I think the Growing Pains, "Return of the Seavers" was wonderful. The show was so realistic in that the kids that are married all wanted the parents to stay put and the kids that are younger could care less. That is so real life. You don't realize what your parents are all about till you are married and then have children. Then the way the cell phones rang all the time is so real life. Every place you look someone is on a cell phone. Then the tone to the theme song was too cute. I also liked the way Kirk and Chelsea played their real life as close as possible in the movie. Like when they talked about adoption. That is wonderful for people to know that it is OK to adopt. I love that theme song, especially since my twins played the role of Tracy Gold's baby in this movie. Even though she didn't have the baby till the last 10 minutes of the movie I think she turned out to be a great mom. She was a lil nervous, but believe me, she was really great with my babies and so was the whole cast. I wish them all luck and hope they have an opportunity to make another movie.
