What an imagination...

Avery's imagination was at work tonight. She watched her 'night night' movie, "Duke and the Great Pie War", from Veggie Tales. She has this thing inside of her, where halfway through a movie, she immediately has to 'play' the movie. She can't watch the whole thing, and THEN come out and play, but has to right in the middle. Tonight she came out and told us she was getting married to Duke. Duke...being played by Simba our stuffed Lion King lion.

It was bedtime, and Daddy was saying "Avery, time to go to bed." She says, "Not yet...I have to get married first". Daddy says, "You have 2 minutes to get married then". So, here goes Avery over to the stuffed Lion (who has an Easter egg on his head as a crown) and hugs and kisses him. Then, we hear her say "Okay, we're married now!". To show his devotion to her, Duke gave Avery a seashell (played by an Easter egg), as a "symbol of true love" as Avery says. She then says that now Duke has two wives, her and Petunia. We then go on to tell her that Duke can only have 1 wife, and she says Duke picks her 'cause he loves her the most...

Bedtime comes, and Avery decides that Duke doesn't sleep in her room (thank God), but he sleeps in the living room, "'cause that's where Lion husbands sleep". Before she goes to bed, she plants another kiss on him, followed by a "goodnight Duke"...I hope she didn't hear me laughing.

I don't know whether this is cute, or just plain weird that my daughter plays getting married to a stuffed Lion...Lucky for me, I found a photo that I took back in October of Avery and her Lion husband...
