    DDs Garlic Press went AWOL

    My daughter cooks with garlic in EVERYTHING. For the last 2 weeks her garlic press has been missing. This morning she found it. It was in Walter's room - he's 3 1/2. She picked it up and said, "So THAT's where MY garlic press went!!!" Walter looked at her and replied, "Momma, THAT is MY June bug crusher."

    Any body else find creative ways to use kitchen utensils???

    YUCK is right. I think Walter is very ingenious for his age.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Same here, I thought it would be play-doh or something.

    That is priceless! I was wondering the same thing, what is he doing with the crushed bugs?

    When my DD was that age she used to take some of the lunch she didn't finish into her room and put it in her toy chest, without my knowing it. When I found it I asked what it was doing in there and her response was, "For later." 28 years later she still loves left overs but she doesn't hide them in her bedroom. (She is one of those people that only eats when she is hungry so doesn't over-eat.)

    I asked DD what Walter was doing with the crushed bugs. She is worried but doesn't know. Hopefully he fed the chickens or embellished a mud pie but that is unlikely since the press was in his room.

    Kids can be very morbid when it comes to bugs. We used to do some crazy stuff to lightning bugs when I was a child. We lit ants on fire with a magnifying glass, tied strings to June Bugs, and melted slugs with salt. Those were the good old days... LOL

    My cousins used to swat June bugs out of the air with tennis rackets and stomp on them. They were protecting their mom's garden...at least that's what I was told. From indoors you couldn't see the bugs, at first I had no clue what they were doing out there! Looked like they'd lost their minds, LOL.

    My youngest used to use mine for Silly Putty. Needless to say I got a new one as soon as I found out.

    Way to go Walter!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
