At the beginning of the week, Matt told us that he and some boys had gotten in trouble during outside play time at pre-school. They were playing and tackling each other and the teacher told them to stop and not to let her see them tackling again. Matt learned his lesson.........only it wasn't the lesson the teacher meant to teach.
Last night at supper, Matt was telling us about playing with a couple of friends on Friday. I asked him what they played and he said they were tackling each other. I said, "I thought the teacher said she didn't want to see y'all tackling each other again.". Matt said, "We were playing behind the slides so she wouldn't see us.". Matt, we need to talk.
Matt is a literalist. He takes you at your word and does exactly what you say, so you better say it right! One Sunday morning at church he was pretending he was Iron Man when we got there. I told him not to be Iron Man when he went to Sunday School. He didn't. He was Wolverine! Now I tell him not to be any super hero.
