Real Genius

It probably wasn’t a genius on my part to let my young crew watch this movie, but they enjoyed it all the same. It did have quite a few parts that made me cringe and hope they didn’t really pick up on what was going on. I know I didn’t realize all THAT was in this movie when I was their age.

I like the reviews over on Common Sense Media. I probably should have checked there first instead of scrolling Netflix for something that didn’t sound boring.

The kids are 12, 10, and 9. I know. I know. A little young. Common Sense Media suggests 13. They handled it just fine though. The boys loved the explosions, fire, the hole through everything on campus, and, of course, the popcorn.  They also loved the potty humor. Of course, they did! All 3 of them did, actually. I’m surrounded by potty humor nearly every day movie or no movie.

As for me, I still really enjoy Real Genius. It cracks me up even more now looking at all that 80’s!

15 minute yoga book

15 Minute Yoga

It only took me about 45 minutes with figuring things out and all the kid interruptions. I did finish!

Meanwhile, my son injured himself falling off the kitchen counters. He forgot we have a step stool. Sigh…

Yoga is dangerous on more than one level, apparently.

Joking aside, I really like the approachable nature of this book, and although the moves aren’t simple for this total yoga novice, it was easy enough to follow and I feel like it is in the realm of accomplishable.

The book I have didn’t come with a DVD, but here’s the link should you want to get this yourself: https://www.dk.com/us/book/9780756629267-15-minute-gentle-yoga*
