Aidan is obsessed with the story of David and Goliath. So much for keeping him from violence and death! HA!! The other day I was at the sink and he was at the kitchen bar coloring and he says to me out of nowhere…

“When someone is nasty to me I’m gonna throw a rock at their head!”

I calmly asked, “Why?” And then realized that he was wanting to be like Shepard boy/King David who I always tell him obeyed and served God. I always say “he was God’s little boy just like Aidan is God’s little boy.”
“Oh great” I thought, “How in the world do you explain to a 3 year old that while it was “OK” for David to slingshot Goliath down that the house rule still applies,
“We don’t throw rocks.”

Ah, motherhood.
