Annika (4) got to use a garden tool today. While I weeded, Annika used her tool to chop the dead heads off of some flowers. After thinking about it for a while she announced, "These aren't scissors. Do you know what they are?"
Since I had thought that they were scissors, I now had no idea and said so.
"These," she said chopping them a bit in the air, "are snipper clippers."
That's funny. I could have sworn they were kitchen shears that someone (who may or may not be my husband) started using outside. Then I thought I gave them up for yard work and bought a new pair of kitchen shears.
But, as we all know, four-year-olds know best. Snipper clippers they are.
