I’m sure I’m not the only parent who has said those words. When my son Jake was younger, I’m sure I said “Stop! What are you doing?” at least a dozen times a day. Now that he’s older, those words don’t come out of my mouth that often. But when they do, it usually comes with a loud sigh, shake of my head and a “Seriously? Are you kidding me?”

The letter R stands for razor and apparently Jake has discovered where I keep mine in the shower. He can finally reach the place I put it and now he knows how sharp it is when he tried to carve a hole in the shower curtain with the blades.
