Last Monday, our family all lounged about on the back deck. Kaia and Ben ran around the yard while Mike and I watched. At one point Kaia started running around with a stick, pointing it at imaginary bears and saying "Pow! Pow! Kill!! Kill! Die!"
I asked her to refrain from pretending to kill things. She said... (ready? you're not)
"But we're farmers! We grow all our own fruits and vegetables, but if I don't go hunting, my family won't have protein!"
game, set, match.
The most I could do at this point was request that the words "die" and "kill" not be used, and that she better use the WHOLE bear.
