This is the conversation we had:
Alex: Mom, when will I be allowed to have a knife?
Me: Well, I don't think you need one right now but you can grab a butter knife out of the drawer if you really need one.
Alex: No, I mean a big sharp knife! When can I use one of those?
Me: When you are old enough not to cut off a finger.
Alex: Well, what if there was a robber in our house and he had you, dad and Jordan all tied up and the only way for me to save you was to get the big, sharp knife?
Me: Well then I guess you could get the big knife out.
I really don't think he will need a knife if he just pulls out this face!
