Cassie is playing a Blood Elf alt she just started…
We both love making an alt, playing to about 15, then deleting it and starting over. Are we the only ones that do that?
Anyway, so she’s out questing and leveling, and Alex is watching her and, ahem, ‘coaching’ her.
She’s commenting to me over our intercom that someone must be leveling because there are no ore nodes, and she isn’t sure if she wants to do quests out there because she just did those quests on another alt not too long ago…
And Alex announces, and I hear him say it, “Mommy, you don’t have to quest, you can just kill bad guys.”
It’s so heartwarming to know that we’re teaching him the kind of values and keen analytical skills that will carry him through the important decisions of his life!
Oh, and the little wagon he made at Home Dept this morning is so cute! Afterwards, we went to the paint area, and let him pick out from allll of the little samples which color he wanted to paint it, and then we went and had them do one of the sample jars of Behrt paint in that color, and I showed him how they take the white base, and then add ink dyes, and then put the little jar in the plastic container and stick it in the mixer and shake it all about. we got some brushes, bristle and sponge, and a little paint tray, and we’re gonna paint it tomorrow.
The paint sample jars actually will cover a lot of square footage, about 4′ x 6′, which is great for projects, cost about $3, and they have a Behr version that includes the primer built in.
I need to, like, find some wood kits for making racing cars, the kind with the wind up rubber band motors. If I work him up, then maybe he’ll be ready for Estes Model Rockets when he hits 9 or 10.
He loved the whole process… I can see him someday, wanting to paint something, and thinking, “Well, all I have to do is go pick out the color I want, and get it, and some brushes, and just do it myself.”
