"Honey Pot, if you continue to wave it around like that, I'm going to have to take away your knife."
I would have explained about it being a butter knife and, quite frankly, the only thing keeping him busy while I made fresh salsa and prepared for our camping trip was him spending an hour "chopping" tomatoes, but she pretended not to hear me.
Fingers crossed that she assumed it was a toy. Then again, thinking I allow him to be a pretend gansta... that might actually be worse. I'm sure she's looking forward to the upcoming school year.
Upon suggestion from Julia (who also lets her kids play with knives), you can link up if you so choose to publicly display your Bad Mommy status on a weekly basis. C'mon, free yourself!
p.s./update: if you want to participate, don't worry about what day it is - I probably won't be diligent enough to put Bad Mommy Weekly up on the same day every week (because I'm bad) but I will also not put up another post for 2 or 3 days (because I'm bad).
