Our four year old, Timothy, got into an argument with his five year old cousin, Thomas, this weekend.
Evidently, they were playing hide-and-seek and Thomas decided he didn't want to be "it". So they argued back and forth about this until Timothy yells, "You're out!" - baseball and hide-and-seek are one and the same, you see.
Well, Thomas was insulted. He took a huge breath, jumped up in the air . . . and landed in a Kung Fu Panda pose.
Timothy, who hasn't seen King Fu Panda but who does have older brothers, took a huge breath, jumped up in the air . . . and landed in a boxer's stance.
So there they were . . . Kung Fu Panda and Rocky Balboa, standing three feet apart staring each other down.
And what was Jonathan, the-family-giggler-who-is-twelve-and-supposed-to-be-supervising, doing?
Rolling in the grass laughing his head off.
