Thank you all so much for your input on some good wholesome-type movies for me to see. I was unable to get to the library to return the offending movie today, so that means that I was forced to re-new it.
Giving the girls behind the library counter something to chat about when it was slow.
“Yes, she’s the homeschooling mother that checks out those kind of movies. And isn’t she the one with a young son who has rendered himself NAKED right here in this very library? Twice! Such a shame.”
I have hidden the forbidden DVD away UP HIGH, so that no inquisitive and tall child will seek it out. I just hope I don’t forget where I put it. Then I’ll have to actually go to the library and BUY the thing.
Or move. Which might be easier…
Anyhoo. I loved your suggestions so much that I thought I’d make a little movie must-see list. Some I have already seen, but many others I will be putting on hold at the library. That is, if I still have borrowing privileges.
Also, you gave me some great recommendations on some other sites to check out if a movie is suitable BEFORE subjecting yourself to images that will forever be burned into your retinas.
