Make Believe - I Hope

This afternoon Aidan and Jackson were pretending to kill dogs. We know this because we heard Aidan say, "Come on, Jackson, let's go kill a dog!". And off Jackson runs to join the carnage.

I had him tell his Dad what he was pretending and he gleefully told his tale. We told him he can't kill dogs and he says, "If I have a real gun I can. I can shoot one with a real gun."

We told him if he did that he would go to jail and he says, "If you try to put me in jail and people try to tell me what to do I'll just kick and throw my babies at them."

Good to know he's got it all figured out.

P.S. Aidan is never mean to Lexi, ever! He's been known to curse at the psycho chihuahuas next door but those little ankle biters deserve it. I'm trying to convince myself you that he's not a budding serial killer. Go with me on this, okay?

My little one (4) has started in with the guns, shooting and dying with the bad guys. It is very disturbing but he is loving, gentle kid so I'm chalking it up to testosterone and "boys will be boys." But if I found one dead animal in my yard, I'd start watching "Dexter" so you can instill a code in him.

Boys are so...interesting! I have to keep reading so I know what to expect in a few years here...

I don't worry about a kid who carries his stuffed animals (not real ones, silly) around with him all the time, explaining things to them so patiently, buckling them into their car seats so they're safe on rides, etc like Aidan does. He wouldn't really hurt an animal.

My six year old wants to kill that 'damn' tom cat that runs around the neighborhood. Thanks to my hubby.

*I have an award for you!

It's crazy the things they pick up on. We just learned that this weekend.

And girls go through a lift up your shirt phase while boys go through their gun phase. Not sure which is worse. Hopefully both Aidan and Avery will outgrow their newfound hobbies - QUICKLY.
