Did you have a show that you loved growing up?
I wasn’t a huge tv watcher.
But, one show that I did LOVE was Punky Brewster.
I wanted to BE Punky Brewster. She was so cool. I wanted to have clothes like hers: the bright colors and OH, the bandanas! Those were rad. Wasn’t that what we said back then? Rad? Or maybe Bad? I don’t remember. Because I’m old.
Plus, Punky was a brunette. And yet still the lead. Proving you didn’t have to be blonde to be fabulous. Um, yeah, my turned blonde later in life all by itself. *cough*
Punky is all grown up now, but still cool as ever. Seriously. Soleil Moon Frye is a mom to two girls and has a book coming out next month called “Happy Chaos: From Punky to Parenting and My Perfectly Imperfect Adventures in Between.”
My squeeeee moment: I actually got to ask Punky aka Soleil a few questions recently. I had to restrain myself from asking the questions that 8 year-old me wanted to ask and instead, ask about parenting.
You can head over and check out my Punky moment over on Babble. Plus, while you are there, you can enter to win a copy of her book. No jumping through hoops, I promise. Simply leave a comment over there and you’re entered. Second possible entry if you comment with the name of a show/star you loved when you were growing up.
