless hours of enjoyment with the endless amount of merchandise. All I know is ” when your in trouble, just yelp for help” all too soon they will be asking to watch even more annoying and strange shows….have you seen Skylanders, what the F it makes even less sense, Ninja Turtles always leads to “we’re just playing ninjas mom” while doing flying kicks off the couch. I’ll stick with the always helpful and kind pups for as long as I can get away with it.
