Up, up & away

Assuming this is a boy thing - and 6 years old is about the right time for it to kick it.  Oscar requested an airplane this morning.  Seems harmless and kind of easy.  Not so fast - he wants an airplane with smoke & flames careening through the sky.  Um, a bit disturbing.  But put into context with, let's say WWII illustrations of fighter planes, it's not a troubling idea.  I show him a picture of a Soviet plane that I googled..."Yes!  Just like that."  Phew.  Of course, now I am wondering where he saw an image similar to this.  I am not a war movie buff and can't recall taking Oscar to any photography exhibits where he'd get such an idea.  Oh well - chalking it up to all of those other behaviors that seem to seep in via osmosis as part of childhood development or some genetic imprinting phenomenon.  Happy Thursday!  xoxo
