We have some Angry Bird pillows here. A small bird and small pig. And two large birds and a large pig. Can you guess who has the pigs? Our very own Sith Lord. But since Aidan idolizes Sean, he wanted a pig too. Being an awesome older brother, Sean gave Aidan the small pig.
They walk around the house with their pigs squealing and cooing. “Piggie!” “BIG PIGGIE!” “SMALL PIGGIE!” It’s a bit adorable.
Then I walked into the older boys’ room to hurry Sean along and heard the boys squealing with their pigs.
Sean: PIGGIE! Piggies are good! Birds are bad! We don’t like birds!
Aidan: No BIRDS!
Is he…? Is he teaching Aidan to like bad guys?
Me: WAIT! Are you teaching your baby brother to not like good guys and like bad guys?!
Me: No. No. We are the good guys. We like the birds AND the pigs.
Sean and Aidan: PIGGIE!
No, no. I will not have a Sith Lord training an apprentice.
Always two there are, no more, no less: a master and an apprentice.
Hell, no. I am not letting two sons go over to the dark side, much less one.
I need an intervention.
