Kids, commandments and more

Kids are so funny. Today Windsyr and Staten were happily playing along when she matter of factly informed him in whatever game they were playing that she was going to kill him. Well before I had time to correct her extremity, Staten retorted with: "You can't kill me because it's not OK to kill people." Windsyr said, "But we kill bad guys." Staten said: "No, we don't kill them. We just protect ourselves from them, because one of the ten commandments says: Thee shall not kill."

Cairo has taken to shattering glass. One big glass dish out of the dishwasher last night, and a glass candle holder at Bath and Body Works this morning. He has hit the age of destruction and we are gearing ourselves up for the endless stream of messes, mishaps, and mischief. It is so interesting to watch his developing personality and try to figure out what he's going to be like. He is intense and observant and has much less to say than our other children did at his age, although when he chooses to be verbal, he's learned to be heard. He is an excellent sword fighter and makes us all laugh so hard at how he can hold his own in any duel.
