List: Rejected Story Lines for Paw Patrol

Maybe the pups don’t need to grow up.

 “Pups Save a Lonely Heart”

At Farmer Yumi’s annual holiday bash, Mayor Goodway has a little too much eggnog and starts to get a little too friendly with Ryder; noticing the uncomfortable situation (Ryder is only ten, after all), Zuma and Skye try to set the mayor up with each of the three adult male residents of Adventure Bay, including Jake, the blonde guy we see sometimes in group scenes, and Mr. Porter.

Random Thoughts While Watching TV with my Kids


Super cute, but they were probably only sitting together so they could both watch something on the computer. (I keep waiting, but I have not yet received my Mother of the Year award…)

Paw Patrol:

The inside of Mayor Goodway’s purse must be filthy.

What is the population of Adventure Bay? 16?

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood:

X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat are totally an item, even if their treehouse is a duplex. I’ve argued with other moms about this. There might not be any supporting evidence, but neither is there anything to disprove it. Though I’m sure there are episodes I haven’t seen.

Clifford the Big Red Dog:

How big are those poops? And how does one dispose of them?

Where does one acquire barrels of Clifford-sized dog treats? And how do the Howards afford them, especially on top of the mansion-sized dog house and park-sized backyard?

Masha and the Bear

I love this show. Also funny: the boy calls her “Marsha” and the girl runs around saying “Masha, Masha, Masha!” which totally gives me Brady Bunch flashbacks. (No, I’m not that old. But I’ve always loved Nick at Nite.)

The Great British Baking Show

Such relief that my kids like something I like.

Am I making my kids food-obsessed?

Am I building the foundation for childhood obesity?

Is it not the most adorable thing in the world to have two small children ask to watch “baking” or “Momma’s baking show” rather than plaguing me with Power Rangers, modern-day Ninja Turtles, and similar?

Any of the Winnie the Pooh movies

Why did I introduce them to this?

Didn’t I used to like Pooh?

How can one watch the first thirty minutes of the same movie six thousand times and not give a thought to the ending?
