Cutting Down Straws for the Little Ones

When eating out with children and grandchildren, Papa always makes sure he has his small Swiss Army knife in his pocket. Little ones have a difficult time managing a straw in their drinks. Papa comes to the rescue with the little scissors on his knife. One snip and the problem is solved. Now the children just automatically pass their drinks over to him so he can cut the straw down to a more manageable length.

When my husband saw our grandchildren were having difficulty getting those long straws to their mouths when we ate out, he pulled out his small pocket knife (which has scissors) and snipped the straw down to a length which they could manage without spilling the drink or having to deal with an awkward positioning of the glass.

Now when we go out to eat with our grandchildren, as soon as they get their beverages, they pass them to Papa. He has been doing this for years and it is so cute to see the younger ones pick up this practice from the older ones.
