Can't Touch This

My life has turned from one who does to one who says don't.

With the curious one by my side obviously there are things that are so inviting to touch. Being so much more mature in age (not so much in mind), I still do know there are a few dangerous things that should not be touched.

I spend most of the the day saying one thing. "Can't touch this!"

But with my 3 and a half year old I see danger in every corner, wire, wall, fly. What has happened to let them learn for themselves? To be honest I have never agreed with that so I will keep saying...

"Can't Touch This!!!"

When is it OK to just look away? Mind you, I can't look away from that.
