I am about to backpedal on something I said awhile ago, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I had said that I don’t let Meg watch Hannah Montana on tv, even though every.single.girl in her class watches. She listens to the Hannah Montana soundtrack, which we all like (including Drew, who sings right along!) and she has Miley Cyrus’ new CD and loves it. I’ve been hesitant to let her watch the show, quite frankly, because I am not ready for her to grow up. Of course I tell her to grow up all the time, but when it boils down to it, I know she’s only 8 and the last thing she should be thinking about is boys and dating. Ugh.
So….on April 10th there is a new Hannah Montana movie coming out. And I want to take her. Just the two of us. I saw previews last night and it looks good. I’ve never taken her to the movies before. In fact, she’s only ever been to two or three movies in the theater before, and never with me or Doug. She’s never been a fan of loud music or noise so the movies was not a place I wanted to spend my money for her to want to go home. I digress. I really want to take her to this movie. Does that make me a hypocrite? I feel like one. I let her wear Hannah socks, jammies, underwear (yes, really, they have Hannah underwear), she sleeps on Hannah sheets and has a Hannah calendar. I’m starting to think that having her live in my overprotective bubble isn’t good for her and I should just GIVE a little more.
What do you think? Does it make me a hypocrite to take her to the movie?
