What a Parent of Toddlers Sees when He Watches 50 Shades of Grey:
As a parent of little kids who has a house, bills, etc etc, I find myself watching shows or movies in a different way than I used to. HGTV has two people looking to purchase a $600,000 fixer-upper and my first thought isn't the stain of hardwood to use but: "What are their mortgage payments gonna be like?!" I watch Curious George and wonder how the Man in the Yellow Hat can afford an apartment in the city and a country home while working, seemingly, part time at a museum (not to mention being so irresponsible with his primate charge).
And the we'll-live-happily-ever-after-romance-movies make me think: "Call me when you have toddlers Prince Charming."
The new 50 Shades of Grey trailer got me thinking of what they'd be talking about with a houseful of kids in place of sex toys.
