Gaming in a Galaxy far far away (Star Wars Saga PS3)

Recently we have started venturing into letting Kai play video games with us.
I started with Mario Bros 3 on the original Nintendo.
She likes it and isn't too bad at it but she wants to play games like HB and I do.
We generally play games like Dante's Inferno, Diablo, Borderlands or something of that ilk. SO definitely not games you want a small child playing.
So I introduced her to the New Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong on the Wii.

Unfortunately she's having some difficulties with the sideways nunchuk even though we found her a smaller pink one to use. 
Most of the time I put her in a bubble in Mario Bros and have her float behind me :)
She gets frustrated with that after a while though and wants to actually play. 

Thus leading us to trying out Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga on our PS3. 
(I know we have too many game systems) 
We introduced Kai to the awesomeness that is Star Wars when she was freshly hatched lol 
So she already loves just about everything Star Wars especially the Ewoks (so CUTE)
Any-who she seems to really like the Lego Star Wars but she likes watching HB and I playing it. 
I think right now she looks for reasons to say its too hard just so she can watch us play it lol

I have to say that we are really enjoying the game and its awesome kid friendly fun!
There are even some cute funny little clips along with the game play. This is the first Lego game we have tried out and we are very impressed with it.
I can say for sure that we will be getting some of the other Lego games for us to play as a family. 

So we highly recommend the Lego video games for younger kiddos.

Spiders do what?

So Kai came home from 4k the other day talking 100 miles a minute about her afternoon at school. All the usual stuff, playing with her friends, snack time, her teacher Miss Amanda. 

Then out of no where she says "I learned about Lady Bugs, Crickets, Spiders and other little critters! Spiders are so COOL!"
That made me stop because just the day before she called Spiders "Creepy little things" and now they're cool?
What? O.o
I absolutely HATE spiders. They are my top phobia bar none.

So I turned her and said "What? How are they so cool?"
She stops dancing and says " Because they live webs! And they make their homes with their butts!"
Me "They use their whole butts?"
Kai "No not their whole butts. Their hhoollee (she sounded it out) butts"
She started putting her pointer and thumbs together to make a tiny hole.
"They do it with tiny hole butts"
Me "Are you sure they don't use their whole butts?"
She looks at me like I'm slow "Nooo Mommy. They use their tiny hole butts"

I finally get what she's trying to say and start to giggle.
"Do you mean they use tiny butt holes to make their webs?"
Her eyes get really wide and she starts bouncing "YES! They use tiny BUTT HOLES to make their webs!"
With each bounce after that she yells "Tiny Butt Holes!! Tiny Spider Butt HOLES!"
HB and I died right there bahahahaha

Little kids come out with the funniest stuff.
