Discerning daughter

Posted on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 in Family, On the box, Strange and Unusual

Puppychild likes to watch DVDs as she falls alseep, it’s a wicked habit, I know that.  I plan to put a stop to it as soon as I can figure out how…

…anyway normally she’d ask for Cinderella or the Care Bears or some Godawful crud like that but tonight she impressed me no end;

“Mommy?” (shouted from the top of the stairs)

“Yes-see?”

“Wanna watch?”

“What you wanna watch?”

“King Arthur.  King of the Brittins!”

Now you’d expect a child of three years of age to produce many clear words relating to stuff she knows through endless practice, but these knocked me for six altogether – turns out she watches this film sometimes with her dad while I’m at work and is well impressed with the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog.   I went to the bookshelf and found it – Monty Python’s The Holy Grail

She loves this film a little bit too much.

I’m waiting for that day though… that day when I find myself having to man-handle her in the supermarket for wanting to trolleyseat-surf, and for her to shout for all to hear…

“Help! Help! I’m being repressed! Come see the violence inherent in the system!”

Ahh.  It’s good to see the apple hasn’t fallen far from the nnNi.

Bring on the comments

  1. Please may I have her?

  2. Medbh says:

    Better for her to learn that you can tell the king by the one that doesn’t have shit all over him!

  3. Carole says:

    I’m afraid that watching TV to fall asleep is a habit she may never grow out of. Just ask my husband!

  4. Ha! At least she didn’t tell you smelt of elderberries!

  5. kerryview says:

    I can hear her say “what did bloggers ever do for us?”

  6. warrior says:

    oh well you could just start showing her really crappy documentaries, she would give up watching and be asleep in no time

  7. Quickroute says:

    Always look on the bright side…..
    That’s a young age to have appreciation of such sharp wit!

  8. Nick says:

    “Help! Help! I’m being repressed! Come see the violence inherent in the system!” Now that would be a lot more healthy and socialist feminist than swooning over the imperialist King Arthur. Some serious brainwashing required right now.

    My daughter loved the life of Brian but I did have the “Isn’t this the bit where he gets up in the morning & opens the shutters……….oh shit!”

  10. Lottie says:

    Ah Monty Python. She has good taste!

  11. Just wait until she starts bleuing her neuse in your general direction.

    Xbox4nappyrash; She wouldn’t be a patch on your very own mini-me, but she can tutor Spencer in the meantime…

    Medbh; Same applies to the rent collector in our neighbourhood.

    Carole; *sigh* Yep I know what that’s like. Oh well.

    Thriftcriminal; Give it time…

    Kerryview; Don’t worry, as soon as she’s computer trained I’ll get her on our side!

    Warrior; That’s asking for war.

    Quickroute; I think it’s the crazy man on the mountain and the monster and the most excellent animated bits in between… I’m not sure she gets the wit so much. I caught her examining a coconut in the supermarket :)

    Nick; So how do I explain Castle Anthrax?!

    An FearBui; HA! Yes, a quick draw is a very necessary skill where chis’lers are concerned!!

    Lottie; Only temporarily. She’s back on the Disney buzz now.

    Sam, Problemchildbride; And demanding shrubberies! (Nice ones)

  13. Oh you sneaky wee lurker you!
    ;0)

  14. Kirk M says:

    I would have died right there at the bottom of your stairs from laughing if I had been there. God help you if she starts demanding a shrubbery!!! (or says “NI” to you).

    Tell her I love her from me could you?

  15. Kirk M says:

    Oh yeah, I’m finally going get get time today to do that meme you shot at me. Please excuse my tardiness. :P

  16. K8 says:

    Xbox4NappyRash; Sussed.

    Kirk M; Dude, there’s no rush on the memes, or it’s not in the rules anywhere that there should be so far as I know. I think my record for meme tardiness is 4 weeks. Besides, those questions take a bit of thunking!!
