Weapons for tots

Henry: Mama, where's the knives?

Me, pointing: Over there. In the drawer with the other silverware.

Hen: These knives?

Me: Yes, those are the knives you can play with.

<insert pause here>

Me, to Darren: Perhaps we're taking free-range parenting a bit too far.

I so understand this. Erin has somehow graduated from kid scissors to grown-up ones and straight pins. Granted, only under adult supervision, and the scissors are really dull, but still.
