Man of the house.
For one week Peter was king. His father told him that while he was away, he would be the man of the house. He was sure to lock the doors, put the seat down, brush his teeth and defeat every villain in all of his video games. There really was no better man to do the job. He even emptied the dishwasher! As Chris returned from his trip, Peter was reluctant to step down from his post, but easily fell back into the roll of second in charge. Responsibility can be exhausting. I sometimes forget that some day, this little man will be in charge and we will look to him for answers. In his mother’s eyes, this miracle in the making has great potential despite the fact that he still hasn’t mastered beyond the sevens of the times tables. After all, we’re all still a work in progress.

I sure hope Pete can beat a guy in s skort with slippers regardless the size of his opponent's sword.
