Reilly came home from preschool yesterday and for the first time ever he started talking about guns. Oh great. They are talking about things they are afraid of in school – monsters are a recurring theme. Apparently one of Reilly’s classmates wants to kill the monsters with guns. So, he taught Reilly to do the same.
Not that you can prevent exposure to those kinds of things, but you do the best you can. He hasn’t seen any movies to my knowledge with guns – the Incredibles is awful for the first 15 minutes – so he hasn’t seen that yet. Anyway, I guess this is the first of many unwanted introductions that we don’t really have a say in. We just handle the after effects.
