Happy birthday to my little man, who is no longer so little. Going from 6 to 7 seems like such a big transition. It’s like he is no longer a small child, he can just be referred to as a child. Zyler woke up today to a new crystal lamp from Jenn, and a sick new scooter! He is already scooting around the house, hasn’t put it down yet. Now before his friends get here for the birthday party this afternoon there is a new birthday tradition in the Onion house. I got Zyler to explain his 5 favourite books- and additionally his favourite movies- to share with all of you. If you’d like to see how his favourites have changed you can see his picks from last year here. So, Zyler, what do you love?
I like the man with no pants! And Captain Underpants has two sidekicks who always chase after him.
There’s a giant robot and he looks like a mouse like all the other mouses. They go on adventures…
That is not a Good Idea by Mo Willems
All the chicks keep saying “that is not a good idea”. The wolf tries to trick the momma duck, but the momma duck actually tricks the wolf.
Dragon Masters by Tracey West
They have dragons! And there’s the kids that are called Dragon Masters and they can control dragons!
Because the crayons are funny. And, um, Duncan always leaves them behind or doesn’t take care of them, so then they quit.
And, what about your favourite movies?
I like the music! They have Branch and Poppy happy at the end.
They get the bad guys, then they win!
Because video games are in it (obviously). Video games come to life!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
They have Jedi in it, that have lightsabres, that can go through anything. Finn is my favourite guy!
I liked when Spider-Man beated the bad guy. And the movie was a little bit funny.
Happy Birthday Zyler-Roque!
