So, as a white mama of black and biracial teens, I try to expose my kids to movies about their heritage to supplement the books we read. Today I agreed to watch the movie of their choice if they would watch The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman - a pretty good movie that I’d seen once before years ago and really enjoyed.
After much moaning and groaning, they finally settled into the movie and, overall, I would say they came away from it a little richer. They held up their end of the bargain, so now it was my turn.
Guess what movie they chose for me to watch?
The Date Movie! :eek: :eek: :eek: I don’t know if they laughed harder at the movie or at my shocked/slack jawed/hilarious expression! I have to admit that SOME of the movie was funny, even to an old fogie like me, and if nothing else, it was bonding time I think
So, what deals have you made with your kids lately?
