Little boys are miniature cavemen. If you ever wonder if the Neanderthal were real, watch a bunch of little boys at play.
Much like their ancestors, these little men are obsessed with fire....trying to set anything they can on fire.....they love to chase any living thing (including each other and their siblings) with large sticks while screaming....just like the Neanderthal running after a large dinosaur while yelling and waving a large weapon made from a gigantic stick. No fear.
This observation was made today while help to take my daughter's nursery class on an outing to the park. Needless to say, the boys were interested in totally different things as my previous paragraph states.
