Captain Hooker and his band of merry thieves

David has a thing for pirates. Pirate ships, treasure, good pirates, bad pirates, treasure maps.

When he eats his yogurt in the morning, he says, “Mommy, I’m digging for treasure!”

So we bought him the yogurt with the fruit on the bottom, because that’s as close to finding treasure in a yogurt cup as you can get.

He likes Peter Pan too, because….. well there’s Captain Hook (a pirate) and his other favorite thing, crocodiles. When he sees the Peter Pan video or we read the book, he cheers when Tick-Tock (the croc) tries to bite Captain Hooker (he says Hooker, we keep correcting him, but Captain Hooker it is I guess).

So why am I telling you this?

Trust me, there is a payoff bloggy friend…

David’s 4th birthday is in May. We got a catalog in the mail that has party supplies for kids, so I told him to start thinking about what theme he wanted for his party this year.

Of course, he goes straight to the Pirate section.

And, he says this:

“Mommy, I am happy to have a party.
I want a pirate party.
I want a big cake with icing, and candles to blow out.
I want pirate hats for my cousins and grandpas.
I want a big gift.
I would like to have sparkly to drink (that’s Sprite if you are wondering), and I want lots of hugs.
…..and I want a hooker.”

ROFL, I was so sad that husband was not in the room to hear the last sentence. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants.

David walked over to me, and said… “no hooker? how do I get a hooker?”

I told him to ask his Dad about it. I’m sure that was a good conversation after S. stopped laughing long enough to answer him.

And, the upside is that I laughed so hard I think I burned enough calories to account for the piece of chocolate I had after dinner.

Priceless!

  1. OMG that was funny! My son is into pirates as well. And give him time to find out about hookers. I’m sure his Daddy will teach him that one. Same guy taught my son about wanting a “hummer.” LOL

  2. How funny! My son, Xander, has been into pirates ever since McDonald’s had those Pirates of the Caribbean toys in their happy meals. The blow up sword has long since been destroyed, but we still have the dew rag hat, treasure chests, and “spotting scopes”.
