One thing you never want to hear your child say, "Mom, Meredith has a ponga. Mom, Meredith has a ponga! Come!" The landscapers had left a ponga (machete) out and Meredith was running around with it as Amelia chased her and tried to get it out of her hands. Thankfully no one was injured. Meredith was carrying the ponga by its blade and swinging it around. We'll have to remind the landscapers to put these away and out of reach of a 2 year old (or any child for that matter)!
