Watch out for those peacocks!

This morning Isaiah and Katie were playing and I overheard Isaiah say, "And you can't come in here because there are scary animals that will make you bleed, like . . . peacocks!"

Adam and I burst out laughing at the idea of a big, bad peacock coming after us. Isaiah wasn't so amused and insisted that the big Momma Peacock was going to peck us with her beak (and that she had fire in her wings that she was throwing at us).

It's occuring to me that my kids are sounding a bit violent, but really it's not as bad as it sounds. Katie's "nunchucks" turned out to be Wii remote nunchucks, and Isaiah wasn't intending to actually hurt anyone, just cause drama in the pretend play (I used to do that as a kid, but I was always dying and coming back to life--"oh, be sad, cry, I'm dead, oh! wait I'm really alive!" etc.). And it's just as cute to see the kids be sweet with each other, but not as quotable for the blog, for sure . . .

Don't you just love it when kids use their imaginations? They come up with the most amazing (and sometimes weird) things! I was soooo happy when my kids actually started playing together. It's much more fun to eavesdrop on them! :D
