Lost Innocence

Have you ever seen the movie Nemo? It's a cute Disney movie about a fish who gets separated from his dad and their journey to find each other.

However, in the first scene of the movie, Nemo's mother and all her baby eggs (except for Nemo's egg) get eaten by this eel thing. It's so violent! So I decided I NEVER EVER wanted The Boy to watch that scene. Whenever he watched that movie, we skipped the first scene and just started the movie on Nemo's first day of school.

So they showed the movie at school the other day. And started it from the beginning.

The Boy came home and said something about Nemo's mother and I swear I thought my head might snap right off my neck as I whipped my head around and incredulously exclaimed, "WHAT?!?" How could they show this tragedy to my BABY?!? He was obviously going to be scarred for life now.

He is fine. Duh. I'm still a little traumatized.

I know exactly what you mean. I feel the same way about that scene.

And WTF is up with schools these days?!

I remember how much Rob and I loved the movie Jerry Maquire, and since it was kind of a sports flick, we thought the boys would like it, but there was a really graphic sex scene at the beginning. So we taped the movie off HBO when it came on (onto VHS... way old school right?, but it was a long time ago)and during the sex scene we switched over to some Basketball game on ESPN. So, to this day, we have a censored VHS version of Jerry Maguire. You did the right thing, school sucks.
