My youngest son has such a good sense of right and wrong. He deals with it in an unique way. Whenever he is about to do something he isn’t supposed to, or thinks he will get in trouble for he will tell us, “Mom! (Dad!) Don’t look at me (this)!”
Of course we immediately look do see what he is doing, or about to do.
He also is very good at telling us when he has done something wrong as well. Like if he has made a mess or broken something he will come to us and say “Mom (Dad) you don’t want to see this.”
Last night he came into the room where I was working with tears standing in his eyes. He said ” Mom, you REALLY don’t want to see this. Don’t come downstairs.” I knew he had done something big.
He started crying.
I scooped him up and hugged him and asked him what happened. He started saying he broke the thing that makes circles. I had no idea what he meant so we went downstairs to see.
He had broken my very unique, probably one of a kind, vintage yarn swift…
He was so very sad.. so was I. I had told them many times not to touch it, or go near it as it is old and delicate and definitely an eye poker! I talked to him about it a bit, and he said sorry.
Of course the whole time I was dealing with my little guy; I was struggling to keep it together and not cry myself. I knew if I did that would make it worse for him and he had it bad enough!
We looked it over and it’s possible if I plunder some unsuspecting umbrella that we could salvage it. In the end I think I will have to replace it. And sooner than later.. I rely on that thing..
I could always go back to my computer chair setup!
