Even if you’re not a parent, chances are you’ve seen at least one or more of Pixar’s Toy Story movies. I owned Toy Story 1 and 2 before I even conceived The Tackler.
Every time I viewed one of those movies, nostalgia hit me.
One day, long ago, I used to live in my imagination too – before school, work, and other responsibilities shoved the “kid in me” into a Time Out.
The Tackler hits the four year old mark in less than two weeks, and he reminds me every day how incredibly awesome The Imagination is.
Monday, as Lil Diva finally took a nap longer than thirty minutes, I was thrown back in time to my childhood as The Tackler and I had rare uninterrupted one-on-one Imagination Time.
“Mommy, you have to stay close to me. I’m protecting you from the monsters in the walls. And the dinosaurs.”
That’s right, my son, the Tackler, also spends his afternoons as a Space Ranger: protector of Mommies from the evil forces of Wall Monsters. And dinosaurs.
His laser works against both.
So if you’re all alone, and you come into contact with these creatures, who ya gonna call?
Space Ranger Tackler: Buster of Monsters and Ghosts.
Has your child(ren) done or said anything funny lately?
