So it wasn't surprising to me when a gun showed up on Erik's Christmas wish list this year -along with the exact gun he wanted, circled in an ad- so thoughtful!
"I thought we were just getting a gun for Isaac. When did this turn in to you getting a gun too?" I asked him one day.
"Well, when your dad and I take Isaac out shooting, I need a gun too." he said.
"My dad has lots of guns though. Can't you just borrow one of his?" I naively asked.
"Umm", he paused, thinking how he could bring this to my level of understanding- again, so thoughtful! "guns", he said, "are like tampons. You just don't share those things."
Hmmm. Well, I guess there's a lot I don't know about guns. But he's definitely no expert when it comes to tampons. They have to be one of the most shared items among the female population. :)
