There's a phrase I never thought you would hear in my house. Along with:
"Wash yourself Nimrod."
"Get dressed Nimrod."
"Brush your teeth Nimrod."
Bad parenting? Nope. Creative and imaginative child.
The girls recently watched Mr. Popper's Penguins. A Jim Carrey flick that I enjoyed too. Cute. Good message. Down side...one of the 6 penguins was named Nimrod- due in part to him doing things like walking into walls.
Leah especially enjoyed this movie. She first loved Loudy-I think because she could yell without punishment. However, Nimrod seems to be her penguin of choice to play make-believe. I love how her imagination is so big! She takes on a role and does a voice, actions, and goes so far to tell me that penguins don't wear clothes....it took a lot of convincing to get her pajamas on after her bath.
Hilarious. That's Leah. Three years old and she just gets humor.
I had tucked my little penguin in, went to my room, and from across the house I hear David say, "Goodnight Nimrod" and close her door. I just about busted a gut laughing.
