A friendly reminder from Oscar

This past week I was driving with my manfriend’s daughter (who is 12) and we were listening to Madonna’s Hard Candy. I told her Madonna was turning 50 (happy birthday this Saturday). She picked up the CD and looked at the photo and said with surprise in her voice “she’s 50”. I told her don’t forget, there is a lot of touch up done; they take wrinkles out, they smooth the skin, they can take a few inches off your thighs if needed, etc. I also told her they do this for 20 year olds too and reassured her many models do not look that way in real life.

There are certain lessons we cannot forget to explain to our kids and this is one of them. Although we may think they know these things we have to make sure they know these things. Never assume because…


Calling all Gamers

I found out my son was one of those people who pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto IV and picked it up at MIDNIGHT! I’m not a gamer but I can relate to the excitement…I love games but the old fashion ones like Clue, Yahtzee but I’m hip with WII!

They say the makers of this game exceed with the realism (so I’m assuming as the cars race you see gas stations in the background with signs at $4.79 a gallon).

  Of course there is a lot of controversy about the sex and violence so if you need to know more before purchasing check out my sons take on this game in the comments section (he is 22). It will enlighten you!

P.S – Sorry RT, GTA IV’s opening week sales will definitely beat Hard Candy
