Disappointment


Connor: Why did the Wicked Witch of the West melt?

Me: Dorothy threw water at her.
Connor: But why did water kill her.
Me: I don't know, it's her kryptonite.
Connor: What's kryptonite?
Me: *blank stare* Have I taught you nothing?

  3. You can totally get him back for this. Tell him again about kryptonite, but then also remind him of its arch nemesis kryptoday. Then send him off to the playground for some role play. Good fun. For you. :-)

    I knitted Youngest a bright lime green blanket when he was 5-ish. He proclaimed it the Kryptonite blanket.

    It resurfaced during the renovation, it was tucked back in the shelves somewhere... he was so excited.

    So glad to see you're not dead. Carry on.

  12. *blink* He doesn't know what kryptonite is? That's downright unAmerican! Quick -- Superman marathon!

  14. Wave a My Little Pony in his face and when he cringes and backs away, don't waste your chance.

  15. Clearly if you aren't blogging then you have plenty of time to be edumecating those kids of yours.
