I was reading with my son the other day. The story was about some knights and a dragon. In one of the pictures there was a knight with a patch over his eye.
Brian points to the picture, and in the best four year old logic he comes up with this:
B: Look Mama, he's a pirate because he only has one eye because he was running with a stick.
Me: Yes, sweetheart that's right.
I'm all about using everything at my disposal to keep my son's eyes right where they belong. Even if it means stretching the truth a bit. I might not have actually been lying when I said that. Maybe, just maybe, that knight/pirate WAS running with a stick.
What? It could happen.
