One week from today, my sweet little baby boy turns TEN. He has decided this year NOT to have a party at the skating rink, or bowling alley, or whatever. He opted, instead, to go see the movie Are We There Yet? with his two best friends from school (both girls!) and our neighbor.
I spoke to one of the girls mom last night and she politely informed me she did not want her daughter seeing that movie, which is rated PG. We changed it to Racing Stripes. Now – I am VERY lenient and VERY liberal when it comes to what movies I let my child watch, so I am a bad judge. But – if it’s rated PG, don’t you feel pretty safe to let a nine-year-old watch it?
Anyway – he’s a bit bummed and kept saying “It’s PG! Look!” and giving me proof, and he had a hard time understanding that this girl’s mom didnt care. So – I promised him to take him BACK to the theater AFTER we take the girls home to see the late showing of it, if there is one.
*sigh* Parenting is TOUGH.
