I like Peter Pan. I like watching the deebeedee (Ed: DVD) about Peter Pan, the lost boys, Wendy and the gang.
But then I like to watch all the Disney movies. Especially the ones about the princesses.
Yesterday I watched Anastasia. My daddy lets me watch stuff. He says it’s good for my language deebeedee mints. (Ed: developments).
When my mommy puts the deebeedees on they sound differently than when my daddy does. I think it’s a Chinese and English thing. My mommy lets me watch stuff in Chinese and my daddy lets me watch them in English.
Same story…different sounds. Doesn’t really matter to me. I get it. I know what’s going on. But Ariel sounds better when my daddy turns it on. 😎
My daddy lets me watch Anpanman on his cell phone and that’s even more different. (Ed: Japanese).
I like to watch Peter Pan. There are good guys and bad guys and little girls and little boys and flying and fighting and storytelling and and…
But I am not like Peter Pan. He sings, “I’ll never grow up….”
Not me, I wanna grow up. Not quickly, of course. But I wanna grow up.
Yesterday I did!
I jumped 3 cents and meaters. (Ed: centimeters)
That’s fun! It felt so good, I went to the park and took the big slide down for the first time! Yeah!
Me? Afraid? Nope. No Way.
I am big!
I grew up. Not like Peter Pan. We have nothing in common.
Oh, and my daddy was at the bottom ready to catch me.
