So, I may look like this right now:
But inside I’m like this:
New episodes of Doctor Who are as exciting as Christmas in this house. My two oldest boys (almost 13 and 6) have been talking about it for WEEKS, bugging the crap out of me “WHEN IS NEW DOCTOR WHO, MOMMY? MOMMY! MOMMY! WHEN IS NEW DOCTOR WHO?!” So when we found out the date, I had to write it on the calendar, and they’ve been counting down the days since then.
The five year old is less than thrilled. Even with the promise of staying up past his bedtime to watch with us, he was ready to cry before bed last night.
“What’s wrong, baby?” I asked.
“Mommy, I don’t like that my ONLY TWO OPTIONS are to watch Doctor Who with you or to go to bed. That is NOT NICE! You KNOW I only like the 9th Doctor and ROSE!”
“Well, I’m sorry, but there is no more 9th – but we can watch him on netflix tomorrow if you want.”
“You know that ISN’T THE SAME.”
I’m still dealing with it. He’s been sulking all day so far and I have no idea what I’m going to do to keep him from crying tonight. Hopefully husband can find something to distract him with to keep him out of our hair, because in case I haven’t mentioned it? NEW DOCTOR WHO TODAY!
Meg and I spent last night hashing out ideas for tee shirts, and WE HAVE ONE DONE! You can find a design with our FAVOURITE River Song quote from last series in our shop here. We’re hoping to come up with other awesome things before too much longer, but both of us really love this one (and my 12 year old is bugging the crap out of me to buy him one for his 13th birthday WHICH IS COMING UP). We hope you do too.
Also, for those of you that are new here, you can see one Meg’s very first owl cartoons (which does a very good job of explaining what my kids are like when it comes to the Doctor) by clicking here.
HAPPY NEW WHO DAY, EVERYONE!
