I was driving the big kids to church when I had the following conversation:
Mom: “No sweetie, what?”
Thumbelina: (pauses for dramatic effect – then makes a sweeping hand gesture) "FIREBLADE.”
Mom: “That may be the most awesome thing I have ever heard.”
Thumbelina: ‘Yeah. I know. I love that name." (whispers in awestruck voice) "FIREBLADE.”
Hawk (age 5): “When I’m in band when I’m older, do you know what I’m going to call it?”
Mom: “I love it.”
Hawk: “And the band is only going to play songs about Yoda. I’m going to make up most of the songs but then we’re also going to sing other songs that aren’t supposed to be about Yoda but totally should be. And then people will hear them and be like WHOA – that song is totally about Yoda and I didn’t even know it.”
Mom: “Fantastic. Like what songs are you thinking of?”
Hawk: “We are the Champions” and other awesome songs like that.
Mom: (pauses to let this idea sink in) “I think you’re both going to be rock stars.”
Hawk and Thumbelina look at each other and shrug.
