Space Oddity in my living room.


The boys are starting to actually play together every now and then.
I'm sure that you can imagine the running commentary
that takes place between a 5 year old and a 9 month old.

Okay, so admittedly, those were clearly the lyrics to David Bowie's Space Oddity.
Really it went something like this...

Griffin: "Five, Four, (No Koen, quit grabbing my shirt!) Three, Two, One, BLAST OFF!"

Koen
: "Blarg goo goop."

Griffin
: "Okay, so you're an astronaut and... KOEN, QUIT TRYING TO ESCAPE!"

Koen
: "b boo bah bah?"

Griffin
: "MOM, KOEN IS TOO LITTLE TO PLAY AND HE"S RUINING MY SPACE FLIGHT!"

(Griffin storms out of spaceship while Koen sprawls out and takes over the joint.)

THE END.

Those are great pictures!
At least he has a big brother wanting to play boy games! My son was stuck with a big sister that wanted to play house with him and dress him like a girl.
His first complete sentence was "Go away Caya!"

HAHA! That sounds familiar. Soon Koen will be doing more that ruining the space mission. He will be running it. the 2nd is always the bully.

My six year old still views his eleven month old brother as a toy. We are constantly reminding him that Bruiser is a person. That spaceship is so cute!

There are almost 5 years between my twins and little man - and I know exactly what takes place at your house. It only gets better!

Being a mom of two boys, this is the first of many, tents, forts, cabins, secret spy coves,etc... It is so cute to see their imagination work.

I absolutely LOVE listening to my kids play and hearing what they're saying to one another. Too cute!

kys said...

The pictures are adorable.

Beth said...

Just wait until they're old enough to figure out they can stop playing with, or fighting with, each other and gang up on Mommy instead. Then, let the good times roll....Adorable pictures, by the way. My boys would love that space unit. Cheers!

Love it! I wish I'd had a Major Tom playset thingy when I was that age!

That looks like so much fun! We got the MiniDork a fort building set for Christmas {and assembled it for her} but she kept destroying it. So I guess it'll have to wait until she's ready.
