Again and again, I say it to myself, “I just love this stage of my children’s lives.” Four kids, ages (almost) six to ten. Crazy, silly, messy, and FUNNY! They are.
Recently, Little Man checked out a book about Star Wars droids. That night he was devouring it! Apparently he was filling his sisters in on all the details when he shared that one of them shoots slugs from his chest. Not knowing that slugs are also bullets, he was imagining the slug shooter shooting little slimy, snail-like creatures out of his chest. Think about it; this is reasonable coming from a movie that includes the likes of Jabba the Hut, right? He and his sisters had a great laugh.
The next day they were discussing the anomaly when Bubba offered a suggestion: They should also have a droid that shoots salt. The slug shooter and the salt shooter could duel and see who wins.
I’m so glad I overheard that!
