Algebraic Equation

Ben + Afghan ÷ Scissors = Sad MomMom3

I should know better than to turn my back on a 2 year old, even for a second, for I know terrible and destructive things can, and will, happen. I take full responsibility for it though. I should have put the scissors up.

I had been crocheting dilligently the night before. I was in the homestretch. I was almost finished the project. Nothing like this has happened before. He honestly thought he was helping. He started crying when I cried, the poor thing. I should have put those darn scissors up!


Since Ben's "surgery" on my latest project I've been in a crochet slump. I still haven't brought myself to attempt re-construction. I did, however, finally bring myself to inspect the damage. It won't be impossible to fix. It's an afghan done in strips. One of the strips is beyond repair, but the other 2 that were damaged shouldn't be too difficult to fix. whew

Tears were shed, lessons were learned (on both sides). The scissors are safely hidden away on the highest shelf, where they belong, safe from adventurous little fingers. :)

  1. The positive side of this is that Ben used the scissors on the afghan and not Ben, right? I feel your pain: have had similar things happen with my almost 2-year-old niece. You literally turn your back for a second and disaster strikes.


I'd love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. I will try to respond asap. :)

I don't, however, love to hear from spammers so I've had to turn on comment moderation. My apologies if it takes a little while for your comment to show up.
