Hello M:R Nation –
I have been meaning (for some time now) to talk about the return of something near and dear to my heart. If you were a child of the late 80’s and early 90’s, you can relate. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or TMNT as the kids are calling it these days are back! I know there have some failed attempts over the past decade to bring these guys back, but someone finally struck a cord with parents and children alike (or at least with me and my son, Brae).
We eagerly await 10:00am every Saturday to watch the newest episodes on Nick. After the show, we will usually bust out the action figures and reenact what we just watched… Yes, I said action figures! The new TMNT action figures bring me right back to my childhood every time I get my hands on them. We are currently building up quite the collection for myself…cough,cough…I mean Brae.
As you can see in the picture above, my son has caught the TMNT fever pretty badly. He can’t go a day without watching a recorded episode, playing with the action figures or screaming HIYA sounds at the top of his lungs. They say you pass things down to your children- genes, habits, belongings, ect… Well,I fully intend to pass down some of childhood favorites to my children, but it seems that I have been beat to the punch on this one. Now If I can only get my daughter, Kynlee on this TMNT kick…HIYA! 🙂
