A conversation between Little Bookworm, who is in fifth grade, and me:
LB: Can we watch Little Miss Sunshine [an R rated movie]?
LB: Why not?
Me: Because even though it’s a good movie, it’s not appropriate for you.
LB: But Michelle watched it. Why did her parents let her watch it?
Me: Because her parents have different standards.
LB: Yeah. Her Mom’s French.
And that was the end of the subject as far as Little Bookworm was concerned.
