I was coming out of the bathroom today & he yells out, "Mumma, I know how soldiers say "Z""
As he is always rearranging words into how he thinks soldiers say something I was prepared for something out there & wacky, but he triumphantly said, "Zulu!"
I was floored! That is how you say Z in soldier talk when relaying a transmission. The radio was off & there was no movie on. I walked out of the bedroom & he is stretched out in front of the book case reading an old copy of the Soldiers Manual of Common Tasks. I didn't know we still had one, much less on on our book case.
"I'm going to look at bombs next."I'm really not sure what we're raising. He loves his Bible stories & is always bringing me his theological questions & observations which are usually astute. But his overriding passion & the theme & source of all of his games are war & soldiering & getting to be a grown up as fast as he can.
