Great. Now I have to watch an awful movie *Sad face*

For some strange reason my 9yo ds is interested in Hitler. Dh about died when I told him I was going to ask the librarian for materials. He said, "You can't!" "It'll look so bad because we're white." The trip to the library was interesting...lol. 

But the books they had there were a little dull and mature for him. So I had a thought. The boy in the striped pajamas. I've been avoiding that movie since it came out. Everyone who's ever watched had told me they cried. So not my kind of movie! But given his interest, I think it could really work and give him an idea of the time period. 

Sigh...off to watch it :-( I'll update when it's over.

I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

It was awful! Just kidding, but I really, really, didn't like the ending.

So first reaction when you saod he was interested in Hitler. O.o
Lol. I'm assuming you don't mean in a role model way. Right?

If he is interested in the whole war and everything silent night might be a good movie to watch also.

*Spoiler alert*









At the end of the movie my 9yo ds said, "That sucks." "Bruno (the German boy) made the biggest mistake of his life." He's only 8 and now he's dead." I told ds, "That's very true." "But you know what?" "Shmuel (the Jewish boy) didn't make any mistake at all." He was murdered just because he's Jewish." "Nothing he could have done would have stopped those bad men from killing him and his family."
