Even after the zip line fiasco Thing 2 still thinks tying knots is a good idea. This time he got himself into a bit of a pickle when he tied his shoelaces to the handles of 2 sleeping bag stuff sacks.
More interestingly, a few days earlier this same little boy had tied said sleeping bags so as to hang from the loft bed for use as punching bags.
What a quandary. After I took documentary photos I walked away. After all - if he's not going to think things through before acting he's definitely going to need strong problem solving skills. What a perfect time for him to start developing them.
