Babysitting is Hard, aka Who Knew the Hallmark Channel Made Movies That Aren't Family Friendly?

I'm babysitting my little sister today. She's 4, and I'm 25, and I don't have any children of my own, so sometimes I goof up with her unintentionally. This afternoon I was telling her about this mini series with magic, called The 10th Kingdom. It's really fun, and I knew it was made by Hallmark so I thought it would be ok for her to watch. Well...turns out it's not. I put it on, and then twenty minutes in I thought to check the parental advisory for it online. Yup, turns out there is swearing, and some people get stabbed. So naturally I turned it off.

And then all hell broke loose. She really wanted to keep watching it. I calmed her down and got her to color with me instead, but I feel like the world's biggest jerk, because the situation was entirely my fault. What are the odds she'll forget about it, and won't want to watch the movie at a later date?

It's a really cute show, I swear!
