I haven't figured this out yet . . .
If you’ve seen The Little Mermaid, you’ll likely remember the scene where Ariel combs her hair with a fork. And like Ariel, children often find uses for household items that aren’t really what they should be used for.
For instance, using a screwdriver as a gardening tool. Be it a hoe or a shovel, G finds a way to use a screwdriver that I don’t find very logical. But, far be it from me to object to the boy’s creativity.
C and I watched, astounded at G’s dexterity with a screwdriver. I think he fancies himself some kind of archaeologist. Here’s the ironic thing about this; he has gardening tools, real ones. He has a hoe and a hand shovel. A screwdriver’s just a more finely tuned instrument I suppose.
At one point, this little digging expedition of his got weird and it was like he was trying to murder the dirt by stabbing it repeatedly.
