You may have seen my earlier post about Hollis and interactive television watching. (It's okay that my preschooler watches hours of television because it is "interactive" - whatever, I can justify anything.) The other night we somehow ended up watching tennis. No one in our family is a tennis player and it is one of the few sports that John doesn't follow, so I am not sure why it was on. I think it came on after the drag race Hollis was watching. Hey, don't judge me - like I said, "Interactive". Hollis took one look at screen and this is the conversation that followed.
Hollis: Ook, Ook it's tennis!
Me: Uh huh
Hollis: Those boys are playing tennis!
Hollis: I need a tennis racquet.
Hollis: I not have a tennis racquet.
Me: Nope, we don't have a tennis racquet.
Hollis: Oh! I DO have a tennis racquet.
This is a tennis racquet:
A rousing game of floor mat tennis ensued.
Hollis will NOT be watching the diving competition during the Olympics. And probably not archery...or fencing...or shot put...or javelin. Okay, maybe we just won't watch at all.
