This week on Hello Giggles!


Stop by Hello Giggles and check out this week's column..."Jordan Catalano and My Mom Reality."

Leave a comment and let me know if you can relate! I'd love to see your responses over there.  I'm also going to be writing for them weekly rather than bi-monthly, so you can see my column every Wednesday from here on out.

And as always, thanks so much for your support guys. Virtual hug, high five, you name it!

  2. So so funny! I know exactly what you mean. Maybe it happens once you become a parent. And I think Charlie is pretty awesome too. ;)

  3. i don't have a facebook account, so i can't comment on hello giggles (at least i don't think i can.) i just wanted to let you know that i can totally relate to your column today. there are many, many times that i take a breath and think, 'wow, i'm turning into my mother!' hah.

    anyway, i also wanted to let you know that even though it's only been two weeks, i am really enjoying your column. i love your blog, but there's something different about your writing in hello giggles. you are a super talented writer. just thought i would let you know. :)

  4. Dani, I just had this SAME experience. With My So Called Life, no less!

    My husband and I were watching the box set and I had to stop an episode midway through to freak out a little bit about the fact that I now sympathize with Angela's parents instead of Angela. Really puts things in perspective, doesn't it? Ha.

    And, yeah, that English teacher? Totally hot.

  5. I rewatched MSCL a few months ago, and while I found myself sympathizing with Patty a lot more than I did when I was 15, or even 20 or 25, I still want to shake her. I'm not sure if I actually relate to her, but I get now why she is how she is. As the mother of a now 14 year old, I sometimes find myself thinking "What would Patty Chase do" and then trying to NOT do that, if you know what I mean.

  6. I tried to leave this on the HG page but couldn't... That's so funny that you just wrote about My So Called Life and the way that you view it changing. My girlfriend just watched it the other day and called me to discuss the, "Wow, I never noticed this but the parents are really great on this show... I only used to watch the teenagers." We proceeded to both watch a little bit of 90210-yup, same thing happened. Very interesting. Also... the BEST tool for getting boogers out is the loop end of a bobby pin. Seriously. I've been a nanny for 10 years and am a new mom. Knock yourself out! =)

  7. loved this. i haven't found myself relating to strictly parents (probably since i'm not one) but i have definitely begun to relate more to adults in general rather than children or teens (or even young 20's like myself, i know, i'm a traitor!).

    your columns are great (how could something that relates my so-called life to actual life not be great?), and i love reading your blog--so basically, keep up the awesome work.

  8. The comment form on the other site wasn't working for me, so here is my comment:

    "OK this is hysterical because I just watched ALL of My So Called Life on Netflix this past April (I LOVED that show in high school) and one night as I was watching I said to my husband Matt, "Oh my gosh. I'm an adult!" and he replied, "Huh?" and I said the EXACT same thing you said in that post, "I'm more like the mom now than Angela!" I couldn't believe how Angela was treating her mom and was thinking, "I'd never let my kid talk to me like that". Of course at the tender age of 15 when the show was originally on, I thought the mom was so annoying and Angela was right.

    Ah these moments are so strange! Growing up is both wonderful and heartbreaking.

  9. Oh My So-Called Life. It's been lingering in my Netflix queue forever, but I've been passing it up to watch newer things.
    I'm a 33 year old without children, I secretly feel about 17... but when I watch TV or movies, I definitely relate to the adults more than the teenagers or college crowd.
    And the moment I realize it, it's all "hold the phone, when did I get so old?!? And how in the heck did 1995 become 16 years later to 2011?! And why do I enjoy week wacking and pulling dead flowers off of plants?"
    Being an adult is pretty rad, even if it is being stoked about a clean kitchen, new running shoes, new brake pads, getting caught up on laundry, and crawling into bed early (9:30p) with your husband on a Saturday night.
    Great post, thanks for sharing!

  14. I am still at the stage in my life where every move jordan makes, makes me weak in the knees and patty still drived me crazy! I do agree with Rayanne though, Mr Chase is a hunk.
    I am twenty eight now, and I can only imagine these teen girl feelings will burn out soon!
    Great article! My so called life really was amazing, and ended far too soon.

  15. I saw your blog on Hello Giggles before I saw your post about you posting on Hello Giggles, and the whole way through I kept thinking "is that Danielle from Sometimes Sweet?" by the time I got to "henry" I knew it was. That feature was probably my favorite entry of yours. SO GOOD! and funny :]

  16. Danielle,
    Your post over at Hello Giggles was just amazing. I'm still teatering between the Angela liking Jordan phase and Angela's mom phase, but I'm sure that will all change once a little one shows up. I loved the comparison and it was totally relatable.

    I'm so glad you have this opportunity to write with Hello Giggles and I look forward to reading every Wednesday!
