|Fear my powers of cuteness and latex!|
I, being the on-the-ball, pagan parent who takes advantage of every learning opportunity, jumped on that wave and surfed it.
So, I told bug that that was called "energy transfer," which, as I expected (this isn't my first rodeo, after all), got him curious. He asked about it and we talked about how people can give each other some of their power, or energy, and how that can help people do things, or change how they feel, or heal.
|Strangely, bug looks just like this after 6 candy bars.|
Then, reality crashed down: "THAT's all the power you have, mama?" Talk about a blow to the ego...
We talked about how not many people believe in powers and how that keeps us from being able to have bigger powers.
Do I think he got it? Kinda-ish.
|Now you know; and knowing... Hey! I'm not in G.I.Joe!|
But it's a good start, if I do say so myself.
