The Knight and The Damsel in Distress
And here is my "Fearless?" Knight! His armor isn't shining yet - we're still working on that polish! But he is learning to be the "Defender of the Realm" and "Mommy's Chief Protector"! Pray for Daddy!
Now you are wondering how all this came about....it started with Ian's birthday! God bless whoever it was that gave him that sword for his birthday! (I inwardly groaned when I saw it come out of the package.) Then I outwardly groaned as his first action with his sword was to stab his beloved Mommy! SIDE NOTE: Isn't it amazing how GOD sets the difference between boys and girls and ingrains it into the very fibers of their beings - even before they are born?
Back to my story....I could see something had to change - how could my beloved son "stab" his Mommy? On Monday morning, I "knighted" him. Yesterday morning, Daddy gave him the box my new kitchen clock came in (I'll post a picture sometime). Then we were inspired with the idea of turning the box into a shield - as you can see. Isn't it great what you can amuse a 2 year with - empty box, black marker, and string! His "helmet" is his "Tio Frank hat" - that is exactly what Ian calls it! Tio Frank gave it to him for his birthday (to Mommy, it is the most precious of all his gifts that he received.)
