When a four-year-old boy has his favorite Lego sword taken away because he's been "battacking" the dog and his brothers and his parents, make sure he doesn't see where it's been stashed. It's possible, he'll pretend he doesn't miss the sword for a day or two, then when you least expect it...
...curious noises are heard coming from his room, which is located above the office where his mother sits quietly writing. Not terrible noises... just curious.
The noises cease and the four-year-old boy casually enters the office and ponders aloud, "I wish I could fly," as he sighs.
His mother smiles and replies sympathetically, "I wish I could fly sometimes too, honey."
An hour later, the mother makes one of her routine patrols of the house, picking up toys to be returned to their respective bins while dusting banisters with her forearms as she motors up the stairs.
Upon entering the four-year-old boy's closet, the mother discovers a project has been underway. A project that had not been approved because it would have most likely resulted in severe injury or death.
Perched on the very top shelf of his closet, was exactly where the four-year-old's father had stashed the sword... for safekeeping.
There were no injuries or deaths, and the boy and his sword have been reunited. The mother had cocktail hour early that day.
