As Told in the Book of Aidan

The boys and I were telling stories tonight, and Dane made up a very elaborate tale involving snakes and swords and "a big gang of my friends all grown up."

For the first time, Aidan, my not-quite-three-year-old, decided he had a story of his own.  Here's how it went:

"Once upon a time Jesus made a baby go under the water and then the mommy got the baby out of the water.  Then the king gave the baby a bare butt spanking and the baby ran away.  And then there were two bad guys with swords.  Then he went under the water and went on a ship."

Should this worry me?  Does anyone else's two year old make up stories that do not involve cute farm animals or Winnie the Pooh?  For a very brief second when he started I thought he was trying to tell me about Moses. 

Guess not.

I've spent far too much time reading through your blog today. It's been endlessly entertaining.
