Jill normally goes to her dad's right after school gets out and stays through most of the summer. This year, she chose to only go for a few weeks, so she isn't going until sometime in July. So her dad sent her birthday present to her. It arrived yesterday. It was a large box. She dug right in, pulling out a karaoke machine that her ipod plugs into. And? A movie. My Girl. A classic from when we were younger. Except that it came out when we were in about fifth grade (I think). Not first grade. I told Jill I didn't think the movie was appropriate for her to watch. She grumped. Then. Little smarty that she is, plays the dad card. "Well, dad thinks it is okay, or he wouldn't have given it to me." Yeah. Well, your dad is obviously an idiot. No offense, Kris, but seriously?
Half-way through the movie and the topics that have been brought up so far are death, periods, smoking joints, womanizing, and AIDS. Although the movie didn't directly bring up AIDS. I just had to strongly warn her against the whole "blood brothers" thing.
I've already explained the death thing, so all we have left is the momma in jail thing after I kill her father.
****Disclaimer: I am not threatening to kill her father for real. We get along just fine.******
