My subject is: Your family is contacted about having your own reality show on TV. What do you call it? What would you try to show off? What would you try to hide from cameras?

One of my favorite (and least favorite) things about these blogging challenges, is how they truly are a challenge for me. They tend to make me think, and usually take me way out of my comfort zone. This challenge is no exception.
Reality TV. Something I know basically nothing about. Seriously. I have never been a huge watcher of reality TV. I have plenty of reality in my life. I do have a serious, and sick addiction to the show Hoarders. Bad. I really should never watch that.
I will tell you right now, nobody in their right mind would ever ask me to do a reality TV show. If they did, I really wouldn't say okay. For the sake of this fabulous subject, I will simply pretend it happened, and answer accordingly.
I know it may not be the best name, but I would definitely name it Family Jules. C'mon! You know that is FUNNY! You laughed. Right?! Well, if you didn't, don't worry. It is not a comedy. Wait. Maybe it is. Chadski does make me laugh quite a bit, and Weewee is just the cutest/funniest little girl. Definitely, not a total comedy though. I tend to be very serious. Life tends to be dramatic.
What would I try to showcase? Weewee. She is fantastic. Truly. She really is. She is a gift to this world, and I would want the world to enjoy her. She is 13 months old, and yet it is already so obvious how beautiful her soul is. She overcame so many odds. God would not have enabled her to survive, if he did not have a great plan for her. I am sure he does, and I am certain she will exceed all expectations. I know, I know. I am very biased. I cannot help it. When I look at Weewee I see true greatness. I would definitely share her and showcase her for the world to see. Now, I say this, and at the same time, I would actually want to protect her from being so overexposed. I guess this is one of the reasons I would not actually do a reality show.
I would also showcase Chadski. He is amazing. He is my real Superman, only Superman is kinda lame, so I will say he is my real Batman! :) He is such a hard worker. An excellent father. A beautiful person, inside and out. I feel like he doesn't get enough rewards and recognition, not that he would want them anyway. I would definitely showcase his greatness, and hope that in some way he benefited from it.
I would hide myself. For starters, the camera adds ten pounds. Yes, I have lost a lot of weight, but I am nowhere near my goal, and ten more pounds would not do me any favors. Plus, I am not funny or cool or entertaining. I would be the dud. Truly. I am so far from perfect. I guess we all are. I get angry. I get emotional. I have my bitchy (this is an adult blog) moments. I do cuss. I do cry. I do yell. Eh, maybe I am not as boring as I thought? No, really I am. My life is boring. I would also try to hide my coffee addiction. It has always been bad, but since becoming a mom, it has gotten out of control. I seriously want a coffee IV! Somebody invent that! Please!
Honestly, the show would consist of me sitting at home all week, playing with Weewee and telling her to stop getting into things she shouldn't. Then the weekends would consist of Chadski and I doing the above together. Occasionally, Embee would make her guest appearances. Those would probably be the fan favorite episodes. Embee is a star. Embee and Weewee together is AMAZING. I genuinely love seeing them together. You should see the look on Weewee's face when she sees Embee. It is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. The love is so intense and bright, like a million watt bulb. I totally get it. I love my sisters too.
Speaking of my sisters, and family... My family is a bunch of nuts! Truly! Not all bad nuts. Mostly good nuts. When reality TV/Hollywood gets involved, people tend to materialize. So the show could actually be decent. I am thinking my family would visit one by one. That would be entertainment. Plus, I'd get to see my family! Wait... maybe this reality show idea isn't such a bad idea. Think I could do it just long enough to get visits from all my family!? Where do I sign up?! I kid, I kid. Though, I really would love for all my family to visit. I miss them and I am quite homesick.
The moral of this blog is... My life should not be a reality TV show, but if it were, nobody would watch it. Though, they do watch a show about people buying auctioned off storage containers... So, maybe people would watch?
Now, I would really love to know... Do you watch reality TV? What is your favorite show? Tell me in the comments! Then be sure to visit all the other SSS posts!
