I think that I first really watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 when my friend Martha's family was here last summer. Her thirteen-year-old daughter Hannah was a big fan, and so it was on more than once over those few days. I don't know why I had never watched it, I just hadn't.
Now when I'm home by myself while Kyle's at school, I often watch the re-runs that come on mid-morning while I'm surfing the net or folding laundry. I just caught the new wedding episode tonight, and I loved it.
So, I've come late to the party, but better late than never right?
It's not the first time it's happened. Amanda was late to the whole Disney tween culture, but now she (and I!) love Zack and Cody, Hannah Montana, and Phineas and Ferb.
I think that we got into Zack and Cody when I was sent a DVD to review for 5 Minutes for Mom. Then her friends at school said, "I can't believe you don't watch Phineas and Ferb. You have to watch it; you'll love it." She watched it, and then said that Terry and I just had to watch it too, and now we all love it and can sing the theme song (Terry doesn't sing, but Amanda, Kyle, and I do).
What show or fad or music or style took you a few years to catch on to? What was it that finally tipped the scales for you?
