Thats what I told Nick I wanted to be, 'One of those psycho moms!'
Growing up I had a friend who wasnt allowed to watch care bears, or things like that...
As they represented the fruit of the spirit, and might confused a young child in the Christian home.
I thought it was funny. At the time, and up until a few weeks ago.
Though I dont plan to go as far as cutting care bears out of our lives, Im planning on taking A LOT of stuff out.
You see Anberlyn has been saying 'stupid' a lot. I try to explain its not a good word, and she should not say it. Then yesterday we were sitting and watching Toy Story with her, Buzz and Woody were fighting and Woody called Buzz a moron and stupid idiot... Hmmmm Anberlyn is a sponge, she absorbs everything, I think Toy Story is a super cute and fun movie, BUT I think its gonna be put on hold, for a couple years. When she can understand more. When she can make wiser decisions to what she is allowed to say. You may think thats a lot to put on a child, but why put a limit on her?
OR you may be thinking that Im a crazy lady, stupid isnt a bad word, its really not that big of a deal. She could be saying words that are a lot worse! VERY true.
You see, I want to keep my daughters innocent as LONG AS POSSIBLE! I want to shelter them! I want them the be kids! I want their world to be lolli pops and gum drops! and STUPID does not exist in that world!
I also DO NOT want them to be naive, and they wont be, but there is a time and a place for that. An almost 4 year old, is not that time or place!
Having 3 beautiful little girls is a scary little world for me. I am doing my best!
SO here I go, going through their DVDs and hiding the ones I dont think they should watch just yet, if that makes them uncool with their (or my) friends.... Thats ok with me!!
Here is a GREAT site to help you decide, its movie reviews, by Christians, Plugged In. There is also and app! (they have a section for music, video games and TV as well)
