What we have already

For people who don't have kids, we have a surprising amount of kid-friendly stuff. When A was visiting and we surprised her with babysitting, we were sorting through our DVDs to pull out the kid-friendly ones, and she said 'Wow, you actually have a lot. And then you have a lot of stuff that's REALLY inappropriate. No middle ground.' It's totally true. Amongst Kanye West and Liz Phair CDs and the movies Trainspotting and Fight Club, we have the following:
