**This giveaway has ended and the winner has been chosen, but I welcome you all to still throwback with me!
I can’t tell you how many times “the cartoons I watched when I was little were so much better than this crap!” has come out of my mouth since having kids.
Seriously. I can’t even count how many. The number is that high. And for some reason, the kids never believe me! They are totally convinced the junk they watch is superior to some of my childhood favorites. It was time to school them. Not just on totally tubular shows from the 80’s and 90’s, but some of my favorite toys, too! It’s perfect timing since this month Netflix challenged me to introduce some old favorites of mine to my kids and see what happened. It was time for a THROWBACK!
My favorite toy growing up was my Easy Bake Oven. I spent every afternoon making cakes and brownies, and cursing because I could NEVER get the fudge right, and then getting sent to my room. This past Christmas, I… I mean SANTA, got Parker an Easy Bake Oven and guess who is totally eating his words (pun TOTALLY intended)??
He LOVES it!
These were supposed to be “truffles”…
But they were more like CAKE balls. They were still delicious and a lot of fun (read: messy as all get out!)- so that counts as a WIN for the throwback challenge!
Now that I had them all good and warmed up with my ultimate rightness, it was time to take on the TV. Shows from my childhood are not exactly easy to come by if I want to put them on my TV and not take over my beloved computer.
It’s safe to say that I am the clear victor in this Netflix Throwback Challenge, because every day Parker and Holden request to pop on the Roku Netflix was kind enough to send me, flip it to Netflix, and to watch super cheesy episodes of Goosebumps that used to scare the pee out of me growing up. I think they have now seen every single episode twice. Up next, Jem and the Holograms and old-school Smurfs!
Have a Throwback day with your kid/s! Who knows, maybe it will get you out of watching endless hours of Spongeturd!

Vodka might rhyme with Friday, but what rhymes with Tuesday is "SHUT THE HELL UP AND LET ME HAVE MY COFFEE!"
Am I a "housewife"? Technically yes. Do I do "housewife" things? UM. NO. I fail. holdinholden.com/2014/08/i-am…
