He’s Too Young For That!
It has been brought to my attention that perhaps I’m allowing Noble to do things that are outside of his age. Granted, I did stupidly teach Noble how to light a candle using a child proof lighter. And recently I thought it would be alright for Noble to help me use an axe to cut kindling. But when he asked if he could bash a watermelon in with a hammer, what was I supposed to do? How do you say “no” to something that awesome?! When was I ever gonna hear him make that request again? My own son had a Gallagher moment! Sure, it meant that we weren’t gonna eat the watermelon. But the sacrifice was worth it!
At least I promoted eye safety. Give me a little credit….before you take my kids away.
