russ & i went on a date last saturday night and didn't return until about midnight.
chandler was watching for us (instead of our usual, kaitlyn--child labor is AWESOME!) and seemed a bit nervous. she called a few times and we gave her all the standard reassurances, "everything is fine," etc.
when we got home, i peeked into her bedroom and walked over to check on her. that's when i saw this photo.
(look very carefully. see anything disturbing?)
if you answered, "holy &%*#,THAT RIGHT THERE IS A KNIFE!" you are correct:
yes, it totally freaked me out.
yes, i talked to her the next morning about the dangers of having large cutlery in her room as a weapon choice (such as accidentally killing her sisters, dropping on her toes, perhaps injuring the kitties, etc.)
no, she will NOT be using butcher knives as her favorite form of security blanket in the future.
& yes, we love that she makes us gasp. and then giggle later:)
