Knights and Castles after Dinosaurs and Trucks

In fairness to my son, his interests seem to really be boyish stuff (despite loving Angelina Ballerina). And thankfully enough, Knights and Castles are something I was interested in so I didn't have to learn so much like I did with dinosaurs and trucks.

I loved knights, read all about Arthur's Knights of the Round Table and Camelot during my high school years. I have even fantasized myself as Sir Tristram's lady love (not that he was a faithful knight) just because he was my favorite of all. So right now, we're having a grand time and it tickles me pink teaching him about catapults and jousting and portcullis and moats. I do wonder though what movie I can let him watch so he'd have better appreciation of knights and castle life.

The slight downside to this is the fact that his interests are changing as he grows and I really wonder whether I can keep up with him. What if someday he asks me about things I really have no idea of, like creatine monohydrate powder and rocket science?

Oh, he's showing interests on planets and outer space too, which was another one of my fave reads before. I guess, for kids his age, it helps to have parents who were geeks.

And when I asked him who his lady love is... he said, "Mommy, you are my lady love. I love you so much, Mommy."

Sigh.

I really think i'd cry the day he tells me he has a crush on someone already.
