Rockstarism #363/ Miss-Speak #46 – A Very Solomon Solution

#363/ #46

Me (to Rockstar): So which place did you want to research for your assignment?

(Before Rockstar can respond)

Miss: Nooooo. Stop. Talking. Noooooo.

Me: Fine. You have homework too. Then we start on yours first. Me (to Miss): What do you want to bring for Show n Tell?

Miss: Umm... umm...

Rockstar: Well? If we stop talking you start talking.

Miss: <straight-faced> Mine-cwaft.

Rockstar: <flinches> Uh-oh... 

Miss: <sweetly> I want to bring Mine-cwaft, Mum-may...

Rockstar: No! You're not bringing my stuff! What if you break it, what if you lose something?

Me: Erm... What about the little figures, you have some duplicates right? Oh no wait, your duplicates are gross - how am I going to explain to your sister's school when she shows her classmates Minecraft zombies and zombie pigmen?

<Rockstar snorts>


Rockstar: I know! Why don't you let her take (Polaroid) pictures of all my stuff that she wants to talk about? Then she even gets to use that (instant camera from before Rockstar was born, that I recently found while cleaning up). I'll take everything out for her to take pictures. Ok, Miss?

<Miss nods>

Me: Shoulda named you Solomon, your Highness.

Rockstar: What, I just don't want her to lose my stuff. <mutters> I'll go crazy.

Miss: Yaaaaaay!

Partners In Crime striking an agreement (no, actually sharing a snack)

ps: In the end she's not bringing Polaroids of Rockstar's Minecraft Lego etc though... Just said that to yank his chain..

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.

    Wah, so Miss Rockstar knows all about Minecraft too. In the end what did she bring?

    You are a very cool mommy to allow them snacks in bed. Love the photo of them – they have a strong bond.

      She first learned it from Rockstar’s Legos… She thought all Legos were Minecraft Legos (now she realises there’s Star Wars too :P) She’s bringing either Polaroids of the guinea pig’s cage (part of the reason I led her there is because she took his latest visit very seriously (after previously being on my back a lot for him to come over – AGAIN) and worked at laying out his bedding, mixing his food etc every single night for two weeks and I wanted her to get some credit for that… BUT she may have decided to bring her water-activated mermaid tomorrow 😀 We’ll see…
