Hannah, on the other hand, is obsessed with monkeys. She LOVES Boots the monkey from Dora the Explorer. And she'll play the Monkey pre-school game for hours on the iPad, it's the only time she sits still (we're def taking this on the airplane when we go on vacation!). And she loves, loves, LOVES Curious George.
So the other day, these two obsessions collided at the breakfast table.
Linsey: George Washington was so amazing! Was he the leader of the whole world, Daddy?
Tom: Not the whole world, but he was a great leader of our country.
Hannah: He was a good monkey.
Me: What, Hannah?
Hannah: Curious George was a very good monkey.
Me: Oh...yeah, he was.
Linsey: (annoyed) Not Curious George, Hannah - George Washington! He was the leader of our country...
Tom: Okay, girls, that's enough. Eat your food.
Natalie, not quite as advanced as my older two, is currently obsessed with A&D ointment. She opens the closet and gets the tube of it out all the time and uses it as a teether. If we take it away, she screams like an animal caught in a trap, and no substitute is acceptable. We do always take it away though! Still, it's on her clothes, our DVD collection, and did you know A&D ointment makes wood floors REALLY slick? Just an FYI for ya :)
Anything your kids are obsessed with, or am I alone on this one?
