I just got back from the Walmart with boy2001. He had a great time, staying up late, looking around, picked out ice cream for the week AND got another Pirates of the Caribbean playset!
I’m exhausted! he wanted to look at each and every Pirates of the Caribbean item… the only thing that almost caught his attention was the lego Sponge Bob sets which I would have preferred.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not the biggest Sponge Bob absorber, but it does seem to a little more lasting value compared to this pirates thing he’s got going. I’m so tired hearing about pirates… it started about 3 years ago with the Captain Hook costume I got him at the Disney Store.
Every since then he’s been collecting swords (which he pronounces incorrectly) of all different shapes and sizes. If you’re wondering, it does bother me, we keep away from guns and I just didn’t see the sword thing until it was deeply entrenched in his psyche. Luckily he’s usually defending his sisters from a pesky tree, log, fence post etc…
Speaking of defending, we watched Star Trek episode “The Cage” yesterday. He is becoming quite the little trekkie, if we could get trek toys, I bet he’d want them instead of pirates! He was entranced with episodes beauty, Vina.
