Rockstarism #382/ Miss-Speak #40: He Said, She Said

#382/ 40 Me: D'you know how Spiderman got his powers? Rockstar: <not looking up> Got bitten by a spider. Miss: <authoritatively> Wouldn't it be funny if he got bitten by a fly and then he became Fly Man?   --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- At mealtime, watching me put some egg in Rockstar's bowl...  Miss: I want some... (I put some egg in her bowl) ........squid. There's the squid, Mum-may.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And words of wisdom to start the week... Miss: No one can really fart balloons.

The rockstars recently researched (fine, Googled) that Methane however, really is flammable. May you find joy and discovery in the most mundane (possibly gross) things life brings you this week 🙂

A Force Not To Be Taken Lightly

One fine day of play... This is Rockstar, playing at "The Force" with the Miss. This is a game they invented, that involves The Miss flinging him about various trampolines by using The Force. Both of them found this hilarious. IMG_4298 IMG_4297 IMG_4302 IMG_4304

Not so hilarious: When The Miss then tried to apply The Force to the line of kids ahead of her, queueing to have a go on one of the other attractions. She was not amused (or quiet about it), when she couldn't move the line.

The rockstars are no longer allowed to play The Force for fear of the lure to the Dark Side. Epilogue: IMG_4327 And so this blur is Rockstar. Note foam cubes still floating in mid-air a la The Matrix, from his "takeoff". And this the landing: IMG_4323 IMG_4316 IMG_4315 (No we didn't send him for erm, lessons 😀 He started doing this on his own about 6 months ago. Life's a blast, when it's not a brush with sheer ice-cold terror)

Rockstarism #381/ Miss-Speak #39: “Girl Watching”

#381/ #39   One day, people watching..... Rockstar: Mum. That looks like that girl from ... who was mean to Miss... remember the girl.... <trails off> Me: <glance over to confirm we've probably never seen her before> Dude I doubt it (Rockstar raises his eyebrows) - you don't remember - Rockstar: Oh. Yeah.  Me: - don't remember girls - Rockstar: Yeah. Me: - because you never really - Rockstar: Yeah. Me: You don't look at girls. Rockstar: Yeah. Yeah.  Me: And there's a high chance - Rockstar: They all look the same. Yeah. Probably. Never seen her before.  Me: Yeah. Rockstar: Forget I said anything. Me: Yeah. Miss: <pipes up loudly> This- this girl was mean to me. Me: What? But - Rockstar: You've never seen her before.  Miss: No, no I haven't. But she was mean to me <pouts>   <pause> Rockstar: <roars with laughter>  (Miss can't keep a straight face for very long either)
