The other day while I was unloading the dishwasher, James grabbed a butter knife. Well, we all know what happens when my boys get a hold of sharp objects. So Matthew, understandably did not want James to be able to grab another knife. He gave him a stern talking to and then requested his crayons and a piece of paper. He drew a picture of James and then drew a circle around him and a line through it. He asked me to post it on the dishwasher so that James would know to not get into the dishwasher again. So far it's worked. Good thinking, Matthew!
The mess on the counter is the result of a really cute Halloween countdown that I made on a cookie sheet.
