Swank with the 'Pank

Aidan has started running around laughing and hitting people--that would be me and Lindsay--on the butt and saying "I did a 'pank!"

Clearly a case of Terrible Twoness, right? Wrong. If only it were that simple.

You see, Aidan's been following the NCAA hoops action pretty closely, including the huddles and sideline conversations with the prerequisite butt slapping, and this makes these incidents very ethically murky. Is Aidan defying us, or just emulating the Basketball Big Boys?

My mind-reading abilities only extend to very witty repartee that Aidan communicates to me telepathically to be passed on to his mother, so I really can't tell what's going on in his little noggin. Clearly, this is a crisis. A crisis brought on by the advent of March Madness. So an unavoidable one.

But still, we're so perplexed that we've taken to flipping a coin after every 'pank and acting according to the wisdom of the dime. Heads, we let Aidan's escapade go as part of the basketball lifestyle. Tails, we spank his. Seems to be working fine so far, although flipping that coin five or six times a minute really breaks up our day.
