This morning Barrett decided that instead of being a Texas Rangers baseball player when he grows up...he wants to be a Power Ranger. I told him that Power Rangers are actors. I don't think he understands what that means. I tried to explain to him as in someone named John Smith plays Jayden the red Power Ranger...but that after they finish filming him, he goes home to a normal house. I don't think he believes me. Here's a bit of our conversation this morning:
Momma: The actors probaby live in Hollywood and that's where they film the Power Rangers shows.
barrett: Well then I guess I'll move to Hollywood.
M: But I thought you wanted to live next door to Brody when you grow up?
b: But we don't have any gap sensors here!
M: What's a gap sensor?
b: It's what tells you if a nylock (bad guy) is coming.
M: Maybe you can buy one somewhere.
b: I don't think so. I've never seen them buy one.
M: Maybe you should ask Camden. He got samuraizers somewhere. (Camden....the blame for this new obsession!...had a Power Rangers birthday party. He went to a bunch of AT&T stores with his mom and got old display phones to pass out to the kids at the party. These are their samuraizers!)
b: Those aren't REAL samuraizers! Those are just toys.
M: Oh. Well I'm sure you'll get a real one when you're a real Power Ranger.
b: But how will I train? The real Power Rangers have been training since they were little kids! They train with wooden swords. I don't have a wooden sword!
M: You can use some of the bamboo at Daddy Steve & Namaw's house.
b: That's not a wooden sword!
M: They make some floors that look like wooden floors out of bamboo...so I'm sure the bamboo would work as a wooden sword.
b: Well...I'll have to add and handle too it...and I'll have to train every day. I know what they do to train. What color will I be? There's already a red, yellow, blue, pink, gold, and green. Maybe I can be an orange Power Ranger?
M: That would work. You already have a lot of orange from your Marlins gear.
b: But what will my power be? The fire smasher is awesome...but Jayden already has fire smasher.
M: You'll probably have your own power.
b: Ok. You know I'll still come visit you when I live in Hollywood as Power Ranger....but I guess that's only if I decide I don't want to be a Texas Rangers baseball player.
I'm so glad our kids dream big! lol!
