My kindergartner came back from a trip to see his grandparents saying, “Oh, coconuts!” every time something didn’t go his way.
I asked him where he came up with that expression and he said, “Expression?”
We thought it was pretty cute so we just went with it. Pretty soon, I was saying, “Oh, coconuts!” whenever I dropped something on the floor or the baby woke up early from his nap.
Then one day, Asher was watching “Jake & The Neverland Pirates” on my iPad (cuz he knows to open the Netflix app himself) and as I passed through the room, I heard the iPad say, “Oh, coconuts!”
Aha. Mystery solved. The grandparents must’ve introduced him to Jake & The Neverland Pirates on his last trip.
Whenever he’s in Florida visiting them, they watch a lot of Netflix on Bimma’s iPad. She’s particularly fond of snuggling in bed with him with the iPad in this lap pillow we bought her as a gift. It’s pretty cool. It has a little plastic screen you just slip the iPad into and then comfortably place it on your lap and watch away. He discovers a lot of new shows that way. Luckily, Netflix has a dedicated kids section with family favorites for kids 2-12 (with ratings and reviews) so it’s easy to find new shows to stream.
We’re fond of Friday Family Movie Night in mommy & daddy’s bed ourselves. Even though Asher is only 5, we’ve been doing it with different levels of success for 3 years. When he was 2, we’d barely make it through 30 minutes of a movie and have to call it quits but these days, he looks forward to Friday Family Movie Night as much as we do. We can’t wait until the baby is big enough to climb in too.
Tonight, we’re streaming “Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax” and cuddling up while Asher spills popcorn all over our bed. Which leads me to our next Friday night tradition…me and Gabe finding popcorn in our bed all night long every time we turn over. I’ll give you one guess what Saturday tradition is?
