Boys will be Boys... and Someday Dads too

It amazes me how boys and girls are so different, even at a very very young age. There is no question in my mind that they come that way. In my case, my boys are facinated by guns. I don't encourage this and we don't own any toy guns BUT anything and everything becomes a gun... blocks, sticks, balls, pillows, pretzels, you name it and it can and will be used as a gun. Elijah is the one that really gets creative but Sam is following suit. This morning I caught Sam shooting Josh with his SLEEVE, complete with sound effects. And he made sure that Josh put his "gun" away so that he could shoot him.

Another funny story from Elijah. I was cleaning up the dishes this morning and Elijah yelled at me to look at him and he was standing on a chair doing the Yoga Tree pose. I complemented him and said "You'll be a Yoga Master some day." He quickly replied "I don't want to be a Yoga Master, I want to be a daddy when I'm big like you, Mom." He got a big hug for that comment.

I thought you said you didn't encourage the gun behavior, yet in the movie you are saying, "go shoot your dad sam." did you want to explain that to me :)
