Cole is obsessed with Titanic for the second time in his life. Some of you might remember the first go round, from Clean&Simple Scrapbooking, The Sequel:
Granted, he had other epic disasters lumped into his 2004 focus, but the granddaddy of them all was Titanic. And now it's come back around for a reunion tour.
It shows up everywhere. In books:
On numerous pieces of paper:
And now, on my dining room/scrap room table:
He works night…and day.
Bazzill Basics Cardstock—now with more ship building power!
And to top it off, Cole has decided he wants to have a giant inflatable Titanic for his birthday this year. He knows those things aren't cheap to rent, and he also knows it's somewhat of a morbid concept. Nevertheless, this weekend set out to create a PowerPoint presentation entitled, "101 Reasons You Should Get Me a Titanic Slide." He said I could share a few of the slides with you.
I don't know, Cole. A trip to Branson would be pretty rad.
I just love this kid. With his persistence and persuasiveness, he's either going to become an insanely wealthy prosecutor, or the most successful QVC hawker the world has ever seen.
Cole and I watched "Titanic" the movie together yesterday. It was his idea to cap off a weekend of ship building. I'd planned a Valentine's Day full of errands and what not, but instead I just sat with Cole and watched all three hours.
I got choked up a number of times, as the reality of the Titanic was that it was a tragedy of unimaginable proportion. I asked Cole what it was about the Titanic that so enraptured him. He answered, "Mom, I'm like you…when I'm into something, I need to know everything about it."
And there you have it.
Here's to whatever floats your boat and the passion that goes along with it.
Note: I'm sure none of you are thinking he got the idea of "SAILOR" language from me.
