a pirate, a pirate, a pirate says...

i knew the day couldn't be too far off where calli's random comments about the casual passer-by would begin to cause me humiliation and possibly force me to defend myself physically. well... those days are here.

austin's known for great family activities and recently the park downtown hosted it's annual kite festival. lots of fun, lots of people, lots of kites and apparently... pirates.

oh yeah, it doesn't take much where-with-all to see where this ones headed.

as we made our way back to the car this nice gentleman with an unfortunate need for an eyepatch passed us and calli, without hesitation blurted--

"a pirate! a pirate!"

holy shit run!

she's really been into pirates lately. no thanks to those fucking backyardigins. her obsession is generally pretty cute. the whole singing and crouching down to belt out a great arrrrgh. but this time not so much. thank god that poor guy didn't hear her declaration. we did all we could to stifle our laughter till we separated ourselves, but damn that was so funny.

The all-too-familiar Backyardigans Pirate episode. How does that song go?

I am a pirate sailing on the sea,
My best mateys and a map
with me.
I am a pirate sailing on the sea.
ARRR! Sail with me.

Okay, that's a little disturbing.

Kids always so observant and seem to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Adds some excitement to our lives. Luckily the "pirate" didn't have a hook hand or something.

Did she have to walk the plank?

Dude, Rothfamilyadventures, you are hard core! I didn't even know those words!

PG said...

cute kids usually buy a fair amount of leeway. I am sure almost anyone would let a wisecrack from Calli roll off their back without them coming after you.

I think.

We're going to Disneyland for Zane's second birthday on the 29th. I hope the Pirates of the Caribbean ride isn't too scary for him.

we went last summer (disneyworld) and calli loved that ride. i actually think it was her favorite.

I just wanted to say to Calli's Mama, thank you very much for the pretty awesome comment on my 'Results' post.

I really appreciate it.

(I would have just mailed that but I couldn't find an email link, so sorry for gate crashing the pirate party lol)

Ho Ho Ho and a bottle of rum anyone?
