|Very shiny. We found kitty prints on the wrap. Thomas liked it, too!|

That kid is totally gun obsessed. When we go to the store to buy stuff with allowance money, Chy always wants to buy another gun. Or a lego set, if I convince him that he doesn't need another gun. I think we need to plan a full out nerf war with all the cousins. Or my entire neighborhood.

Ah, well, at least the little dude is easy to please. Nerf, bionicle, lego, jackets and pants and boots with cool zippers, anything shaped like a gun. He spent 4 hours one weekend building a realistic-shaped gun out of legos.
I do worry a little about this gun obsession, but I don't think that I can quell it by banning them. And there is a strangely proud moment as a mom when your 8 year old asks you to wait behind him for a moment so that he can check the area for zombies, then walks to the corner and quick checks around, holding his gun two handed like a real movie-hero guy.
