Oy! Kids!

We did some hanging out with my nephew (4 1/2 y.o.) this past weekend. Here are some things we learned:

It is okay to catch and kill fish. It is even okay to run around screaming like a banshee in delight when said fish are caught. It’s okay to torture play with the dying fish in the bucket, giggling about “blood water.” But it is NOT okay to eat dead animals.

And:

A race is only a race if you are winning. Otherwise the race is called off. Make up a good sounding reason (such as “Oh… um… my pedal won’t turn.” “But your pedal is turning just fine now.” “Oh… um… Let’s Race!”) for stopping, regain your lead, and announce that the race is back on. Repeat as necessary.

These are important life lessons here people. Learn them. Use them.
