Nuke It!

March 23, 2007

I was reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears to Girlie Girl. When I got to the part about the porridge being too cold, she interrupted and asked,

“Mommy, why didn’t Goldilocks just put it in the microwave?”

OMG, they are just way too smart these days. But, that could so be an adaptation to the fairy tale… just think about it- it was too cold so she nuked it and it got scalding hot. :)

That would put an interesting twist on a classic! LOL!

Hi there! Parenting Toddlers sent me your way through their blogroll. I thought I would drop by and check your site out.

You have such a fun blog! I have such a fear of flying but I swallow it and ride the skies anyway. I have such respect for flight attendants. My hat goes off to you! I will definitely be favoriting your blog!

For some reason our version of the story has mutated into “Lillian and the Three Crocodiles” and involves swimming pools and bowls of worms. A little odd but guaranteed to produce giggles.

Ha! It’s so funny how intricate technology has become in our daily lives. We’ve had a week of technology woes between TVs and cable service and it’s impossible to explain to my 4 year old why I can just make it all come on - or go right to his favorite show anymore….LOL Boy times have changed. I remember when the microwave was introduced! Oh how cool is was to own one of the HUGE first models.

You should get “Goldilocks and the Three Hares” by Heidi Petach…it’s a hoot! There are also a few other versions of the tale out there that are funny.

But in the 3 Hares version Momma Hare says “The oatmeal burned again. Why can’t we have a microwave like everyone else?” and Baby Hare says “Yes! I want to see an egg explode!”

one of our favorites!

Microwaves can heat up just about anything. My kids love it for the popcorn it can create.
Have a great Saturday.

That is hilarious! My 15 year old stepson still doesn’t believe us that we didn’t have a computer when we were younger. And that our tv was black and white!

You need to change the story a little.
Little Ravenlocks…..

and definitely add the part where she nuked it a little too much ….. and had to sit it in the fridge to cool off.
