Other Kids Want a Wii

Lars is home sick today. In between trips to the bathroom, he and approximately 37 stuffed friends are installed in the living room, watching TV while I work in the den. "Mama? I want the R-O-S-E-T-T-A Stone," he calls.

"You want the Rosetta Stone? Why?"

"Because I want to learn new languages!"

"Which ones?"

"All of them." He'll be a handy guy in hockey locker rooms.

What power advertisers have over our little ones. Pretty dang funny he actually told you he wanted the Rosetta Stone. And yes I concur that knowing multiple languages would be beneficial in a hockey locker room...it seems to me most hockey players in the NHL are from foreign countries.

I think it would be amusing if just to be able to say, "Oh, he speaks only Mandarin? Let me go get Lars to translate..."

You realize, of course, that you have 37 viral-infested stuffed animals ready to attack anyone who handles them. Re-read The Velveteen Rabbit!
