hooked on pottery

The little man got a new vase that he made his father buy yesterday. We were at the Flea market for my usual hunt for used (cheap) paperbacks and there were a lot of vases among other knick-knacks on display. He pointed and touched a few of them, much to my fear of him breaking the fragile vases. He was promised one vase and the smart boy that he is, he waited until I finished my rounds so he was able to see everything there was, then decided on a particular short vase. When asked what he was going to do with it, he said he will put flowers on the vase. We do have a slight problem because we have a little monkey who does not care a whit about reaching and grabbing stuff she is not supposed to so I told the little man to put the vase up where sissy cannot see or be tempted to reach it. It is on a table in his room. His solution to keep the vase safe is to keep his bedroom door closed. It does make the vase safe. For now, at least. :D
