As a child of the 80s, I have vivid memories of watching Full House on Tuesday nights. Remember back in the day before the DVR and Netflix? When you actually had to watch live TV or miss it? DJ was the coolest young girl, who was honest, kind and wholesome. Everyone, including me, wanted to be her, or at the very least be her friend. Her family seemed perfect, even if her mom had passed away. And Uncle Jesse and Joey were the best “mannys” around!
Fuller House is just as heartwarming now, and DJ Tanner is now the coolest mom streaming. Like her TV daddy Danny, DJ has her Mommy Army of Stephanie and Kimmy helping her raise her three cute boys, which allows her to be a working mom, just like me. In fact, I’m not too proud to admit that I have a Mom Crush on her!
I would love to meet DJ at a Starbucks and just chat. She seems so approachable, and I totally want to raid her closet. In fact, as I was watching the second season while working out, I thought to myself, how the heck does she have the time to do all she does and look so good? (Duh, she has a stylist.) But oh Mylanta! What I wouldn’t give to have 1/2 her style.
To be honest, I think I would like Candace Cameron Bure just as much as DJ. I have started to follow her on both Instagram and Facebook, and she, too, is super likable. As a mom of 3, note just like DJ, who has a hockey husband on the road a lot, Candace is the default parent. It’s also no surprise to me that I have gravitated to using her as my role model, she Candace recently turned 40 (the new 20). She made a comeback as an actor and a woman, giving me hope that I will be able to do the same.
