When we go through the round about at Westgate or pass a Pak n'Save he always asks if we are going to netball- "Betball?"
When we go past the Luckens Road intersection he asks if we are going to rugby- "Bugby?"
Considering Merenia hasn't yet figured out that Christchurch is in New Zealand and got lost coming home from the Dairy the other day this kind of blows me away.
Will is also quite obsesssed with Hawks, the moon, stars, planes, fans, Parachutes (Powa-toot), Helicopters (Hopters), Hammers (Ham-Ma!), the Tape measure (tape), lawn mower (MOW-wa), brushing his teeth (teeth), and the 'bird' on Les' uniform.
All this led me to wonder at what point does something go from pasion to Obsession? And what is the difference between that and a fetish.
The Hammer, Hawks, Moon, and Mower are definitely obsessions.
Boobies and Teeth are fetishes.
And all the rest as well as "side" (getting outside) are definitely passions.
It is nice that he has a wide variety of interests. And cool to see how he is influenced by his family. He spotted some All Blacks Baby gear, spoons and plates etc with the silver fern in the chemist the other day and said "Bugby!". And he must be about the only 21 month old to see the logos and say "Chiefs" and "Adidas".
While we are on cute Will stuff I should mention that Merenia has a new nickname- "Bear" which is what 'Merenia' get abbreviated down into in 'Will-ease'.
He has also added the word 'no' to his vocabulary and uses it with increasing regularity and passion.
And an unphotographed from the other day. I was doing my morning blog hop when I came across a link for CuteOverload a website with lots of cute animal photos and video. Will was sitting on my lap and Merenia was beside us, Kieran came and joined us and we were watching 3 videos of some silly kittens and Will was saying "uh-oh!" before the cat did the silly thing and totally cracking up along with the big kids when it happened. It was super funny and super cute.
