I don't think children belong in PG-13 movies or at movies after a certain time of night. And, when I say "children", I mean any kid under 13.
Jeune has a point that not all movies seem to fit their rating, but why take the chance? We've put on DVDs of PG movies for our kids when they were younger and been a little uncomfortable with the themes. Of course, PG does mean "parental guidance."
But, to be quite frank...movies are expensive these days and it is a special event for my husband and I to go spend the money. We want to enjoy it. And, it is hard to enjoy a movie when someone's child is screaming through the whole thing.
Go see the movie, determine if it is appropriate for your kids and then rent it for them on DVD later if you feel they can handle it. That way, they can see the movie, wiggle around, make noise, AND tell you if it makes them feel scared or uncomfortable and you can turn it OFF at your leisure.
I think that my personality is essentially the same as it always has been. BUT, I have definitely changed when it comes to how I see the world.
I was quiet and shy in high school. I never stepped out of my comfort zone. When I got to college I think I finally gained the self confidence I needed to take some chances and put myself out there. I made lots of friends and got involved in everything I could.
I feel like most of my friends did change and grow as well after high school, but I also guess there are probably a few who didn't. Some people seem to have a hard time letting go of those years, maybe because nothing after that seemed to compare? Don't know.
I haven't been back to a high school reunion, so I guess I'll remain curious about it.
Wow, that lady was pretty darn entitled! Unfortunately, I see this type of behavior in many places these days, not just the doctor's office.
What am I entitled to from my doctor? Bottom line -- the best care he or she can possibly give me. I am entitled to his or her undivided attention while the visit is going on. I am entitled to having him or her treat me with respect.
What are they entitled to from me? That I treat them with respect in return. That I come prepared for my visit. That I PAY my bill.
Being a doctor is a job. Health care is a business, for the most part. Unless you know your physician runs a charity, then you should expect to pay for the care you receive.
If you feel like your physician is not ethical or competent, you can turn him or her to your state's medical board.
When my kids were small, my pediatrician was a delightful man who was great with kids and parents alike. He knew that my husband and I didn't make much money, so anytime I went in for a visit he sent me home with formula samples, medication samples, diapers, etc. Did I expect it? No. Did I appreciate it? Yes. Did I refer ALL my girlfriends to his practice when they got pregnant? You betcha!
There are a couple of commercials on TV right now that feature facial hair. One of the best is where the two guys with handlebar mustaches duke it out in an old-fashioned boxing match! Don't even know what they are trying to sell.
Now to answer the question...not a fan.
My husband loves to occasionally grow a beard, but I can't stand it. I want to see his FACE. And, it's scratchy when I kiss him. Yuck.
I won't even mention that I feel like it's not clean. I am sure it's just my OCD tendency coming through. I bet Dr. Rod Moser might have to chime in and correct me for that comment!
Women make women fat by eating too much or too much of the wrong things. HOWEVER, it is much easier to eat the wrong things when you're living with a man.
My husband has always had a faster metabolism than me. So, if I try to eat like he eats, I gain weight. And I have. Lots of it.
Do I have to put the chicken wings in my mouth? No, I do not. But I do. He's eating it, and it is tempting.
I have found over the years that if I cook more at home this is less of a problem. I make sure he has what he likes, and I have something that is better for ME to eat. It also helps him out, because he is not going to choose to eat a veggie if he has his own way.
