My Little Pony

I'm a child of the 80's. I loved My Little Pony and Care Bears and ThunderCats. But mostly I loved My Little Pony. I was a My Little Pony Mommy...

and yes, I was happy as can be.

I watched the TV show...
every day.

I had quite a few. I had some earth ponies, some unicorn ponies and a few flutter
ponies too.

But my favorite
pony was a twinkle eyes pony...

Sweet Stuff.
I got her when I was 6. For my birthday or maybe Christmas, I think. We were
living in Hawaii. Very soon after I got her, my family took a trip to the Big Island.
We were camping and there was snow on the ground. I know that sounds
weird...snow in Hawaii, but we were high enough up in the mountains that
it was possible.I remember we went hiking and we saw the black, cooled lava and it
smelled funny. I also remember a little park near our camp ground. There was a
merry-go-round. And that's where I believe it happened. I lost Sweet Stuff.
I equate that entire trip to this one sad fact. Well, that and the fact that I got
attacked by a big black lab while collecting newspaper with my mom for the
fireplace in our cabin, but I digress.The point of this post is that I loved My Little
Pony. And it's back!
And Eva LOVES it.
And I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty cool. One thing I absolutely love about being a mom is being able to share all the things I loved as a child with my children.
So Christmas should be a blast this year. I can't wait to get all of my ...er...her new My Little Pony stuff. If I'm lucky, maybe I can find another Sweet Stuff pony :)
