Life Lessons From Popeye

I was going to post this under Little Comments but really I think this deserves a post of its own.

We have been watching the original Popeye cartoons here lately as a family before bed. The girls LOVE to imitate Olive Oyl.

“Oh Popeye, Popeye save me, save me I am just a dumb girl who can’t possibly do anything myself.”

They crack me up these girls of mine. 🙂

Miss Sky: “This is why I like X-men over all the other Marvel and “superhero” shows. The girls can stand on their own ! Yes even over The Avengers, Wasp gets hit once and she’s useless.”

I am amazed at all my girls are learning from watching cartoons. The comment about Wasp made me laugh SO hard because I didn’t even notice this ! I also remember watching Popeye as a child, when I could sneak it at grandma’s. My mom was worried about the needless violence not how it portrayed women :). Maybe because she made such a big deal about the violence I never noticed these other things before, but I don’t ever remember thinking about such things when I was Miss Sky’s age.

Television doesn’t *just* need to “educational” in order to learn from it. The girls are learning SO much about the history of their world by just watching “dumb ol’ cartoons”.
