Today at breakfast little kid was standing on his chair thrashing about.
"What are you doing?" I asked. "Sit down and eat breakfast."
"Well, stop fighting and eat breakfast."
"You know what I want to do, mumum?"
"Fight--babies? You want to fight babies?"
"Yeah! Babies like me. I'll fight 'em. Can you take me somewhere 'at babies fight?"
"Um...how about Karate? You want to start Karate classes? You really can't be fighting people, but they would teach you how to hit and kick and stuff."
"Yeah! Take me today. We go today, K mumum?"
I don't know if him taking Karate is a wonderful idea or a horrible idea, but it's the only place I could think of that lets babies fight. He's talked about it all day long, so I'm pretty much committed to signing him up for some baby fighting classes now.
I guess by default Big Kid will need self-defense classes now too.
