TV or Piñata?

008

The other morning while my sister in law was in the shower, my 5 year-old nephew took a stick to the TV and beat it until it completely broke, as evidenced by the above picture. This act was so out of character for him and I couldn’t figure out why he would do this.

It wasn’t until I asked what he was watching at the time that it all became very clear. He’d been watching “Curious George’s Birthday” which is all about a piñata, and I guess he just wanted to join in on the fun, not thinking that it would actually break the TV.  He had just hit a piñata over the weekend for a birthday party, so I guess it was just a little too fresh in his mind.

    EFF that SH!T RIGHT IN THE @SS! Any 5-year-old should know a whole hell of a lot better than that! Or maybe I just chill with intelligent and/or well-behaved 5-year-olds…Yikes, this is one of the many many many many many reasons why I will never have kids. Although, if I did…my 5-y-o would know better. Sorry, but that is just a way too expensive toy to be hitting with ANYTHING! I sure hope the bro and sis-in-law pitched in at least (if not paid for the whole thing)!

    Oh no. Oh no. I think we have that Curious George DVD. I will bear that in mind!

    Must be a developmentally delayed child. A normal 5-year old should know better.

      So?  It’s possible but not sure why it matters in any case.

    LOVE the back story to that pic!  
    Today, I couldn’t resist doing the slurpy sock monster that eats my son’s toes, and ends up on his foot.  My baby is 8.  8 1/2.  gulp.  and he tells me, I know that’s not really real you know.  He explains, if it was real, it would stay like this, he makes the sock puppet with the 2nd sock.  And then he does it to his other foot.  sigh. 

    This kid is the one who was always over doing it and ended up whacking us with whatever was at hand.  It was so hard to be understanding after a while.  I love that you figured out what was going on for him.
