Little House Story

While I wait for my cold medicine to kick in I have a funny story. Everyone knows how much I love Little House on the Prairie. In fact, some would say my love for Little House borders on obsessive. I could literally sit and watch it all day long. I have seen most of the episodes at least ten times and there are some that I could tell you what they are going to say before they say it.

Last night when I was working I decided to take in my Little House DVDs and have the clients watch it. One of the things we try to do is educate them and show them that they can have a good time without drugs and alcohol. I thought my Little House DVDs would be the perfect way to show them.

When I told them what we were going to be watching most of them could not believe they were going to have to watch Little House. Most said they hadn't watched it since they were a child and others said they wanted something with some action. I knew that I could win over a few of them and so I put in the DVD.

Like I suspected most of them loved it. The room was quiet and they were all leaning in trying to hear the TV. I kind of laughed to myself when I looked around the room and saw all these clients so into Little House. At one point something happened on the show and Caroline became upset with Charles. One of the clients said, "Giiirl....you know she is about to kick Charles' ass". Yea, we still have a little bit of work to do.

Have you been to Laura's house in Missouri??? My mom is another huge fan of Little House.

Your story was funny!!! I could just hear the girl saying that. My Youngest daughter was in trouble with another person because of her mouth. A girl that heard everything said, Giiirrl, I woulda hit him. Youngest daughter just looked at her and inched away from her.
