The bandaid?? Well, that was another lesson in kid carpentry. Not only did he learn how to use some new tools, he also learned the importance of keeping his digits a safe distance away from any cousin who happens to be pounding nails too. Ahh, those lessons that hurt the most are often learned the quickest.
The smashed finger really didn't slow him down too much though. Sunday morning he headed back out to his tree stump to drive in a few more nails and to drill a few more holes for screws. It was hard to pull him away from this play. He felt so good about using real tools. He was beaming with pride after mutilating this tree stump with his small arsenal of tools. I've rarely seen him as pleased with his play and certainly never when he's just playing with his toy tools.
This was the finished piece. The other side of the stump is thoroughly covered, but I wasn't able to flip it over for a picture because our boy was hard at work on this side (and you know, who could interefere with that? Not this momma).
