Viewer Discretion Advised

So Tyler was faithfully doing the dishes the other night and I was on the computer in the other "room" when I heard Tyler yell from the kitchen, "AHh! I did it!" Our drinking glasses are squarish and too small for Tyler's hands to fit in them when he cleans them. He's always said that one day he would be washing the dishes and he would break a glass and cut his hand off. Well, didn't quite cut his hand off, he only just about cut his pinky off. Well, really it wasn't that bad, but as you can see below he sliced into it pretty good. We got him all cleaned up and it's actually healing pretty well now. Had we had insurance I think he would have gotten stitches. Right when this happened I told Tyler he was never allowed to do dishes again...then I realized that was a little drastic so I settled for never letting him wash those glasses again.

That looks very painful. And yes, a little drastic to try to make him not do dishes again. You would've regretted that decision later. We need to get together sometime and play games.

YUCK!!! And you don't have insurance? Scary! Please be careful.

That is sick. We are planning on coming up to visit sometime in February, probably the last weekend. We need to get together.

The EXACT same thing happened to Justin! Our cups are square and very breakable, Justin was washing the inside of the cup and it busted around his hand. He cut his left pointer finger right at the nuckle! Almost all the way down to the tendon, so stiches were necessary. It must be the cups... or maybe the boys! haha
