The Rugrats: Where Are They Now?

An update on the lives of your favorite babies.

The Rugrats: Where Are They Now?

Rugrats was a show all 90's kids loved to watch. It had plenty of adventures and fun, and a couple of movies. Rugrats even got it's own spin-off: All Grown Up! However, even in All Grown Up! the babies we grew to love weren't truly grown up; they were only in high school. If college has taught me anything, its that I was nowhere near an adult in high school. So if Nickelodeon released another spin-off now of the grown up babies what would they really be like? I have a few ideas...

Tommy Pickles

Tommy finally ditched the diaper for fancy Tom Ford suits. Despite his lack of hair as a baby, Tommy's got some of the best hair in L.A. (many credit that to a secret hair transplant). Tommy took his love of video games and adventure and became a video game designer. At first, he planned on just sticking around town. He tried to make it big as a professional gamer, but Stu and Didi got tired of him sitting around all day in essentially the same outfit he wore as a baby. Using some money his grandfather left him, Tommy decided to go to college and get a degree in video game design. His games quickly took off and were praised for their graphics and interesting story lines. During his latest interview when asked about his inspiration for his games Tommy said, "The adventures might seem crazy, but they were all based on real things that happened to me and my childhood friends." Reptar often appears as a hidden easter egg in Tommy's games.


After high school ended Chuckie decided to get rid of his obnoxious glasses for contacts. He also figured out what hair gel was and learned to tame the red beast that grew out of his head. Chuckie attended an Ivy League school and found himself on Wall Street. While he is still very shy and cowardly, the rigor of his work helps him hide away in his office for hours on end doing math and whatever else Wall Street workers do He says that Wall Street is as adventurous as he wants to get. He revisits many of his childhood adventures as nightmares. He has yet to marry, but is currently seeing someone who is very talkative and brave and pushes him out of his comfort zone like Tommy did so many years before. He still misses his mom very much, but he has a good relationship with his father.

Phil & Lil

The twins continued to do everything together. They both attended the same college within their small town. There they both got business degrees so they could open up their own landscaping business: Lawns By Phil & LIi, or Lawns by Lil & Phil. They're still arguing about who's name goes first. Either way, they spend everyday digging in the dirt like they used to as kids. Phil and Lil moved out of their parents house to buy houses right next to each other. While they don't dress exactly the same anymore, they do wear matching colors most days. While the landscaping business doesn't seem like it would bring them much money, they happened to be the only landscapers in town. Since they had so much practice as kids they're very good at their job and as a result have never had trouble making money. They always talk about flying out to L.A. or New York to visit their friends, but it has yet to happen.


Oh Angelica, the big brat. In terms of her attitude, nothing has changed. However she made it big like her other neighborhood friends too. She decided college wasn't for her so while working at her minimum wage job in a mall clothing store a talent agent discovered her singing along to the radio in the store. She wasn't great, but who has real talent these days? Within the year Angel J, her stage name, was everywhere. Her and Tommy frequently have lunch together in L.A. despite previously hating each other. In recent months, Angelica has taken up acting and modeling. Her first movie, The Babysitter, will be hitting theaters any day now. Rumors are also swirling that she is going to be the first model to walk AND perform at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.


The relationship between Tommy and Dil got more and more strained as the years went on. Dil always brings up the time Tommy tried to get rid of him in the woods; he often threatens to tell their parents. However Dil is doing just fine too. He is in law school at the moment and hopes to work as a lawyer for families and help settle divorces or disputes about the will. When asked he will tell you this dream of his isn't because their parents always treated Tommy better. Dil is also in the process of changing his name because he thinks no one will want to have a lawyer who is named Dil Pickles.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
