It doesn’t mean that every song has to be some super-sappy song for my kids, but it makes you hope that you are doing the kind of music that they’re not embarrassed by. There's two types of parents; ones who don't want to embarrass their children, and ones that love to embarrass their kids."

My ex-wife and I have joint custody of our six year old twin daughters. I thought I was having a nightmare yesterday when I woke up, looked at my phone, and saw my ex-wife and daughters in their Halloween costumes. All three are going as Playboy Bunnies. They were wearing black and white bunny outfits with white cufflinks, black bow ties and bunny ears. I called my ex because I thought she was kidding. She was not and says there's nothing wrong with our daughters dressing up as Playboy Bunnies for Halloween. Nothing except for the fact that it is going to draw unwanted attention, perverts and nothing, but unwanted comments. My wife says I'm stiff and that there is nothing wrong with being a Playboy Bunny for the night. She says they love the idea. What do you think about this? Is it wrong or not?
