omgosh!!!! okay so i am a huge lover of music and HUMOR. who doesn’t like humor? i know, but we are not talking about our third grade english teacher. so here is a little back story to my funny favorite movie of the month, ready?
my oldest child was at a big sleep over with her girlfriends last weekend. she is a tween and as much as I would like her to be a toddler, unfortunately she is most definitely not. anyway, it’s around 9ish Saturday night and my sweet rule abiding child video calls me to ask if she can can watch this new blu ray movie her friend got for her bday. what do i do you ask? i look over at my hibby and he is already looking it up on google. hahaha. he looks over and says HECK NO! i of course bust out laughing. i can see myself in the bottom corner picture box and i’m totally trying to keep my cool and look cute while i break my sweet child’s heart and popularity. (i was still praising her in my head and aloud for calling to see if it was okay)
i go on to tell her as my hibby’s overpowering voice echoes in the background, that there is sexual referencing, language and drug referencing. i can hear her friends in the background going, “nuh, uh…no that’s another movie called picture perfect”. either way i doomed the rest of her girl power night with a big fat NO. somehow the connection on the video got disconnected….yes i think she politely ended the call. ANNNND, so then i decided to look it up on youtube. i saw the trailer, and it was actually pretty funny looking. seeing how my child is a TAD naive and totally into music and singing…..i figured she would come home with questions on what words meant. I DECIDED TO LET HER WATCH IT. there was only verbal mentioning of inappropriate wordage and there was no sexual content scenes. i called her on her friends phone and told her that i was TOTALLY KIDDING and then the connection was lost. needless to say, my sweet tween was overly exciting. her awesomely cool mother did in fact not ruin the night and the movie rocked.
in turn….I RENTED THE MOVIE FROM REDBOX so i could see for myself why my child came home asking what a “slut, boner, and herpes was”. that’s right….aaahhahaha. all i could do was laugh to myself because i am the one that provided and worked hard to have an open relationship with my children. and when they overhear or read a word that they do not know, they come ask me and i tell them. this was the first time i could not answer right away. how do you tell your tween who already has had the short no detail version of the birds and bees, what a boner is. i mean come on. i actually fell to the floor in a laughing fit because i had no idea how to tell her without terrifying her into her late twenties.
ramble. ramble. ramble. my apologies. i just want to say that if you want a good laugh and a breather one night, please go rent the movie Pitch Perfect. hilarious. fat amy is awesome!
