Little People, Big World

From a rerun tonight, when son Zach is recovering from surgery…

I love this show…it shows people as they are where they are, in the middle of their parenting time, or in the middle of their  adolescence.

The kid not wanting to admit to his postoperative pain, the father doing an old fashioned thing, trying to shield him before the surgery as to how painful it might be.  He has to be on crutches for awhile, and his mom asks him to use a chair for safety, he opts for the crutches and slips on some frost his first day back at school, and …

“I hate being crippled.  It pisses me off,” when experience gives him a nudge in the direction of using the chair.

And the siblings breaking my biggest unwritten rule:

Don’t play with assistive tech that is not your own, you might mess it up.

Very real.

I’ve decided to split off posts, past, present and future about film, television, music, actors, and acting to a different blog here...

While this one one will continue as is…
