Life Lessons From Roseanne

Who else loves the show Roseanne?




It's one of my favorites.


I'm so glad reruns come on frequently. I always tune in even if I've seen the episode 34289723 times.

As I watch, I sometimes think, "Man. If this show aired today, the uppity moms would have a field day." I mean, you have mom groups whining about certain shows and commercials. Keep your TV off then? Hello?


Here's what I imagine they'd complain about:



--Roseanne promotes obesity. People will watch and think it's okay to be fat.


My thoughts: I want some cake!


--Roseanne shouts at her kids! You shouldn't shout at kids. Parents should be saying the things on this chart:


My thoughts: I'm sorry, but this chart is not for me. It's fantastic if it works for you, but I do yell. I do tell my kids, "If you're going to be pissy, go upstairs." I do say, "Don't use that word. It's for adults only."





--Roseanne doesn't spend her money properly. It's why she's always poor.



My thoughts: Welcome to the real world. A lot of people are struggling.


--Roseanne feeds her family junk. Have you seen the pantry? Whenever she goes grocery shopping, she's pulling out ice cream and bags of potato chips.




My thoughts: If it's not your family, why do you care? (Hides all my chips. And ice cream.)


--Darlene is a brat. She needs to be properly disciplined.



My thoughts: Eh. Some people are just moody. See: my kid Natalie. See also: Kate Gosselin's kid Mady.



I appreciate Roseanne and always will.


Another Mom I'm like?

Parenting: they do it right.

  1. Oh God I haven't seen a rerun of Roseanne in maybe ten years but I've seen the most episodes more than once. As much as some would hate on her if the show aired today, I have to say that I didn't feel like the show was a fake like I feel for many of today's shows. Some of them literally have me yelling at the TV and rolling my eyes.

  9. I love the Roseanne because it's real. Have you ever seen her reality show set on her macadamia farm in Hawaii? She's just as "real" in real life. I can't remember what it's called though - sorry :)!

  12. Frankie Heck is my absolute favorite person ever. The writers have her nailed - she is incredible. I didn't watch Roseanne much when I was younger and only get two TV channels now so I'm not as familiar with Roseanne...but she sounds like someone I'd enjoy hanging out with hahah! I may pass on the chips but she's got a friend in me when it comes to spending money the wrong way....

  17. I loved Roseanne! I never thought how parents these days would react to her though. Wouldn't it be funny to hear her react to their comments? Like on Jimmy Kimmel's Mean Tweets!

  18. i don't believe any mother who says they don't yell at their kids. straight up, kids can be damn annoying and irritating as hell and YES YOU WILL YELL AT THEM because they do shit to make you mad. kids should know what makes their parents angry so that they don't do that crap but when your'e always telling them to please dont do this or that, they're just going to keep doing this because NO ONE talks like that when they're angry.

  19. Love this! I get so annoyed with parents who think they have to be so sensitive about everything. They're kids, they are not as fragile as you think!

  21. I love Roseanne and The Middle. I feel like they captured reality better than reality shows. I can relate to both of those moms.

  22. Now, I want to watch some Roseanne :)

  23. I loved Roseanne so much and it's streaming on netflix now so I might just do a little binge-watch. Totally true though - people would have a field day tearing the show and the characters apart. Ah, my childhood. :)

  24. Amen to that! We love the Hecks!

  25. Giggling. I loved both those shows. A perfect parent I am not.
