Sam and Gregory were over playing Lego's today and as a treat I let them watch a movie, "Crocodile Dundee." We reach the part of the movie where Crocodile Dundee is rescuing the girl from the croc that is attacking her, by pulling her into the water by the canteen strap that is around her neck, and Gregory's eyes are glued to the scene. Dundee kills the alligator and takes the girl into his arms as she crys with fear and relief. Gregory's eyes never leave the tv and in a quiet, very serious voice he says, "I am him."


He wasn't speaking to anyone but himself and the tone in his voice made me realize he was totally identifying with this character. All of Gregory's play acting revolves around protecting and rescuing people, he has a very tender caring heart. It will be interesting to see what God does with this little boy.
