Scissors are for paper only!
I don't know how many times I have told my preschoolers this! When they are scissor-sword fighting, I say "remember, scissors are for paper only". When they are trying to give themselves a hair cut, I say "Ah- Oh, scissors are for paper only".
I guess you can never be too old to hear that reminder! Last night, Lexie was in the office, updating her blog and playing on the computer. She was playing with scissors and magnets. Two magnets were stuck together, and Loo used the "grown-up scissors" to try to cut them apart. She succeeded in getting them apart. What a relief. (sarcasm). She also succeeded in cutting the tip of her finger off!
Jason and I were at Smith's when we got a frantic phone call from Loo telling us that she cut her finger really bad and she thinks she can see the bone. We left our grocery cart and took off. (sorry Smith's workers, but it was an emergency)
It was bleeding pretty good. We ended up taking her to urgent care. They put a pressure wrap on it so that the bleeding would stop. They weren't able to do stitches. There wasn't really skin to put together and sew. It was more like a big deep deep whole.
