Today's "deep thoughts" from Little Man
LM: Mom, are bad guys real?
LM: Who are the bad guys? Policeman and stuff like that?
Me: No. Policemen are the good guys. They try to protect us from the bad guys.
LM: But, they have guns and swords.
Me: Yes, but the bad guys want to hurt us. The policemen have guns so they can protect us from the bad guys.
LM: (silence) OOhh, so the guns and swords don't want to hurt us?
WeaverDad is so proud that his 4-year old gets that the guns and swords aren't what hurts us - it's the bad guys.
