A Hilarious New Pokemon

Yesterday, my daughter was talking to me about her day at school. She and her friend pretended to be Pokemon. Her friend was Pikachu, while my daughter was something I’d never heard of, at least in Pokemon. The word she used is a real word, but no Pokemon has that name. I was surprised and confused. But most of all, I had to laugh. The name was hilarious. And guess what? I got it all on video.

I bet you want to see that video. You won’t regret it. Check it out.

It turned out that she couldn’t pronounce the name of the main character, Ash. But still, it was very funny. Kids can say the funniest things.

For those of you who have children, what are some of the funniest things they’ve said? Let me know in the comments below.

So My Daughter Is a Superhero

It’s often interesting talking with a three-year-old child. You never know what they’re going to say. My daughter is no exception.

We get the usual refusal of food, then anger because she didn’t get the food. She screams because the show she wants to see on TV isn’t on at that time. She gets angry at us because it’s too hot or raining, and she really, really wants to do “shabondama (bubbles)” in the park.  Well, here’s a new one.

Tomoe: “Mama to papa kirin-san” (Mommy and daddy are giraffes)

Me: “Then what are you?”

Tomoe: “Spider-man!”

That’s right. My daughter is Spider-man. She has an interest in superheroes now. She’s watched some of the animated Avengers on TV, and has them associated with their colour, rather than their name. Ironman is red, for example. But her biggest obsession is Spider-man. She loves to see him on TV.

Anyone with young children that have obsessions?
