Salutations, fellow bronies. It is I, the Marvelous Matthew Missouri!
For a bit of context, I used to be a regular poster during the height of the fandom, around seasons 1-5, and then started to fall away shortly after. During that time, I was most active on Ponychan.net, but missed Moony, and so am now here.
Anyways! Life happened, and I ended up having two kids. Just recently, for Christmas, my daughter inherited my old pony toys - The expensive vinyl-figures and some older figurine packs that were sold at Toys-R-Us.
It was a magical night, because it reminded me of when I was a new brony first learning that MLP was intended to be a show that could be enjoyed by kids and their parents. Well, now that intention has been fulfilled on me end. As I make this post, my daughter is watching MLP, S01E03, and I have every intention of joining her after I make this post.
In hindsight, though I no longer call myself a brony, I still get warm and fuzzy feelings whenever I watch the show. Though he drifting fog of time has lifted away, the show is still legitimately good.

I remember when my daughter was 1 and I set Griffon the Brush off up for her. Or my son at the same age enjoying the Babs Seed song.
Now my daughter's 11 and I can sit with her to watch Steven Universe.

Wow, I remember you from way back when. I guess I'm not the only one who decided to check back on this old place around this time, huh?
Congratulations on becoming a parent. I'm glad to see that you're enjoying being able to spend some quality time together with your daughter through the show. I'm sure it'll be a treasured memory for later.

Your 1-year old son has awful taste and needs the internet to tell him what the GOOD episodes are!

The internet agrees that Griffon the Brush off isawesome
I'm still a good meme. >>1070390
For you and the old friends here, I think I will. It's an effort worth making.>>1070392
Aside from getting married, having children, working at Disney World, attending college, and releasing a TTRPG, it's been swell. I've been on leave-of-absence for the last days since my sister (who lives in the house) got the 'rona.>>1070612
Some people and places will forever remain in my heart.>>1070477
Sadly, she's not quite old enough to really get
the episodes. Perhaps when she's five?>>1070295
Salutations, new guy. I'm old guy.

except it's better cause i like the people here!>hugs and kajis <3
My clone are very impressive and I'm very proud of them. >>1071006
Oh absolutely. My kids can be insane sometimes - especially my eldest. She's still learning the difference between yes and no, or that you can't just scream at the top of your lungs every time it's time for bed. Like, come on kid - why fight it? By now you should realize that this is a losing fight and that no matter what by 830 you'll be in bed.
I really wish they'd release some over-the-counter children's anesthesia. Just, you know, go to sleep right now.

Hi Moony, nice to see you>>1071034
Hiya! I like your name, hah.
I am doing okay. Some days are harder than others but you know. Life must go on.>>1071051
Mine is five and we are at the stage where we talk about video games all day, trying to defy my every movement and makes me question where I went wrong sometimes haha. He is okay with bed time but he is scared of the dark... give him a night light to help>>1071066
Yeah, all the time. It is a hard line between being a parent and a friend to them. I am the higher authority but I want them to be comfortable to trust me and talk to me. I try my best

you seem to be doing very well!! are you having a restful new year? i hope 2020 was not too stressful!
i do hope your family is doing well too!
will you be staying around, it is so nice to have you around again, old friend.
All the time. Every single thing I do I have to think twice about. "Will this turn them into narcissists?" "Will this inspire them towards generosity?" "Will this turn them into serial killers?" "Will this make them love me more?" The list goes on...>>1071072
We have a string of light-up flamingos over her bed as a night-light. A florida-y thing to do.

I will stay as long as I am wanted. Sometimes I can get mean and that might get me banned, hah.
2020 was a crap show, especially with the limit of doing many things with my children.>>1071108

I think theres a criminal code section about infecting your child with pony virus.
Kids from the 80s are still segregated in G1 pony areas and at the very least you should wait until G5 to avoid needing to update your child with that long-delayed code release. G4 is still buggy af and will crash your reality if you dont abort in time.
But, PONY! Hi welcome! Run while you can...
