Video Stores: So I've recently come to realize that video stores are not family friendly. My kids are 7, 5, & almost 1, I have no idea why it took me so long to figure this out, I guess I'm a slow learner. This revelation hit me as our family innocently walked the new release isle looking for some good family movies to rent. I turned around and saw my son staring at a video cover of a very mean looking Santa Claus wielding a bloody knife. I quickly grabbed him with my hands over his eyes and pulled him away while hollering for Amelle to come with us. I was rushing frantically, as if THE WORLD was about to molest my children. I looked around and saw things that were never apparent to me before - DVD covers with women kissing other women, scary murderer types with chainsaws and other murder-weapons, mostly-naked women seductively posed, foul named movies, ghetto gangsters embracing dollar bills.. ....all the things that I am trying to sheild my children from in one place. I was mortified. It's amazing, the things about our society that I am trying to protect my children from are the very things that are being shamelessly promoted. Jesus come quickly!
Aunt isn't a three letter word: I can't understand why people call aunts "ants". An aunt is one thing (a female family member) and an ant is something entirely different (a small, hardworking insect). Where is the confusion? Sound it out!
Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful that we cut Amelle's hair. Life is good! I stumbled across this picture of Amelle "pre-haircut" - she had been walking around with one of Amaya's pacifiers in her hair and she didn't even know it. I guess when you accidently and unknowingly carry objects around in your hair, it's time to get a trim!
