The BabySitters Club Gets A Modern Adaption

The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Remember The Baby-Sitters Club? Of course, you do! And now, once and for all, the 1986 book series is getting a modern television adaptation that has been very long-awaited. Netflix recently released the trailer for the new series, offering an exciting teaser as to what’s to come! This time around, the original story of the book is going to be portrayed from a more modern-day perspective, because we all, of course, have to keep up with the times, even if we don’t really want to. 


And while we often hear rumors about shows coming out or see trailers, they often, unfortunately, don’t come with a promised, set date. Fear not though, The Baby-Sitters Club wouldn’t let you sit around just waiting and wishing, and have already set a date! The first episode is expected to be released on July 3rd, and the entire season is going to have ten episodes. To say we’re looking forward would be an understatement, especially after seeing the trailer, showing us who’s going to be playing our favorite characters.

Kristy Thomas will be played by Sophie Grace, Claudia Kishi by Momona Tamada, and Mary Anne Spier will be played by Malia Baker. As for the rest? Well, we will let you watch the trailer yourself! We wouldn’t want to ruin all the fun in one shot. And thankfully, these Babysitters appear to be just as unique and spicy as we remember them from the books, but with a modern-day twist, they are going to show also more diverse and inspiring women to more accurately depict today’s reality on many levels.  And while we again, don’t want to ruin the fun and excitement for you, it’s safe to say that the series will have no shortage of epic nostalgia with some additional actors that will surely take you back in time.
