This morning I was playing "Mommy the Mad Cow" where I chase the kids around and MOO angrily. Big Kid ran up to me looking genuinely pissed and punched me in the leg.
Ashley: WHAT?! Why the heck did you just punch me, Big Kid?
Big Kid: (loud and angry) BECAUSE YOU ARE A NASTY COW.
I know I shouldn't have but I had to laugh. Really hard.
Also, let me mention that Big Kid is learning how to be a real boy in this damn Jewish school of his. He is suddenly wanting to "smash" everyone and karate kick and stuff. Well, I taught him the karate kicking, but the rest of the "playful" (but painful) kicking, hitting, punching, slapping, aggressive play is all their fault.
I knew I should have kept him sheltered.
