We’re taking a break in our regularly scheduled #SmoresWeek festivities with a nod to Shark Week, you know, the week thousands sit around the television and watch Jaws and shows about men trying to get as close to sharks as possible without being eaten. Like it or not, it’s comes every year, and it’s huge! So, while I’d rather frolic on the beach fearlessly than hyperventilate wondering if the guy swimming with massive meat eaters will live to tell about it, Shark Week has no shortage of fans, including my kids.
Lately, my kids have become “besties” with Siri, and walk around the house with my iPad in fits of giggles as they ask ridiculous questions like, “Is the front door locked?” And then run to check it when Siri says it most definitely is. I smile that big happy-my-kids-are-getting-along motherly grin at their laugh out loud moments after issuing commands like, “Show me funny videos of kittens.” But this week? Oh, this week has been all about asking their new friend, “How big are sharks?” and “Show me videos of sharks eating people.” To which the latter I had to intervene. A little. Because then I turned on Discovery Channel and watched their little imaginations run wild.
