For the past few months, I have gotten a huge kick out of the sites like BSC Headquarers, Tales of a former walking highlighter, and this Full House one, that seem to exist reliving/making fun of things that were popular when I was a kid. So much so, that I have decided to join the party and start my own blog revisiting my childhood passion, The Baby-Sitters Club books. Yes, it is basically taking an idea from others, but if a world could exist with the BSC and We (heart) Kids, I think a world can exist with several snarky blogs about the BSC. I plan to do reviews with my own twist, and may end up doing some of the spin offs or other series entirely. But really, as a kid these were my first love and I want them to be the focus of this blog.
As evidence of my old Baby-Sitters Club obsession: A photo from my BSC-themed 11th birthday party.
Everyone was supposed to dress up like a BSC member, and I was Kristy. Yes, I made that shirt. AND the hat. Yes, I was that much of a dork. See, Kristy was always my favorite because we shared a name, but I couldn't wear a sweater/turtleneck because my birthday is in July. Hence, the Krushers outfit.
Anyway, I once owned almost every single Baby-Sitters Club book, but it was lost when my parents sold their house. Since, I am now obsessed with rebuilding my collection, I am going to share my thoughts as I reread them. Enjoy.
