Armed with his new water gun, or squirt gun, whatever you want to call it, he is also outfitted with his goggles that he received last Christmas and his bug catching kit that he got recently. All his favorite things.
Once he got the water pistol and received admonishments from his Dad as to who or what could be shot with water and who or what could not, Sebastian went upstairs to his room to get the bug kit and goggles.
He obviously meant business.
I could hardly contain my joy at the sight of him as he was outfitted to go into the jungles of the courtyard outside his house. Anything that didn't move or did was fair game.
Here were some of the admonishments:
No shooting your sister in the face.
No shooting Scout, the dog, when he is in the house.
(Scout wisely stayed IN the house)
IF you shoot a bear, then this water gun is a tranquilizer gun and call
IF you shoot a bug, put it in your bug carrying case.
Off he went in search of.............a bear, of course!
With a name like Sebastian Woodrow, Seb as he is called by his sister, has a lot to live up to. He takes that very seriously too. With the most amazing imagination and inquiring mind, one never knows what he is going to say or do next.
When I said to him on Saturday morning, "Oh Sebastian, I'm so glad to be here to have breakfast with you", he quickly corrected me and said, "Grammy, it is brunch because we are having pancakes and tuna fish sandwiches". Luckily, I did not have to have a tuna fish sandwich after the pancake.
Then when he was outside mutilating the flowers and anything else that was not moving in the garden with the force of the water, he was singing. His father informed me that he was singing in the language that he has invented!
His creativity and imagination could give him the nickname of the Steven Spielberg of San Miguel. I so hope I live to see what he becomes later in life...........and that his imagination and intelligence is nurtured forever. At five years old, he IS a force to be reckoned with........
