We have a problem...at first it was just a cute obsession...you could even say that we were a little proud...but now...we have a problem.
At home, P usually comes back with "I'm Collin Klein," anytime we call him Parker. Sometimes we give in (as in, "ok Collin Klein, please just put on your shirt," when we're running late), but usually we continue to call him Parker.
It is not only the name...Parker begins his day with K-State football highlight videos...I'm not kidding. He wakes up around 5:45 or 6:00, comes in our room, finds the ipad, and turns on youtube. He then takes it downstairs while I make breakfast and puts on his football helmet to pretend that he is playing along with the video. This is usually the only time I let him watch highlight videos, but sometimes he gets to watch them while I cook dinner too.
I'll admit, we secretly love that he loves K-State as much as we do, but I'm a little worried now. I'm not sure how to get Parker to be Parker again
Don't worry, while he is 'Collin Klein' and I am 'Chris Harper' for most situations, he does know his basketball from his football. He is always 'Rodney McGruder' and I am always 'Shane Southwell' when we play basketball. It just so happens that those names don't carry over to real life.
