Miley has been on a Nancy Drew kick for the past 6 months or so. She's got the books and is creating her own mysteries. We even saw the movie Nancy Drew. And I also found the really old black and white Nancy Drew movies based on the book.
So Miley and her friends liked the movie but the old black and white movies were not well received.
"Tell them they called Ned, Ted," Miley just whispered over my shoulder.
Yeah, they called Ned Ted and Nancy's dad was kind of scary; not at all like the polyester clad dad of the show I watched as a child. Bam! And then I remembered the Nancy Drew series I watched every Sunday after early service----I bet Miley would love those. OK I'll be honest I was tad disappointed when it was Nancy Drew and not Shaun Cas, I mean, the Hardy Boys.
So I found the series on Netflix and they LOVE it all the way down to that cheesey music. I just watch the Miley and her friends in their PJs (tweens love slumber parties) sit glued to the screen and not a Disney star in sight! (Miley has even promised her friends we would watch 'The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula' for her birthday/mystery/slumber party in a few weeks.)
And I have to admit I really like it to. As an adult, I appreciate the acting on Nancy Drew show--don't laugh, she's really pretty good. The Hardy Boys-well come on, they were not hired for their acting ;) It also takes me back to Sunday morning, out of my dress and in some lazy shorts and a tee shirt with my sister. And if I shut my eyes, I swear I can smell my mom making breakfast.
Well I've got to run--Miley is itching to watch 'The Ghostwriter's Cruise'.
