Jean in Newcastle Posted October 28, 2012 Share Posted October 28, 2012 (edited) We've been having a "Beav-a-thon" at our house. I don't know why everyone says that family was so perfect. They argue, get into scrapes, the parents mess up and have to apologize to the kids. . . Actually, despite the slight change in era, it really is remarkably like our home. Right now the episode where Ward Cleaver takes the family to a cabin in the woods to get away from the movies and the comic books is running in the background. With the exception of June Cleaver who is still wearing a pencil skirt and sweater set, the theme of getting the family away from media and back to nature is quite modern! In fact, I think think the Cleaver family was a bit more lenient than we are. I would have pulled the plug on Beaver's friendship with Larry (who got him to try smoking) and Wally's friendship to Eddie (who, well, is Eddie). ETA: Oh wait, June changed into some nicely pressed jeans and a gingham blouse! Edited October 28, 2012 by Jean in Newcastle Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
