My wife shared a funny story with me today. My niece had one of those green clear visors that she got at a thrift store. My 4 year old son asked to borrow it and she handed it to him. He turned it upside down over his face and said: “Stand back Lillie I’m working on the lathe. Momma hand me the wood.”

I’m glad that he’s taking the safety first approach. Too cute of a story not to share it.

Thanks Russ,

that’s really a cute story and Debbie’s right, kids do learn by watching us so we need to set a good example, especially when it comes to safety.
