It doesn't measure up

Sam and Caleb have been playing a lot in the woods at the back of our house lately. A lot. Part of the reason I'm sure is that this is the only place they're allowed to play with sticks.
Tonight, we were all out in the backyard and Caleb and Sam were in the woods. Were. Caleb was heading toward us crying, Sam having poked him in the corner of his eye with a stick. Not a serious injury, and not purposeful either. Sam claimed "accident". I sternly told him how important it was that he stay well away from Caleb when he's playing with the stick. He said (very innocently, and also like he knew what he was talking about) that he "was like, 2 feet away from Caleb!" Brian then asked him how long the stick was. "4 feet." was his matter-of-fact response.

Sounds like now that Sam has mastered reading (at least for a 5-year-old) maybe you should move on to math.

Maybe he was choking up on the stick?

to get a nice solid swing? At Caleb.
