I have to admit, one of my favorite movies of all time is “Bull Durham.” My husband loves it, too. And we’re all big baseball fans in our family. We even go to minor-league and independent-league games now and then.
I found myself thinking the other day, “Boy, I can’t wait ’till Randy and I can watch “Bull Durham” with Matthew.” Well, Matt is 13, and baseball fun aside, I’m just not ready for him to watch Susan Sarandon’s character, Annie Savoy, tie Tim Robbins‘ character, Ebby Calvin ‘Nuke’ LaLoosh (gotta love that name), to the bedposts.
Yes, we feel a bit alone in the wilderness on this one, because many of Matt’s 8th-grade friends are allowed to watch R-rated movies. Some of them have been watching them for years. But as I tell Matt, some parents just don’t care what their kids are exposed to “your dad and I have to do what’s right for our family.”
What are some of your favorite movies that you can’t wait to share with your kid when he’s a little older?
