At the park today, Bob ran up the slide backwards. He chased squirrels and his friend Mia. He roamed the sandbox with his gang of guys from school. He swung on the swing next to a little girl wearing a tiara and he called her "princess."
He climbed to the top of the jungle gym and called out,"Asajj Ventress is a dark Jedi! I will kill her!"
I called Bob to the bottom of the jungle gym ladder for a little conference. "Babe, it's not okay to talk about killing people."
"But Mama, I am protecting my friends. And it's pretend."
"I know but let's just not use that word. I know you're not supposed to say it at school either."
"So what should I say?"
"How about saying capture? Can you capture the bad guys?
Bob turned and climbed back to the top of the jungle gym and called out, "Asajj Ventress is a dark Jedi and I will capture her and then make her die so that she doesn't live anymore!"
I'm a problem solver, everyone.
