The day before my flight, I was in Target picking up a few (um, last minute) things. It was the first day of summer break for our local public schools and, yes, kiddos were everywhere. Two elementary-aged kids were running ahead of their dad and bumped into something. Dad called to them, “Hey guys…calm down. Remember…this is a store. Not Romper Room.”
Both kids stopped cold. Huh?? was written all over their face!! It was priceless. The kids starting giggling and, yes, it was rather amusing. The generation gap is alive and well. Please tell me you remember Romper Room – where each tv episode began with the Pledge of Allegiance and when milk and cookies were served, everyone recited the Romper Room prayer: “God is great, God is good. Let us thank Him for our food. Amen.”
But the absolute best part was eagerly waiting to see if your name would be called at the end of the show from the magic mirror!! Truly – Barney, Paw Patrol, Mickey’s Playhouse (I really have no idea what preschoolers are watching these days!)…..they’ve got nothing on Romper Room!!
(I am still in Thailand. Hopefully, when this posts there will be some pictures on my Instagram. You can find the link on my sidebar. If so, enjoy:) If not, I will be updating photos as soon as I am able! Thanks for continued prayers!)
