    Has anyone seen "Epic" yet? I am wondering if it is too scary for a 4 or 5 year old.

    I almost took the kids to Epic yesterday, but then didn't. Sorry, I don't know! The reviews say it's not great but it's a good way to kill a hot afternoon.

    I can't believe the way my Sunday turned out, at the last minute Juliet decided to go to church with Dave & Nathaniel so I actually can go to yoga, color my hair, and have the whole morning to myself. Amazing and unheard of. I'm just sitting here quietly drinking coffee and looking for good recipes to bake on the web....I never knew what a relaxing Sunday was until right now.

    I love these two sites for movie reviews for kids:

    Common Sense Media advises age 6
    Epic - Movie Review

    Movie Mom says 4th-6th graders, but her review gives a lot more information that might be used to help "prep" a younger child.
    Epic - Movie Mom

    I'm the kind of person who is more likely to take my kid to see something "iffy" in the theater when there's no way I'd plunk her down in front of the same movie at home on a DVD. In a theater, I'm right there holding her hand, and we can't pause the movie which I've found often makes intense-but-short moments into long drawn-out ordeals, kwim? One of my fondest memories of childhood was being scared and saddened at the beginning of Bambi and climbing into my dad's lap and he hugged me & said everything was going to be OK, and by the end I'd forgotten why I was in his lap!

    Summer hasn't even officially begun but the summertime bedtime battles have begun. I don't have the energy to explain everything that happened this evening, but the kids both finally fell asleep on the sofa in the front room around 9:30 pm and I am NOT going to try to move them to their beds.

    Thanks. I couldn't find a good parents review as it isnt on imdb yet.

    We tend to watch the first couple times with her and then she can watch the dvd. Usually if it is a little scary she gets used to it quick. She had a bit of trouble with Brave the first couple times, but now loves it. She also loves The nightmare before christmas though. She takes some chances with movies that are a bit scary.

    DH took the kids to Epic today. They seem to have liked it, though DD did watch part of it from Daddy's lap. I had to stay home with the baby, so thats about all I know about it.

    Other than taking some time today to watch DD's soccer game and take the kids to the movies, DH has been working ALL weekend. And I mean he has barely been home to sleep for a few hours at a time. This would normally really annoy me, but they caught a really horrible person, who was doing really horrible things in our town, and I am really proud of him and the work he does. I am so lucky to be married to a person who truly strives to make the world a better place to be in. It broke my heart this morning though when DD asked him to 'promise' that he would stay for her whole soccer game. She had 3 games this weekend, and he was supposed to go to the ones on Saturday and then had to work. It is so hard for them when he is working these kind of hours, I was so happy when he took the time to do something special with them today, especially since he probably should have been sleeping.

    So the great and life-saving yoga studio I go to bought the space next door, and they're adding more classes....Melissa, this made me think of you & your gym...and on the weekends they are going to offer kid-based activities (yoga, crafts, supervised hanging out) in the 2nd space so that those of us who can't go to more classes because of kids can just bring them and they'll be happy! Both my kids are excited because they already love it there, but I am MORE excited.

    That sounds awesome Laurie!
    Stacey~sorry your kids had bad bedtimes.
    Bonita enjoy your visit!

    I went to the concert last night and had such a great time. Spent the day in Boston having drinks with my friend and then just singing my heart out. It was an awesome day!
