Had my first real sword-fight with my son today, with those cardboard tubes you get inside rolls of wrapping paper. He's two. Not only that, he attacked me first. Very satisfying.

An lo the world gains another swashbuckler, hurrah! And the great thing is you can tell mummy that swordfighting helps her precious boy's hand-eye co-ordination development, reaction times, focus, balance and increases his damsel-rescuing abilities by a significant margin.

Your chum,

And I don't believe we can have too many of those.

Avec mes amities,


PS Mother approves of damsel-rescuing.

I came across the site for Talk Like a Pirate International Day, quite independently about a month ago - it's wonderful.
