Nerdy Mom Plays With Kids’ Toys, Vol. 3: Romance

Romance is in the air in our rec room! Today’s post is extra-nerdy, and kinda inappropriate.

{I do have quite a few of these photos to help get me through the month… And also because once you start seeing the possibilities, making toy portraits is rather addictive. But I promise to write something worth reading occasionally too.}

mulan-garfield
Mulan was pretty sure Surfer Garfield wouldn’t bring honour to her family… but she couldn’t deny a flicker of interest.

 

lord-garmadon-ariel
Lord Garmadon had never felt butterflies like this before. He couldn’t believe she would grant him this dance. Ariel, on the other hand, was a bit weirded out by the sinister dude grasping her skirts.

 

prince-hans-bayala-yamuna
We thought Prince Hans was a sociopath, but he really just needed the love of a good woman like Yamuna to awaken him to romance.

The cold never bothered me anyway.

It’s that time of year when winter seems long – even though in my area of Ontario, it hasn’t been that tough a winter… I’m still thinking of green leaves with wistfulness.

Here’s my three-year-old in her FAVOURITE OUTFIT, showing off her dazzling lack of tuning, made up for by her soul-deep commitment to the role. May it warm your heart in the midst of the snow… or at least make you giggle a bit.

A Smiley Video for a Happy Frozen Friday

My kids love the movie “Frozen.” Like almost all kids. And I’m not ashamed to say that I also love it; I’ve probably seen it a dozen times and I could still cry every time, if I let myself. I will most likely go on about the reasons why another time.

For now, here’s two-year-old AB’s side of a (highly edited) conversation we had in November about the plot of Frozen. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll probably recognize a concept or a direct quote here and there. You may also notice some outright fallacies. If you haven’t seen the movie – don’t worry! This information doesn’t make enough sense to contain spoilers.

Mostly, I just love her sense of drama. I wish you could see her, when E closes his bedroom door – she’ll go knock and sing the whole first verse of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman,” complete with wistful “Okay, bye…” at the end. Or even better, the two of them do an inspiring version of “For The First Time In Forever” – with many bits missing, but the passion is there.

Anyway, here’s this. I hope it makes you smile. Happy Friday!
