Weapons of minor destruction

I bought flails for the boys yesterday.  Do you know what a flail is? It’s a weapon that has a ball with spikes attached to a handle by a chain.  It is sometimes mistakenly called a mace or a morning star.  Obviously our flails are soft like Nerf.  The question that begs to be asked is: Why would I buy my children more weapons?

Because we already own:

5 nerf-like swords

4 hard plastic swords

2 staffs that switch to spears

1 battle-ax

1 wooden sword

1 wooden dagger

4 adult-size plastic daggers

4 shields

3 inflatable swords

4 extendable light sabers

1 light-up light saber

3 soft throwing stars

Obviously I’m teaching my sons to defend a small castle.  Now it’s off to dig a moat and buy a few crossbows.

    For each penis rule, there must be a weapon. You needed a ball-busting ball chain thingy.

    Our six year old is right into knights etc at the moment and pirates and starwars and weapons…and I think it must be genetic. Nothing you can do but join the fun!

    *LOL* Because regardless of what you buy them they will turn it into a weapon….. hockey sticks … yup. Golf Clubs… yup. All have been banned from the backyard due to hitting. So it makes the nerf foam flails seem like a good option at this point.
