Do you hear that?

Natalie's latest obsession:

Natalie: Do you hear that? (Looks around with a concerned look on her face)
Melissa: What is it?
Natalie: It's Swiper the Sneaky Fox. No take my necklace Swiper! Swiper, noooo swiping! Swiper, noooo swiping! (Natalie holds her hand out in front of her to stop Swiper)

If you don't recognize what Natalie's talking about, good for you! I bet most of you do know though. =)

This is repeated about 15 times throughout the day, much to my dismay.

Hi Melissa,

This is so cute! And even I, without children, know about this one. It was fun to see you this christmas and meet your cute little girls. Mark and I have fun looking at your blog!

That darn swiper! Dora certainly is an influential figure in the lives of many preschoolers. Even Ben has become obssessed!

John, Jodie, Stila, & Alexa said...

LOL! That is awesome! Stila doesn't watch Dora, just "Yo Gabba Gabba" and "Blues Plues..."

Kasey said...

My kids say it all the time!

Holly said...
