The Knights Have Taken Over

Boys…..girls…..apples…..oranges! When the boy has a project I rarely hear about it unless he needs me to buy something, and if I am lucky I will get to see the finished project. The girl…..well her projects take over our lives, but then she is the over achiever.

We started last week with A Knights Tale and Monty Python. I told her she would probably get extra points for mentioning the Knights who say Ni!

This week she started asking all kinds of questions about King Arthur so what’s a mom to do? I pulled out The Mists of Avalon, my favorite of the tales.Mists_Of_Avalon

 

I sat and watched the beginning with her until Guinevere came on the hill…..now there is a character I can’t stand! So I went to take my shower and she comes in when the scene with the Rites of Beltane was happening, the fact that I was in the shower meant nothing. “The guy behind the mask….that’s her little brother isn’t it?” I respond yes and she says “I knew it! And that’s really gross, you made me watch a movie with incest…really mom?” “Oh just shut the door!” was my final response on that one.

The girl knows about my boyfriend in the basement and she really tried her best to convince me to ask if we could borrow him for a prop…WP_20130915_001

The reality….we went to Toys R Us and I bought a knight costume for $25.00 and when she is done with it, my nephew can have it. Helmet, shield, sword, bow, and tunic, That will have to do.

The things we do for our kids….somewhere during the Mists of Avalon my nose started running. I tried my best to get things done, but when you don’t feel good…it’s extra hard to find the motivation….Zia
