I'd listen to her if I were you.

So we went up to BigBabyBrother's house yesterday for "second Christmas" (sort of like how Hobbits have second breakfast), after they got back from spending Christmas with my parents in Colorado.

My delight at receiving Brave on Blu-ray was exceeded only by that of ShinyHappyNiece (age 3), who (a) loudly and excitedly announced what it was before I could even start opening it, (b) repeatedly declared "I'm gonna watch it with you, Auntie Val!" (no, this has not yet occurred; maybe next time, if it's still her obsession by then), and (c) at random points throughout the day, addressed a remarkably fierce "DON'T KILL MY MAMA! SHE'S NOT A BEAR!" to nobody in particular.

I am DED OF CUTE. And resisting the urge to make a toy bow appear at their house prior to the advent of playing-outside weather. After the reports of the "mini football nailing the TV" incident, I'm pretty sure such a purchase would... not go over well with Mama and Daddy. Awfully tempting, though. :-)

I'm wondering if there will be an upsurge in women's archery.

I saw this on Tumblr earlier:

So I'm thinking the answer is yes. :-)

I've been seeing 2012 called "the Year of the Archer" quite a bit, usually with those two cited alongside Hawkeye and maybe Oliver Queen, plus occasionally Kíli, OUAT's Snow White, and/or various video game characters.

my nieces had to take "bathroom breaks" during some scary bits though. :)

I wasn't sure whether they would have shown it to SHN, for exactly that reason, but apparently she's totally fine with it. It probably shouldn't surprise me too much; we babysat her last NYE, and she wore us out playing "come chase me, monster!" :-)

Awesome! Even if I'd personally have to replace (?) with Queen Susan of Narnia. :)

Someone from a video game, I think.

And me too! :-) I've seen Susan included in quite a number of "look at all the archers!" posts that weren't limited to 2012.
