Last night's bedtime conversation with Bug:
B-"What would happen if I bit Boo's arm off?"
M-"Well, that would hurt him a lot and then you'd have to help him with lots of stuff since he'd only have one arm to use." (Lame answer, but that's not one of the "talks to have with your children" answers that I already have planned out!)
B-"Could he die?"
M-"Yes, he could if he lost enough blood. I guess it would depend on how quick we got him to the hospital."
Keeping in mind this is my very sweet-tempered, gentle-natured, non-aggressive son (he's much more likely to be bitten than do the biting), after a few moments of silence I thought to continue, "Why do you ask?"
B-"Because I love him so much that sometimes I just want to bite his arm off!"
Hmm...didn't see that one coming!
I do often tell Bug "I love you to pieces." I wonder if this is what he pictures when I say that? I think I'm gonna have to find a new way of expressing myself!
