The 5 Worst Kids Shows From A Parent Who has The Theme Songs Stuck In Her Head

If you're a parent, you're familiar with the ridiculous amount of children's shows that are readily available. You probably find yourself mumbling the theme songs under your breath at times. Some of these shows are great in that they teach valuable lessons. Others are just downright obnoxious. With the variety available, it's pretty easy to weed out the good from the bad. The following are some of the worst.

1. "Peppa Pig"

This show teaches absolutely nothing to the children viewing the show. The show follows the life of Peppa, a small pig, and her friends who represent different animal species. Every single time one of the animals says anything, it's followed by the respective sound of the animal. The vast majority of the show focuses on Peppa, so quite a bit of snorting is involved. There are no life lessons and the majority of the time the children in the show are left to their own devices.

2. "Max and Ruby"

This show focuses on a pair of sibling bunnies. Parents and adults in general are scarce in this cartoon. Ruby is the elder sister of a wily and mischievous young Max. Ruby herself is barely out of her beginning years. She's a member of a Girl Scout-like organization, experiments with make-up, and still plays with dolls. There is no logical explanation for her to be taking care of her brother on her own. Ruby is also generally so focused on her own activities that she constantly neglects her brother's needs. Not to mention, the theme song is literally their names being played on repeat.

3. "Caillou"

Caillou is a little boy who constantly whines about literally everything on the planet. The minute that he doesn't get his way in even the slightest form it's met with the overly whiny voice of Caillou. His parents and other adults in his life constantly appease him in order to end his complaining. Not to mention the theme song is one of the worst things to have stuck in your head at the end of the day.

4. "Teen Titans Go"

The older Teen Titans focused on the super heroes and their development into young adults. They battled evil villains while also dealing with puberty on their own. However, with the switch to Teen Titans Go, the once lovable heroes turned into a joke. The entire subplot of the show is to showcase how immature and irresponsible these "heroes" are.

5. "Spongebob Squarepants"

This one is relatively self-explanatory. The theme song is awful, but unfortunately catchy enough that it can get stuck in your head for days on end. The main character of the show prides himself on being the most obnoxious person to ever exist. His laugh sets teeth on edge and he lacks the intelligence to properly function the vast majority of the time. Not to mention, the show often delves into darker subject matter in the form of bad jokes.

To The Girl Who Still Has Her Mom This Christmas

To the girl with who is blessed enough to have her momma this Christmas.

     To the girl who is blessed enough to have her momma this Christmas, please remember to soak every last bit of it in. 

      Please remember to hug her so tight, that the way she smells is locked into your nose. Listen to all the stories you've heard a million times, like you've never heard a single one. Help her, even if it seems completely silly to you, help her mix that cake. Laugh, oh please laugh. Laugh at all her corky ways, at the way she mispronounces words, try's to be hip and use new found lingo, or how she cusses when she forgot to get the rolls out of the oven but quickly asks the Lord for forgiveness. Remember her laugh, etch it into your brain. Make her happy, if she wants to go riding around looking at Christmas lights down the same streets you've went for years, do it. Don't fuss, take her advice, agree to just disagree on things. It's not worth it. Most importantly, remind her over and over how much you love her. 

     Because unlike you, I'm not able to see my mom on Christmas. I'm not able to see her on birthdays, Thanksgiving, or any other occasion. My time with her is up. Death is the most permanent heartbreak. 

     How I long to hear her voice, her laugh. To feel her tight embrace. Smell, oh god, what I would give to just be able to smell her. I would absolutely love to go riding around for hours while she ohhs and ahhs at every single house we pass. If I had the opportunity I'd tell her just how much I love her, how I'm so thankful for all the sacrifices she made for me. In fact, I'm not sure I could ever tell her enough. 

      Some days I wake up and it still doesn't feel real. Others, I panic trying to remember exactly how she sounded. Because, I don't want to forget. I don't want to forget a single characteristic about her. Not one. 

     Take time, not just on holidays, or special occasions to be with your mom. Even if it's just you two piled up watching reruns of "The Little House on the Prairie", soak it in. 

    You only get one momma. Nobody could ever take her place. She's your rock.
