What a fun time as a kid, you could be anything you wanted, and have a good time doing it. Usually you would put forth the best effort you had to make the scenario as real as possible.
The boys have been doing a lot of role playing lately. Today in particular they were pretending to be Transformers. They've never seen transformer movies or videos, I'm not sure where they've gotten this from, maybe a TV commercial.
Our morning started out as usual. They were playing Star Wars figures, then moved to playing with their Light Sabers, saying "Die", "NO - you can't make me dead!", "Oh, yes I can slice you." "Watch out, I'll make you dead!" (What on earth and where did this come from? Blake said it's just in little boys blood, they want guns, knives, weapons, etc. They think it's ultra cool.) I know Cars 2 has a lot of spies wanting to kill Lightening McQueen. So with the recent movie that we saw, I assume that's where a lot of this is coming from.
I soon hear from the bedroom, more of "Be dead", "Die", "Watch out", "Don't get up!", "Get under the dungeon. Transform!" Well, I walked into a whole lot of wrestling, jumping on each other, flying into the air, flopping around with a ton of grunting. Well, it was really funny and was cracking me up, so I ran and got my camera and snapped some pictures to share. Here they are:
Loading as much ammunition into the waistband of their sleep clothes as possible. Items such as: Light sabers, magnifying glass, tweezers, and a long noise maker - kind of like a rain stick.
They are gearing up to fight each other.
Introducing Mr. Transformer on the left, and Mr. Mean Bing on the right. (The boys came up with their own transformer names) I might add that Mr. Bing and Mr. Transformer are both pretty scary when they go into wrestling mode.
Mr. Transformer takes a turn puttin' the hurt on Mr. Mean Bing
A knee slam to Mr.Mean Bing from Mr. Transformer
Mr. Mean Bing musters up the energy to stand up
Mr. Mean Bing goes into over drive
Finally, Mr. Transformer is thrown to the ground
But not for long
They tussle with each other for a bit
Mr. Mean Bing uses his special "Ruff N Tuff" move, the spreading of two fingers
That "Ruff N Tuff" move only made Mr. Transformer mad, he turned Mr. Mean Bing over and pounced on him
Mr. Mean Bing makes his way up again from the ground and fakes an attempt to get away
What Mr. Transformer didn't know was that he was about to fall backward on top of him
Mr. Transformer let him fall onto the bed and not on himself
Mr. Mean Bing takes a rest, while he sent Mr. Transformer to the dungeon (under the bed)
Once again, the match will begin.......Mr. Transformer emerges from the deep, dark, musty depths of the dungeon!!!!
I don't think I'd want to meet either one of them in a dark alley.
