Just what is it with boys and swords?

During a recent trip to the department store in search of tissue paper, I made the mistake of cutting through the Halloween aisle. One glimpse at all that plastic weaponry and Noah was smitten. Before my very eyes, my child transformed into some sort of ninja/ brave-knight-from-days-of-yore mutation. Observe the ready stance. The steely gaze.

Sigh…praise the Lord it was a slow day at W*lmart.

    Having three boys, I understand! Mine could make weapons out of anything — I had to hide empty wrapping paper tubes for a while.

    Diane, your boy is going to be (already is) a very handsome young man! You're going to have lots of girls coming around to your house little lady…so be prepared…cause time sure does fly!

    He looks so much like a young Will Smith!

    If it weren't a replica I am sure he would have found something else to make into a sword, or weapon…it's the "y" chromosome that can make them take a Q-tip and fight with it! At least he was having fun SHOPPING! LOL!

    aww, thanks beth☺

    holly… umm, no. was not even tempted in the slightest. i really just do *not* get the fascination with weaponry, lol.

    barbara… when i only had girls i was adamantly anti-weapon. i swore i would never have any toys guns or swords or anything like that in my home. then i had a boy. he was making guns and swords out of sticks, duplos, his breakfast toast for crying out loud! i guess i knew when i was licked;)

    yaya… thank you so much honey♥ and since i had absolutely nothing to do with his handsomeness, i can say that i agree with your opinion, wholeheartedly;)

    mamaporuski… isn't that the truth. i just cringe when i think of how smug i was about these things when i had a house full of girls *blush*

    You do know it's the *God gene*, don't you? God made little boys to be warriors ~ defenders of the Faith, protectors of the innocent & vunerable, defenders of hearth & home. It's hard wired into them. Thank God he is growing into the sort of man God had in mind when he first made little boys! ☺

    That is a boy for you! When Billy was little he always had two holes in the back of his underwear. That is because his 'ninja turtle swords' had to be put back there like Raphael did! Now at 23 we still tease him about that ;)

    Oh don't even get me started on swords. LOL. My third son, John, broke both arms. Both. Yes. At one time. He was in 2nd grade and tried to swing out of a tree holding to a rope with ONLY ONE HAND. Why? Because, as he put it so valiantly through the tears, "I couldn't let go of my sword." Boys and swords…
