Mike the Knight is downright mesmerizing
Yes, it’s Wordless Wednesday. No, I’m not going to be able to be wordless, but you already knew that. I’m still going to dole out Wednesday Words of Wuv, so I’m joining Cyndi at Pictimilitude and changing it to Wonderful Wednesday.
I snapped this picture on Monday, after Thomas called me in the room while I was washing dishes.
The crew had settled in to watch “Mike the Knight,” because it’s got dragons and magic and knightly quests, just like daddy likes. Plus, it’s got a queen who runs the kingdom while her husband is off on knightly quests, a daughter who is learning to do magic, and lots of singing, just like toddlers like. “Mike the Knight, he’s a brave young hero.” Gah, I have that in my head now.
My husband grew up with two brothers, and now he has two daughters. I’m sure there are days he wonders what in the world to do with them, but instead of getting caught up in gender stereotypes, he opts to share boyish passions, like remote control cars, Lincoln Logs and Legos, wrestling, and episodes of “The Last Airbender” (the cartoon, not the movie). He’s also been known to chase them through the house laughing uproariously and sit at the craft table and bead jewelry, but don’t tell.
Yes, the 2 year old is biting her nails. She also bites her toenails. Yeah, ick. The 1 year old is clinging fast to her plastic pan and spoon, which she loves to wave around and/or bang on for entertainment. These are my peeps.
How about yours? Tell me about your posse in the comments.
