Rockstarism #243 – Out with the old games, in with the new


Rockstar and the baby were on the bed as usual... And then I noticed how he'd positioned his Star Wars Lego.........!

Rockstar (playing with Ninjago figures, Star Wars pieces and big rubber squid): Ok! We need weapons. Who brought the laser gun? Oh, he did. Who has the golden nunchaku? That's Blue Ninja's. Who brought the giant squid? <pause> No one, it's been living here a really long time. He's just curious and wants to see what we're doing.

Rockstar (speaking for Jedi Knight): I'm a good guy, and I hate bad guys.

Me: Hey d'you remember your old imaginary friends? What happened to them? Zippety?

Remember these guys?

Rockstar (quietly, seriously): Yeeka. Yeeka was my main friend.  Me: So what happened to them, to him. You still see him? Rockstar: <pause> He hasn't come by in a long time. He's gone to Big Boy School. He's very busy now. Me: Oh, like you, he started  a new school. But his is on.... Mars? Rockstar: Yeah. They're quite busy there. They even have to learn Chainese.

(But honestly I was a little sad.... Seems he's outgrown that phase so quickly...)

In the Cyberport

Ps: I spent most of the last few days of 2012 with killer sore throat morphing into an irritated dry cough. Ms Rockstar views my paper face mask with mild amusement and curiosity. Single-digit weather kept us mostly at home, except for brief stints for a quick meal or so Rockstar could play at the conveniently located Cyberport Funland, which turned out to be a real lifesaver... 

Pps: This was our New Year's dinner - clam sauce linguine with mushrooms, seasoned with fresh garlic and oregano - made by Kings (Rockstar doesn't like mushrooms, so he had his with quail's eggs, go figure)

Actually really yums.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    I like the part where he said that his imaginary friends have to learn Chinese even on Mars. That shows that Rockstar knows the importance of knowing how to speak and write Chinese.

    In the first photo, Ms Rockstar is looking at her brother with admiration. She sure adores him by the look of it.

    Your New Year home cooked dinner looked yummy – cooked with love, sure beats those expensive meals at 5 stars restaurants! I love to eat pasta and all kinds of mushrooms. Quail eggs with pasta? I guess the taste would go well together too as eggs go well with almost any other food.

    Happy New Year to you and your family again! May all of you have a blessed 2013!

      Yeah she is really very very adoring of him, always tries to get his attention and sit closer to him… Really hope that doesn’t change because the one who will be hurt the most if she finds someone else to adore is Rockstar.

      Re Martian Chinese I dunno, thot he said that cos he still considered Chinese the hardest subject, but he has not complained since that last Rockstarism..
