Josh: “mommy…whose picture is on that money?”
me: “George Washington is on the $1 bill”
Josh: “Who’s he?”
me: “he was the first president of the United States, hon” (ali kicks herself. must. move. back. to. the. states.)
Emily: “huh…i always thought George Clooney was on the dollar bill…”
i swear to god. i about died. how does my 7-year-old even know who George Clooney is? and who knew there was a company that actually made George Clooney money?? i am so buying some for her.
she has to have gotten that from a tv show, right? right?
speaking of what my daughter is watching. we decided to watch a movie together, and since i didn’t want to watch She’s the Man for the 400th time, we checked the family section on TMN on-demand (think: poor man’s HBO), and she picked Georgia Rule. I thought, i can deal with this. Sure, Lindsay Lohan is in it, but so is Felicity Huffman. and Jane Fonda. and Dermot Mulroney (yum!).
needless to say, about 15 minutes in we needed to shut it off…because during this innocent-looking scene…
Lindsay removes her thong and spreads wide eagle for her brand-new-never-touched-a-girl-mormon friend. WHAT THE FUCK? This movie was in the FAMILY section. as in, movies for the family to watch together??! other movies included Charlotte’s Web and The Last Mimzy.
i think we’ll go back to the Parent Trap and Freaky Friday…Lindsay Lohan movies where she doesn’t blow young innocent boys in boats. because she’s seven. she might know who George Clooney is…but i sure as hell don’t want her to know what Lindsay Lohan could be doing to him
