Behind the wheel

Conversation between les enfants on the way home from school today:
* disclaimer - NONE of my children have seen Star Wars, Sleepy Hollow OR Scooby Doo!!!

T: Do you remember Star Wars W?

W: Yeah!

T: I like the bit in Star Wars where the spaceship lands on Daft Vader's head

W: Oh Yeah, and how his face turns into Luke Skywalker - that is sooooo cool.

T: Have you seen Sleepy Hollow?

W: What one is that? Is that Scooby Doo?

I: Skoooooby Doooo, Skooby Doo............ (sung to the tune of Jingle Bells!)

T: No, it is the scary one.

W: Oh Yeah! I've seen that. (To me) Mum, do we have Sleepy Hollow?

Me: Yes we do, but you haven't seen it.

W: Oh yeah, that's right. Can I watch it?

Me: Uh, No!

T: It is far too scary for you (this is my son who is scared of Monsters Inc, Toy Story, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty..........the list is endless - he even hides at the start of Finding Nemo!)

W: We could watch Muzzy?

I: Muzzy, Muzzy, Muzzy, Muzzy....................

this continues until we get get the idea!

Having sat alongside the beloved blogger 'en voiture' whilst a conversation about Madagascar (which they have seen - about 56 times) went on in the back I have no trouble believing that this is an accurate account of things including I's sproradic interjections with snippets of theme tunes etc. Always a pleasure...always an education!!
