Imagine for a moment with me that while Mark was snoozing away in his bed, during nap time, something bad happened to his window shade. Now imagine, during the same nap time, there was a great bumping and thumping heard by the parents on the first floor. Think elephants, lions, tigers, bears and maybe whales. Got that? Good. Now imagine upon entering Mark's room at the conclusion of nap time Mark says this statement to his mother. "Mom, my shade broke. But my animals are working on it. They'll have it fixed in no time." Now imagine how hard it was to keep a smile off my face when I walked in and saw not less than fifty (yes, there are that many of them) elephants, lions, tigers, bears and whales gathered in a circle all facing the window.
How am I supposed to discipline a little boy who makes me laugh all day? I can't. I just can't.
For the record, they couldn't fix it. I did though.
