Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

If The Five-Year-Old ran the Superbowl…

WordlessWedSBBiggerThe Five-Year-Old, changing into pajamas after staying up very late to watch the first half of the Superbowl last Sunday: “Mommyo, the Kitty Superbowl was today.”

Mommyo: “Oh? Who played?”

The Five-Year-Old: “The Patriots vs. the Autobots.”

Mommyo, curiously: “That’s quite a match-up. Who won?”

The Five-Year-Old, matter-of-factly: ‘The Autobots.”

Mommyo, sadly: “Oh, the poor Pats. They just can’t catch a break this year.”

The Five-Year-Old, reassuringly: “Oh, they won too. And the Chicago Bears. And the Auburn Tigers.”

Mommyo, perplexedly: “Huh. So how does the Kitty Superbowl work, exactly?”

The Five-Year-Old, didactically: “There are four teams playing. The same four teams every year. The game only lasts an hour, then it’s done or not time. Every year they play totally different, and every year they all tie.”

Mommyo, appreciatively: “I wish every football game had done or not time after an hour. Then I’d watch them all!”

The Five-Year-Old, enthusiastically: “Me too!”

    How cute! I think your little one might be on to something with that one hour done or not time.

    Thanks for linking up over at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.

      I know. I suspect the key to achieving it is to cut out all the commercials. While that would vastly improve my experience of the average football game, it would trim some enjoyment from the Super Bowl experience.
