I used to live in mortal fear of my mother's wooden spoon. And yes, it got used A LOT.

When my little brother was 2 - 3 (I was approaching 20), he BROKE that wooden spoon after he got a couple tastes of it after misbehaving. Well, my mother had a brilliant idea of telling me to "Go cut a switch for him", at which point my little brother would start crying and screaming that he would be good. That usually worked, but sometimes I had to actually go cut one. When I moved out, my Mom started having my little brother go cut HIS OWN switch. Man, you know that had to be bad!

I have long handled teaspoons , I use a lot for stirring my coffee or tea , which is usually in a tall mug. I think they are called iced tea spoons.

You might as well just go sit on the front steps and wait for Children's Protective Services to show up.

Until Shoe Protective Services...

Teaspoons make great, gravity-defying nose jewelry. They also make handy pea-catapults, gagging aids for especially saccharine emotional interludes, and have you ever tried to play the card game "Spoons" with forks or knives? Ouch!

I use them to crush medicine tablets for doggie.
Trying to get him to swallow tablets whole is impossible.
No, cheese or peanut butter don't work.
So I crush with teaspoon in soysauce saucer, wet tip of finger and rub medicine on his tongue. He doesn't know what hit him, and he can't gag it out.
