Knight in Shining Armor

What can I say? Micah is ALL boy. I can handle this for the most part, but I'm not so sure about this whole "fighting intuition". Everything and I mean EVERYTHING turns into a sword, gun, or slingshot (because his favorite Biblical story is David and Goliath). I have to be ready at all times or I might just get hit or tackled. The other night Paul and I were play fighting in the kitchen and the next thing we know Micah runs over to Paul with a serious face and hits AND kicks him. We had to laugh as we realized that he was just trying to protect his Momma! I'm glad to have him on my side, but it also has been a challenge to teach him to control these natural protection instincts.

Since he is all boy, it should be no surprise that he loves to dress up as a soldier. I like to call him my "knight in shining armor"-even though most of the time he is actually fighting me :) It also has been a great way to teach him about the Fruits of the Spirit...kind of funny though when he asks me where his "helmet of salvation" is. Oh how I love my boy!
And of course a kiss from the knight is a must!
