Mr. Tough Man?

My boy loves guns.  And for the record, we don't even have toy guns in the house.  Yet some days it seems like he turns everything he sees becomes something he can point and shoot with.  When we go to a friend's house who has toy guns, he finds the gun and is then broken-hearted when we have to leave it.  Yet I can't bring myself to buy him his own toy gun yet since I'm not sure he can understand the "we don't point it at people" rule.

He's a tough one, our Connor - ALL BOY.

Or is he?

Yesterday I got him up from his nap, and this is what I saw in his crib...

Isn't it so cute how he put his bears on his pillow and tucked them in??

And then, last night while Ben and I were watching TV and the girls were at a party, Connor was playing with a couple of the girls' toy horses.  After a few minutes he went into the bathroom, got Kelsey's hairbrush, and came out to brush the horses' hair.

Ben was absolutely disgusted.

I laughed.

Yep, that's my tough boy.

P.S. He also plays with Barbie mermaids in the bathtub...

LOL!! He's going to make a good (tough!) daddy one day :)

I think Ben played with some of Kristi's dolls when he was that age. To a toddler, a toy is a gender involved.

If he loves guns now, wait until you find your plastic hangers destroyed because they make excellent bows, guns, crossbows, etc. Jared is still in that phase. Well come to think of it, Mike is still in that phase as well.
