At Elijah’s soccer game today Joshua and I were playing our own game on an adjacent field. An older girl, probably about 10, kicked a ball fairly hard that hit Joshua and knocked him down. Joshua sulked for a couple of seconds and the girl ran up and said "I’m sorry. Are you OK?"
After a couple of more seconds, the girl ran off and Joshua said:
"I don’t like "ok" and "sorry". I don’t like those words. Those are baby words. I like cool stuff, not baby stuff. Everyone but me is a baby. That girl is a baby. Everyone is a big baby but not me …. or that boy over there. He’s not a baby, but just me and him."
