The list of children’s entertainment is pretty short at the Pierce house. Last night the kids “got” to watch The 400 Blows. One of Robert’s favorites. The movie chronicles the boyhood of Doniel, who, after repeated mistreatment (i.e., “blows”) by his parents, teachers, and society, ends up quasi-delinquent. It’s a masterpiece, of course.
Anyway, thing is, when you see the movie before having kids yourself, the parents are basically monsters. When you see it after having kids yourself, the parents appear to be, uhh, parents.
