Friday Kid Blogging

The Bear is unusually hyperactive lately. He's either running around the house pretending to be a ninja, a superhero, or someone who shoots guns (that is, until we express our unhappiness with him shooting guns, in which case he changes it into a freeze ray). Lately not only is he a well known superhero, like Spiderman (which he changes to Spiderboy), but he makes sure to let us know that he also has the power to change into any superhero. He really is cute and fun, but when we're trying to relax, take care of a crying baby, or, in the case of Lovely Wife, study, it can get on our nerves easily.

The point to that story is that when he exhausts his favorite superheroes/characters, he moves on to others. He's not content to stay with a few stalwarts. To my knowledge The Bear doesn't know much about the Power Rangers. I've never seen him watch the show, and he only has a couple PR toys he randomly received as gifts or prizes. This morning, however, he was giving me a lesson in Power Ranger-ology.

"The Red Ranger is Black" he told me.
"Well, which is he? Red or black?" I asked, knowing full well what he meant.

We circled that for a while until he made it clear that the uniform was red, but his skin is black. Then he told me:

"The leader of the Power Rangers is a dog."
"Wow, I didn't know that," I replied.
"You need to watch more Power Rangers," he lightly scolded me.

Thus endeth the lesson. I guess I've got some homework to do.

Here's a picture of CBK Jr. sleeping. Among his toys is a large red bone, given to him by one of our Chihuahuas, when she noticed that he had his own collection. She's a sweetie, but she's seven years old and pees and poops on the floor at night. That's pretty freaking irritating.

Ooh, I hope he likes it!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
