Erin, I totally agree with everything you just said! I like the Yiruma song better for the "lullaby" and I loved the Carter Burwell song too, but as you said, I much prefer it as a piano solo than with a complete orchestra.

No, I bet a lot of them won't even recognize it...they might think it is familiar. They are both beautiful & romantic songs.

I hope it's not OTT, I used the Yiruma song for my wedding picture slideshow, hehe wink.gif Also, if you loved River Flows in You then you'll love Kiss the Rain by Yiruma as well....another consideration possibly?

Here it is on youtube:

I have a confession to make...I've been SERIOUSLY obsessed with Twilight today. I watched the movie TWICE this morning...and then read the manuscript online (again). What is wrong with me?!?!?!? I can't stop...I may need an intervention!

I have a question for you ladies...what books out of the 4 would you say are inappropriate for children?

 

I teach at an elementary school and I have noticed a few kids at the school in 3rd - 6th grade (9 - 12 year olds) reading them. I know the first book is pretty safe, but when does the sexual stuff happen? Is it in the 3rd or 4th book? (I read them all in such a short time that they all flow together now!) The kids are bringing the books from home and I'd like to advise parents who probably just saw the movie and think these books are fine for kids. I personally don't think kids that young should even be reading any of them. Even without the sex, there is a lot of kissing and scary parts. Also the love story borders on the lines of obsession and I don't think that is such a good influence for young children.

 

What do you guys think?

They start talking about it in the 3rd book but they don't actually have sex till the 4th I believe. And then there are no "details" about it, just that it happened... I'm not a good judge on this as my kids see a ton of stuff on TV that they probably shouldn't! lol. But I was right there with you on being concerned about my 13 year old reading it until I read it and realized that it wasn't that bad for her but maybe younger, I don't know.

The sex is a non-issue to me; they are married and over the legal age of consent. If, by the time a kid is CAPABLE of getting through the fourth book, by all means...they should know that married people have sex. lol

 

The problems I see for young readers are mostly about an inability to seperate reality from fiction. But overall, I honestly think that the stuff that could truly have a negative impact on a young reader (ie, control in a relationship and the like) is of such a nature that it flies right over the heads of anyone too young to really get it. So it doesn't really matter.

 

If you haven't seen this blog..PLEASE check it out, and maybe your FI/H's would get a laugh out of it too. It's Twilight Widowers. I HAVE NOT LAUGHED SO HARD IN AGES, I promise you! This guy is a freakin genious!

 

For the guys, some warning signs that they may be being groomed to look like Edward Cullen.

 

I remembered an odd conversation we had a while ago over the dinner table:

 

"Stare at me."

"What?"

"Stare at me like you want to eat me."

I frowned. She waited patiently.

"No. That just looks constipated."

 

It's easy to tell if you're being groomed to look like Pretty McSparkle. Pay close attention to your wife's behaviour and you'll soon picked up the pattern:

 

1. Random gifts of hair gel ("Try putting your hair up for a change, honey.")

 

2. Signing you up for piano lessons ("You said you wanted a new hobby.")

 

3. An unusual interest in your skin care routine ("The UV index is too high. here, wear this SPF 50 sunblock. And a hat. And cover your arms up.")

 

4. Your wardrobe has taken a decidedly… vintage look lately (“It's what all the guys are wearing now, trust me.â€)

 

 

Honey? Why can't I wear shorts to the beach?

 

 

5. You are certain she keeps calling you by a different name (“No, you misheard me… I said “I love you, onward!â€)

 

6. She makes you stand out in the cold for a half-hour before letting you come to bed (“Itâ€ll tighten your poresâ€)

 

It may be paranoia on our part, I admit. But just remember, when she pages you at work and you hear “phone call for Mr. Cullen,†odds are it isnâ€t just a slip on her part…

 

And "motivational posters"..I swear, this shit has tears rolling down my face.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
