Chapter 39: The Universe and Us.

A few years ago my family and I were hanging out with an old friend and his daughter. The daughter showed a lot of interest in anime, especially Attack on Titan, drawing incredible pictures, collecting memorabilia etc.

After some time, she flicked over to Cartoon Network and we were introduced to Steven Universe. Now we are all kind of hooked on this amazing show. There’s something like 50 episodes on Netflix and if highly recommend to check it out.

Steven Universe has brought this kind of, “feel good” atmosphere into our household after watching it. Most episodes end with this happy upbeat ending that our daughter loves.

Sorry, thought I should add a post about something family related!

Chapter 26: Make Believe Voices

So, on Sunday (check out yesterday’s blog), myself, W and my daughter all went bowling and then spent some time in the arcade. Well W is stupidly good at the crane games and won my daughter a Donkey Kong cuddly toy and won himself a Robin cuddly toy. Being a fan of Teen Titans go, I pouted and he gave me the Robin, Sweet!

Anyway, we get home and are playing around when I pick up Robin and we go through my daughter’s conversation with every toy I give a voice.

Robin – “Hello there

Daughter – “Hello Robin, what you doing?”

Robin – “I’m here for hugs!”

Daughter – “Come to play with me!”

I love that she’s able to bring life to toys. Now Robin has become her go-to toy for Daddy to play with. I was sitting in the kitchen when she comes striding in and plops Robin on my lap. “Daddy, Robin talk”. We then play for half an hour in the kitchen.

Its great to get to be involved and play in my daughter’s imaginary world.

Until next time!
