This may sound mean of me but I don't really see the point in Dexter having a "gun". It is bad enough that he likes to "shoot" things by making noises but does he need to be encouraged? When he got his stitches, the very masculine ER Doctor handed him a syringe container (minus the needle) and called it a water gun. It wouldn't be very nice of me to call and thank him for what he thought was a kind gesture because it has propelled him into a world of shooting and fantasy. He now calls out for his "shooter gun". I quickly correct him and say its a water shooter. Whatever!
I can count on one hand the amount of items that Dexter has begged me for. These include Elmo anything, Toy Story everything (including a fully operational Buzz wall clock), a baby (which HELLO I gave him!) and now guns. Oh lordy how things have changed. My sweet carefree 2 year old is morphing into GI Joe well before I had expected it.
