Baby Fights

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!"

"Fight--babies? You want to fight babies?"

"Yeah! Babies like me. I'll fight 'em. Can you take me somewhere 'at babies fight?"

" 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.

My older 2, are in karate. The youngest refuses to go, I am thinking because he knows I will expect more of him and use his teachers as a displine (as in I will tell so 'n so at Karate about how your acting--no one likes that) for some reason they get scared and act right. Either way my point is we love karate and ours starts at 3. It's fun for them...and breaks the bank for me but it's worth it in the long run.

You could start a baby fight club for him. First rule of fight club...don't talk about fight club. Second rule of fight club...all diapers must be changed before the fight starts.

My husband and some of his friends have joked for years about starting "Baby Fight Club".

Wait.... I just broke the first rule of Baby Fight Club.

I think the martial arts, taught by the right person, are great for kids like LK. They shouldn't just teach kicking and punching, but when to kick and punch.

I think the whole Ashley family is gonna need self-defense classes.

OOOHHH I think Karate is just what little kid need. Big kid wont need it because little kid would be in HUGE BIG trouble if he uses it out side of class. Also they are big on respecting and listen to mom, dad and teacher.

I say quick sign him up.

Lin said...

ha ha...I agree with Katie on the baby fight club.

Oh yeah, if Little Kid takes karate Big Kid has to be signed up by default. He has to learn the defensive moves.
