As messy as that child is, he couldn't stand having anything on his hands. He must have washed his hands 10 times in an hour and a half. He'd run from his table at full tilt toward the sink, dodging through legs. Every time I'd admonish, "walk!" Every time he'd forget. Benny is like a windup toy. He's only got two speeds, full tilt, and dead stop.
I am always amazed at how my kids listen to others so much better than they listen to me. Ryan says it's because I make them nervous. We had knife safety lessons with our instructor. Benny was repeating the information to me this morning. "You have to put you hand on the handle, or on the back, not here." Benny was demonstrating with a butter knife. "And you never stab someone with it." Glad we got that down.
