Think of it this way. Better that the 3 year old poke himself in the finger with the fork than shove it through his nose (like the picture we've all seen and were mortified by!)

Sorry the boys are crazy while "hubs" is away. Sorry I'm stealing mom and dad from you.

Hope you have a good weekend!

I now know how the fork in the nose is possible, there is a HOLE in his finger. I'm getting child-friendly forks today!
