It finally happened.  My 3 year old got the best of my favorite, most used ruler. I want to cry!
I blame myself for not snatching it out of his grubby little paws when I had the chance. Grrrr.  C'est la vie... And RIP. 

Hmm maybe it can still be used for cutting... Although actual measuring is out of the question.

I broke my favorite rulers recently when I let it fall off the ironing board onto tile floor. I am still shocked it wasn't one of my little ones who did it!

Oh that is a total bummer! But a good excuse to look online for a new one. :)

Noooooooooo!!! My favourite ruler broke last year, so I know just how you feel :-(
Good thing they're not expensive, now you have an excuse to go shopping!!

That is too bad. When my son was about 3 I was doing some cutting with my mat and rotary cutter on the kitchen table. My son waited for an opportunity then picked up the cutter and proceeded to cut big gashes into the oak table ! I too was glad that he hadn't hurt himself, mad at myself for leaving the blade exposed and sad that my beautiful table had been "personalized" by my son. I learned alot that day and there haven't been any more " incidents " !
Today I can look back and am still relived that the worst never happened.

I've decided that kids aren't necessarily expensive, it's the damage they cause to your stuff that is! (ie broken prescription eyeglasses, scissors to the screen and curtains...on and on!!!)
