This past week Mason bought himself a pocket knife. After school, the first day, I went up to check on him and found him cutting up nuts on a wooden box. I asked him to come down and cut them in the kitchen. He was surprised I didn't get angry. He hadn't hurt anything. I mostly wanted him down with us in case he cut himself. He regularly asks if can use his knife to open cans for meals and at mealtime. :0) I hope he remembers never to take it to school. He loves it!
