Boys, boys, boys . . . What are you thinking??!?

So I was upstairs getting ready this morning while both of my boys were downstairs. I THOUGHT that Adam was eating breakfast and I THOUGHT that Noah was watching Diego. Those thoughts were interrupted by a strange sound coming from the kitchen. They were sounds that a child eating breakfast and a child watching Diego wouldn't have been making so I was a bit perplexed. As I started down the stairs to investigate I yelled to Adam: "What are you guys doing?"


His answer? "Playing lightsabers."

As they came into view while I was still on the stairs, I saw what they were swinging at each other:
I'm not sure what I should be more bothered by - the fact that they were playing with my knives like they were toys, or the fact that neither of them seemed to understand why I had a problem with that.

Can somebody please explain to me why Adam goes into anxiety overdrive when something like a hangnail produces a microscopic speck of blood on the end of his finger, yet having his somewhat spastic little brother swinging a 7 inch butcher knife at his head doesn't seem to concern him at all?

HOLY CRAP!!!!! That's horrible. And it cracks me up. Sorry, I'm a bit bi-polar on this one.

What's that snake looking thing a couple posts back??!?

Your 5 brothers survived such things as do most boys. However, I do believe you would see Adam's reaction if Noah made contact.

(What kind of mother are you? Letting your little boys have access to "knife" sabers) LOL.

Yikes. That makes me shudder just thinking about it, but that sounds just like typical little boys.

I'm glad you thought to investigate.
