It was very blah, IMO.

I don't like Robert Pattinson at all, but I LOVE Emilie deRavin, so I was kind of disappointed. It was worth $1 from Redbox, but not something I think I'll ever watch again.

My 7 year old can do all those except the watch (she doesn't wear one).

We leave our bathroom door open all the time, too, unless we have company. I don't remember my mom shutting the bathroom door when I was growing up, either. She still doesn't.

If your daughter wouldn't go right up to the tank, I could certainly see walking in front of her . . . that's prime space, and why should it just remain open if no one is in it?
