Oh boy... This is getting fun

I braided Tia's hair today. I'm not that great of a braider and she's got pretty fine hair, but I managed and it looks so very cute. I'm trying to grow her bangs out which is a pain in the rear end so I'm looking for things I can do to keep it out of her eyes. I have a few short years where she is going to let me play with her hair and do it up all cute and I intend to enjoy it to the fullest!
I have a question for you readers out there...all 5 of you. I have heard that there is a website where you can order movies that have been edited so that there are no bad words or questionable scenes. Sloan is getting to the age where he wants to watch more grown up movies, but it's so hard to find any that aren't filled with words that we don't allow him to say. We rented Hook last night and I had to fast forward a couple of times and mute out one section. He loved the movie but I don't want to buy it unless I can find an edited version because I'm certainly not going to sit down and police it every time he wants to watch. I think he would like ET as well, but there is some questionable language in it if I recall. Anyway, if anyone knows where I can find these, I would be very appreciative. Happy Friday to you all!
*update: I did a little research online (very little) and have found a website called Clean Flicks where you can rent edited DVD's - very cool. Also found something called the Clear Play DVD system. It's a DVD player that has a filtering system built into it. They have thousands of DVD's to choose from on their site which from what I understand have the option to be either filtered or unfiltered. The DVD player itself costs 79.99, or something like that and I don't know how much the DVD's are, but that's kind of cool. So we'll see. I like the idea of being able to control what the kids see and are exposed to without necessarily relegating them to G-Rated movies alone, some of which are not that great either. So there you have it.

I am impressed that Tia sat still long enough for you to braid her hair, it is a challange to get Claire to hold still just to do pigtails. :)
I haven't heard of edited movies or this website that you are talking about sorry no help here!
