You Might Have a Big Brother if…#3


While this little princess was playing with her Batman/Penguin Submarine, she was overheard shouting this:

Hey, Riddlar, you in theya? Hey Riddlar!

Ah…the things she has learned from her big brother.

The other awesome thing she picked up on was because of a recent purchase. We just bought a Wii. Since the P was born 6 years ago, we have not had video games in the house, but recently, BabyDaddy got to play on a Wii with the P at Mimi’s house. The Wii, as everyone else in the universe knows, is actually really interactive and fun for families. It’s a far, far cry from the sitting by yourself in the dark first person shooters that we grew up with. (I know this sounds just like the Newsradio when Bill discovers rap music 2 decades too late…or the summer when I discovered that Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a good writer (2010). (Yeah. And I studied Spanish Literature in college. I’m still not sure how I missed him.) I know that literally everyone else knows the Wii is fun, but seriously, we didn’t want one until about three weeks ago.)

So, anyway, we got a Wii, and the P loves to play this Sonic game. He was playing and finally got to Level 3. The P says, “Yes! I’m on Level 3!”

And the Princess says, “Boss level?”

I was like, “Time to turn off the Wii.”

So we read books the rest of the day. But not Marquez. We prefer Scieszka and Shannon for the kids.

And, yes, in the picture above, she is wearing Target froggie footie pajamas and a BabyGap sweater over it.  That’s how she rolls.  It’s really hard to get her out of her “jamas.”  And, as you know I’m not one to argue over fashion.
