I've posted stories of my little browncoat before, but I just had another one to add. And this thread title just seemed to fit better.

Hubby took my five year old shopping for T-Ball equipment on Saturday in my car. My son knows exactly which CDs are in my player even better than I do.

They sat in the car for a 45 minute drive and hubby came home that night complaining.

"He made me play that stupid 'Take my Land' song about fifty million times. It's ALL we listened to for the entire drive!!!!"

In walks my five year old, "Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand...You can't take the sky from me..."

Yay for 'Little Browncoats'!

Heh. My 3-year-old loves the fruity oaty bar commercial. Every night she'll come over to me when I'm on the computer and demand "poopybars... pease!"

She also knows Hero of Canton and the theme song...

Some of you heard about my trip to the principal's office courtesy of my 8 year old Browncoat son.
Seems he called one of his classmates a "backbirth" and told both the classmate AND the principal,
"My mom can kill you with her brain."

Um. The principal was not a Browncoat and needless to say, not amused!

"Do not go gentle into that good night....
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. . ."
--Dylan Thomas

Though my soul may set in darkness
It will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
To be fearful of the night.

I sing the song to my baby when I put him down for the night, and he always does a double take when he hears it on the DVD.

I've even written a few extra verses to stretch it out on nights he doesn't go down right away. They're not good, but he seems to like them.

Take my faith,
Kill my belief,
Make me live just like a thief
True to mine I'll still be
You can't take the sky from me.

Take my memories,
Taint my past,
Leave me nothing that will last,
It's the future that I see,
You can't take the sky from me.

Whoohoo! Browncoat parents unite! My 12 year old daughter went into a serious period of mourning when we saw you know what in the BDM. The six year old has taken to calling the monkeybars at school "serenity" and maintains that he is Mal and the rest of his kindergarten class is his crew.

funny thing is they seem to go with it.

It is a scary thing to see a six year old with charisma.

Vaughn, I actually like your additional verses. Let's face it, the original song is pretty but nothing spectacular. We just love it because... well, because it's attached to that pretty show we love so well. Your verses are a good addition.

Agreed... they're very much in the spirit of the show. And they scan and rhyme, sorta, if you squish them here and there...

I don't disagree on any particular point.

I've not fully converted mine yet. My 15 year old daughter did go see Slither with me. My 10 year old likes to watch the episodes with us, but he's not convinced yet of the power they possess. I'm still workin' him.

Vaughn, lovely additions to the song.

Heh, my car broke down the other day and I had to go rescue my wife and kids. Looks like it's the head gasket :(

When explaining that if it is more than that, I said we might need to get a new car.

Further cuteness...

My 6 year old daughter, who has a Kaylee fixation, has now taken on some of the lovely engineer's personality and mannerisms.

In particular, whenever "explaining" something to someone, or asking for something, she will point and announce, "I'm pointin' right at it."

She even gets the wide-eyed, "are you stupid or something," expression on her face.

I think I've created a monster. I'm just waiting on a note to come home from school.

I like to wear Eastern dress to church. Sometimes it's a heavily embroidered kaftan from Syria, sometimes it's salwar kameez from India, sometimes it's a lengha choli. This time I wore a pantsuit. Boring. But I did wear a pink flamingo pin with it. Mr. Grizwald commented approvingly that at least I wasn't dressing like a Companion for a change, but then our son chimed in with, "No, she's Badger today!" I said, "What?" And he said that Badger wears a flamingo pin. Which I have never noticed. Lil Sharp-Eyes sure did, though.

Oooh, I have a story!

My 5 1/2 year old daughter has never watched a whole episode of Firefly (some parts I'm not ready to explain yet), but I make her sit through the opening credits. I'm trying to teach her the song. She has an uncanny ability to remember characters, and for someone who has not watched the show, she can name all the characters as they're shown. Her favorites are Inara and Kaylee.

Today she had a friend over and as I was walking past her bedroom I hear them calling each other Kaylee and Inara! Then I hear my daughter refer to Captain Mal (I think it was one of her stuffed animals). I had to pop in and ask if Zoe and Wash were playing, too.

She also had me draw Kaylee, Inara, and River on her DoodleBear (to go with the pic of Serenity I drew on it ages ago).

Sorry for the long post!

Glad you did, Grizwald, cuz I'd missed the last part of this thread and I like the extra verses!

Great job, Vaughn!

Now I have more to sing when I'm walking around singing this at the top of my lungs and my family is lookin' at me all funny.

They like the song... just not my voice, it seems.


No little ones who love Firefly, but my 13 year old grandson will visit soon and I think "selective" episode viewing is in order.
I'll let you know, but I'll bet Mal will be his new hero before the summer is over.

"You hold. Hold 'til I get back." Mal

Aww! So much little Browncoat cuteness!!

I love the new verses, Vaughn! I'm gonna start singing them now. I sing them to my dog sometimes, because she has a bad ear infection that I have to treat every day and, believe it or not, she holds still better when I'm singing the themesong/Hero of Canton! And since she's around 69 pounds...that's good for me!

Your daughter's picture is absolutely adorable, Grizwald! It's totally becoming my desktop background!

Huzzah for the next generation!


Mine is an evil sugar high laugh! Bwahahahaha!
