I tried to trace this line of conversation back to it’s origin but was totally unsuccessful. For some reason or another Aubrey and I ended up talking about guns….like I said, no idea where this came from.
Me: Guns are very dangerous and only adults can touch them.
Aubrey: Yeah just boys.
Me: NO. No kids. If you ever see a kid touching a gun you RUN and tell a grown up. (I was an ER nurse y’all, I’ve seen bad stuff.)
Aubrey: Yeah, just grown ups. Are guns more dangerous than bears?
Me: Yes. (I mean how likely is it she’s going to run into a grizzly in Mt Pleasant???) Guns are more dangerous than fire. (The fireman came to her school and since then she’s all about stop, dropping and rolling.)
Aubrey: Yeah, guns are more dangerous than bears on fire. Right, Momma?
