Simpler times

I think perhaps Eamonn has played entirely too many rounds of his older brother’s Ultra Man: Monster Crisis game…

Gathering apple cores

This afternoon, while playing a perfectly gentle computer game which is based on the movie Ratatouille and revolves around the collection of apple cores, Eamonn turns to me and says, “I can’t get that apple. I think I’ll have to use the spoon as a weapon and kill those chicks.” Gleeful emphasis on the latter part of the sentence.

EEK

Um, sweetheart, there’s no killing in Ratatouille. How about we turn off the computer, go back 4 years, and play sweetly in a pile of wood chips? That was a lot easier for me to watch.

  1. […] Aidan came home from school and informed me that there is, indeed, chick-clobbering in the game, although he’s pretty sure you’re not actually killing them. […]

  2. He is adorable in the wood chips!!! Do you know anything about the Mr. Bean movie? Apparently my DD watched it with DH when I wasn’t around and now she is saying weird sayings that I don’t get.

    1. Nope, I never saw the Mr. Bean movie. Guess you’ll just have to watch it now 😉

  3. Hmmm this is freaky but you have chicks in your color challenge too 🙂

    E. is so cute in the wood chips!

  4. If only we could return to those innocent days . . . Just wait until they start playing grown-up video games and loving it. Your heart will break! He’s such a cutie, btw!

    1. Yeah, I’m sure there are many of those heartbreaking moments ahead. Finishing preschool and getting on the bus to kindergarten are looming this year.

  5. My son is 11! I hate to tell you, but this is only the beginning! It’s like he went from Winnie the Pooh to Batman over night. It happens around age 5 or 6. Cute pics, btw!

    1. Yeah, I remember with my older son (who’s now about to turn 8). His 5th birthday brought all of these creepy dinosaur, transformer, monster, robot kind of gifts and I wondered what the heck happened to plush toys and board books?! I guess the little guy is right on track, being a few months away from 5 years old, and all. I’m not ready!
