The Pocket Knife

bob has always carried a pocket knife.
he uses it to do everything from shortening straws to extracting splinters.
the pocket knife is a staple.

(a random conversation with the little princess.)

TLP - "Mom, when I grow up and be a mom will I have to carry a pocket knife?"
Me - "Punkin, when you grow up, you should only marry a man who carries a pocket knife."
TLP - "Why"
Me - "Because if a man carries a pocket knife then he'll probably be a very handy man, just like your daddy."
TLP - " Oh, yeah and if he doesn't, I'll buy him one for Father's Day!"
Me - {laughing} "That would be a good idea!"

the things that run through the minds of children always amaze me. i treasure these conversations and to be safe, i think we'll get her a pink swiss army knife when gets a bit older. you know, just in case her husband doesn't carry a pocket knife like the men in her life.

My dh got my dd a small pocket knife. Guess it's a guy thing, but the girls can have on too :-)
