The Couch

A few months ago, I noticed we had a cut on the back of the couch in our bonus room. It looked like a small number 7. It hadn't come from a puncture or something being thrown into the couch, it definitely came from someone cutting it.

The culprit was Landon. He readily admitted to cutting the couch {he may be mischievous but he is honest}. He had found Lance's pocket knife and wanted to know "what it cut like" and decided to use the couch.

Needless to say, we were not pleased!

The cut is still on the back of the couch as we have not yet determined the best option for fixing it.

A few days ago, I noticed that our cut was now a gapping hole. AAH! How in the world did this happen?

Well, I went to Landon first {usually a good option}. I asked him if he cut the couch further. He told me, with a smile on his face, no I did not cut the couch I stuck my head through the cut.


He stuck his head through the hole so that he could see what the inside of a couch looked like.

{i had him recreate what he did}

The gapping hole is a daily reminder of Landon's curious and mischievous nature. It makes me shake my head and smile.

You are a nicer Mom than I...:) you even took a photo of his actions. I am glad he is honest. That will take him far in life.

Ahhhhh! I could so see my six year old boy doing the same thing.
And hey, it's totally logical to stick your head inside a small cut to see what the inside of a couch looks like. After all when will you ever have that opportunity again?

You are a good mommy. I might have lost my mind over that one!

Oh my goodness! Did the Broncos have anything to do with that? Maybe he should be grounded from Football for a season... HAHA. I'm so sorry.
