see what happens ...


(image the water globe is busted too)

when children reach to get something off a shelf that is just a little too tall for them!? in elyssa's excitement to show my mom her gingerbread man statue that she got from our favorite babysitter as a late christmas gift, she knocked the shelf and my seattle rain globe and my statue took fatal falls ...

it was so sad ... the shelf hit elyssa in the head and she cried about it - the bonk on the head as well as the broken items. i cried about my new statue and not-so-sure-if-it's-replaceable rain globe ... andy tried to lighten the mood and make me feel better - "if it ain't broke - it ain't ours!" not helping, dear.

obviously there has to be consequences for actions that cause damage to things that don't belong to us ... we had a talk with elyssa and decided that she could do extra jobs for mom these next 2 weeks. she has been doing a good job of not complaining ... and i have my headless statue sitting on the shelf as a reminder.

now the trick is to replace them ... $25 for the statue and who-knows-how-much for the rain globe!!
