The Continuing Boys will be Boys series...

You do all know that boys will turn EVERYTHING into guns, right? Even if you have a gun-free, violence-free, peace & harmony household, your darling little, precious, innocent sons will know, somehow, seemingly by osmosis, how to chew their piece of toast into the silhouette of a gun. And they know how to shoot it.

On Sunday, Big Dude found an abandoned fishing pole at the beach and passed it off to Littlest Dude. The rest is history.

You're so creative in finding the right verses to go with your photos or vice versa. :)

Oh that is sooo true.

When I deliberately didn't use the word "gun", they started saying "blaster" and "shooter". Everything from grilled cheese sandwiches to toothbrushes become weapons.

As boy moms, we just learn to choose our battles. Sometimes... literally. ;)

Ain't that the truth! :) Even our kitchen bar stools have been guns once or twice. Love the colors and clarity on these photos!!

Oh my goodness, how true it is!! Breadsticks, french fries, stick pretzels... you name it, they'll turn it into a gun. In our house, nothing is out of the realm of possibility!

Thanks for this post, Susan... sometimes it's nice to see we're not alone :)

That's the absolute truth Susan. It just cracks me up what they find to use as "weapons." Gotta love those boys!
