Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.




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?)





so, didja?









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:)

WTH! SHARP KNIFE!

One of our young men at Youth COnference sliced his arm open 5 inches protecting himself with a knife under his pillow.
glad she's safe!

perhaps some pepper spray???

I was just looking at how cute her room was to notice a knife.

In the future, maybe she could move the chair a little closer to the bed so the intruder doesn't use it on her first. Just a tip.

I was thinking the same thing as Vanessa. The cell phone and the knife are a little too far away. Best put them under her pillow like I do.

I also noticed that the armoire was barricaded so that no monsters could get out...have you considered a type of "Life Alert" button that would deliver an electric shock to you if she really was in trouble?

I ditto Vanessa's comment.

Hopefully in your parental advice, you covered the topic of being able to actually REACH her weapon of choice in any type of sudden attack...
