4 Spoons Today

I only managed 4 spoons today.
Getting to 50 is my next target.
I was quite pleased considering I had both my sons all day!
 

I like letting the spoons carve themselves.
I am sure many of you understand EXACTLY what I mean!

 
These are used everyday by the family,
so live next to the dining room table.


My favourite story about teaching my youngest to carve:
 
'Now you must not carve towards yourself,
I have told you already that is dangerous,
you might cut yourself!' I say to my 5 year old...
 
(he is carving with a frost laminated razor sharp knife)
 
'I know daddy, my thumb is already leaking' he says,
 
'Seriously?! Why did you not tell me?'
 
I investigate to find the wood and his hand covered in blood.
 
(Disclaimer - no children were permanently
injured in the making of this tale)
