Is this Normal?

I bought a 12-pack of AA batteries the other day and in about 20 minutes Henry had all the batteries spoken for. It was like Christmas for him with all his toys functional: his RC car, his helicopter and his Incredibles gun. He was so excited and kept saying, "Thank you, Mommy, for fixing my toys!" Later that evening, he suited up with Addy's swim googles and his red rubber boots and took off outside to torment the dog we are taking care of. He was chasing it all over the yard and shooting it. He couldn't see well through the goggles and said, "Where's the dog? I need to kill!" Man, I'm hoping this stuff gets out of his system now or he'll end up like Gaston on Beauty and the Beast. Here are some of the lyrics to my favorite Disney song:
No one's slick as Gaston

No one's quick as Gaston

No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston

For there's no man in town half as manly

My what a guy, that Gaston

…No one fights like Gaston

Douses lights like Gaston

In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston

For there's no one as burly and brawny

As you see I've got biceps to spare

Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny

And ev'ry last inch of me's covered with hair

No one hits like Gaston

Matches wits like Gaston

In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston

I'm especially good at expectorating (Ptooey!)

Ten points for Gaston!

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs

Ev'ry morning to help me get large

And now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs

So I'm roughly the size of a barge

No one shoots like Gaston

Makes those beauts like Gaston

Then goes tromping around wearing boots like Gaston

I use antlers in all of my decorating…

That is totally normal. He fits in great with our family. I wish I could have played that game with him.
