The Big Bad Wolf

So while VF was sick she spent a fair amount of time watching cartoons.  Since Netflix has some Silly Symphonies on it right now, I took advantage and showed her some of the old ones from my childhood.  She saw the three little pigs, in three different short shows.  Of course the big bad wolf made a big impression.  During the first show while the wolf blowed down the stick house and the piggies ran she cried out "That wolf wants to eat those piggies!" "He's hungry." And when practical pig held the door to the brick house open she said "Over here, come in my house and be safe!"  So she was definitely getting the idea of the plot.

As with most things it then became a game.  Daddy or myself would play the wolf, and she would be the princess piggy running away to her room. While we blowed the door down she would hide. Well last night Daddy was the wolf, and she was hiding in her room.  JA was up on VF's bed just playing with her feet and socks.  The wolf came in and looked around, not finding VF though he went over to the bed and started to eat JA.  VF didn't waste any time, she leaped from her hiding spot crying out, "No not my Jovi! Not my baby sister!" She put her hands up by her face turning into a lion. "ROAR!" And that lion chased the wolf right out of there.

It's a pretty good time.  Meanwhile, VF isn't just pretending the princess part.  Aunt Alicia sent up a Sleeping Beauty dress for her, and she has worn it every day since.  Thanks Auntie. 

Finally, regarding her being ill, she has an ear infection. She is on antibiotics.  Of course it is between us having health insurances due to S switching jobs, and policies not being allowed to start mid month.  We ended up ahead though, because health insurance is $926 a month. And the Dr. visit, and medicine without insurance was only $100.  This whole health insurance thing is quite the racket, and it's pretty ridiculously priced.  Next year we will give Obamacare a try and see how it is priced for us.
