This is what happens when a 4 year old is in possession of scissors.
Snuggle Bug has had kid scissors for over a year now.  He usually only uses them when supervised.  I've kept them in his top dresser drawer and thought nothing of it....until this past weekend when we woke up and found our couch cut up to shreds in several places!

Apparently Snuggle Bug decided the couch fabric needed cutting.  Oh, and he decided his mattress and his sheets needed cutting too.

I suspect this cutting frenzy was prompted by his fascination with my sewing (he likes to sit on a stool and watch me work at my cutting/sewing table).

Well, now I'm putting my hand-sewing skills to work.  I'm using transparent thread to repair the couch fabric.

His sheets I threw away.  His mattress I simply turned over (to hide the cut side) for now.  

As for his scissors, they've met with an untimely death.  Oronzo threw them in the garbage and said he won't get another set until he's about 40.

I guess I can be thankful it wasn't his hair or our leather furniture that he cut!
