Her’s Day Thursday

Y’all know that I am all about strong women and raising Huff the Tot to be a self-assured, hard-working, kind girl that turns into an amazing woman. This is why I try to find books and shows that highlight strong female characters. I am super excited because Nick Jr. just started a new show called Nella the Princess Knight!

According to the Nickelodeon website, Nella “…isn’t your average princess, but she is a princess-knight — a hero unlike any who have come before her. Working with loyal knight Sir Garrett, his trusty steed Clod and glamorous unicorn Trinket, Nella breaks barriers, challenges expectations and fights for justice every time the group heads out on an adventure. No matter how tough of a challenge she faces, 8-year-old Nella always stays true to herself through her determination, power and courage. The preschool series features a social-emotional curriculum intended to foster relationship development and empower preschoolers to be courageous.”

I love this so much! I just wish we had cable so Huff the Tot could catch some of the episodes. (Come on, Netflix, help a momma out!) Just check out this teaser trailer:

 

The show debuted on February 6th and is on every morning at 9:00 a.m., CST!

I come from a long line of TV lovers. As a kid, one of the ways we would bond as a family would be to watch Home Improvement, China Beach, or something on ABC’s TGIF. Needless to say, I heart TV.

 

I used to watch all kinds of shows and would stay up-to-date on all the episodes. I’d chat with friends and coworkers about theories and things I wished the writers would make happen.

 

Then, I had a kid…and my show-watching changed. A LOT.

Now, instead of humming the theme song to New Girl, I’m sing the opening to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood (won’t you ride along with me; ride along!). Now, instead of talking about what happened on Scandal, I talk about who guest starred on Sesame Street.

 

But with guest stars like this, can you blame me?

I won’t lie though; sometimes the children’s shows are pretty good! I get sucked in and two hours later, I have nothing to show for my life except an indention in my recliner the shape of my butt.

What about you? Have you found yourself watching Mickey Mouse Club House over Game of Thrones?
