The Price of Nostalgia

Should your husband decide to start showing your two sons old He-Man videos on YouTube, be prepared to make cardboard swords from an L.L. Bean shipping box so they can hoist them aloft and shout, "By the power of Grayskull!" over and over again. Four inches from the baby's head, which makes it kind of hard for the baby to fall asleep.

I just thought you should all learn from my experience.

They just don't want Jack to be left out, or may be it's just that he's a great prop that can't get away.

What is it with little an big boy's fascination and guns, swords, and other varied representations of things that cause bodily harm. He-Man videos will do the trick, but I'm not sure anyone at Cubby's school would understand the reference were he to try and share.

Your two ( eventually three) boys are definitely boys when it comes to their play choices!

Cousin Ethan here...very funny...we started off waiting many years to let the kids watch this and that movie, now that the older ones get to watch so do the younger, so I have a 2 year old girl who can do a perfect "p r e s c i o u s" in Golum voice. They sword fight all the time also. Our 4 year old asked me the other day about Bilbo Fett.
