Boys and their tendencies...

First, I must admit, I haven't bought any type of gun, but a water gun, for my boys.  I didn't grow up around guns; the only memories I have of guns are--- a tragic death in our youth group and the antique rifle that sat on the base of our shelves in our living room while growing up ---a discussion piece, for sure, while my dad talked with any guy that I might have the potential of dating.  So, this year at the beginning of the school year, Mark, my 7 year old, made this...a gun from a pencil and a glue stick.  Boys will be boys for sure!!

i had mixed feelings about guns and swords too when i first had boys...i was like "my boys will NEVER play w/those things" then it dawned on me ....girls play pretend...this is how the boys do it...they are warriors and girl's play princesses!! i've since had my fair share of sword fights haha

love boys being boys!!

Before my son was old enough to know what guns were, someone told me that you can keep guns away from them but then they will eat their cookie until is resembles a gun! So true...boys will be boys!

That's funny, Nick will also makes a "shooter" , as he calls it, out of anything. Usually it is a fork and a knife at a restaurant or a paper towel roll. Both boys could outfit the entire U.S. Army with their collection of Nerf guns. Even though our guns are always in the safe, i stress gun safety every chance i get.
