Lesson learned today -
There are consequences when making bad choices.
Aidan got very upset this morning when Zoe chose a show he.did. not.like. He was given the chance to make a good choice - stop fussing and get a chance to choose the next time. Instead, he got more upset, threw a real fit and Mommy took all shows away for today. He rarely gets that upset so it seems so shocking when it happens.
After we came to my house, we looked at recipes on my computer to see what dessert we could make. He wanted to bake something different than chocolate cupcakes. We looked at several things and chose chocolate chip whoopie pies with strawberry filling. We baked the cookies. We mixed up the filling. It was not stiff enough and we used all the confectioner sugar I had. So, to the store I went. (Gina was home so I could do that with out children) We finished up the filling. I filled half the cookies and used the rest of them to make 2 cookies into a whoopie pie.
I was in the kitchen making dinner when I heard a crash and breaking glass. OH NO!!
Aidan had thrown a ball which hit some champagne glasses which were on the table. (the glasses belong to our 2 oldest daughters.....prom memento's. I had taken them out of the hutch to be given to them) The cookies were also on the table. You guessed it, there was glass on the cookies.
Aidan cried and cried. He watched as I threw the cookies in the trash can. He was upset, I was upset. He was so sad that we wouldn't be eating the whoopie pies. It was another hard lesson learned. We do not throw balls in the house. Ever.
We will make more tomorrow.
He told me this afternoon that it's so boring without shows.
Hard way to learn hard lessons. But, I doubt this will be the last time. Little boys will learn some things over and over because .....
Boys will be boys!
