Miss M is at this stage where scissors are super enthralling. I read somewhere along the line that she needs to know how to do this developmentally before school, so I find myself asking if she "wants to cut" or saying "look they're cutting" at random moments (like it's some strange mental illness gone cool). It always makes me feel out of place to say it but she really loves cutting paper these days. I imagine it's the sensation she likes but perhaps it's her current way of feeling mature. She can't do it with one hand yet, so she needs someone to hold the paper while she cuts slashes. Still I love this shot: her sporting some safety goggles and a heart missing from the paper - she looks so grown up and capable to me.
