Then,..we have our tender-hearted, rough and tumbly, very laidback little man! Ethan.
Most of the time our days are filled with fun, laughter, silly moments, hugs, kisses, and memorable times. And then there are days when other, reality happens----------
Did you know that it is NOT a good idea to get your laptop wet? EVER! Okay,..so I came downstairs to find my cutie pies,..Ethan and Nyah, cleaning mommy's laptop,...with a SPRAY BOTTLE full of WATER! I ran to them, grabbed the water bottle,..looked at the blank screen and realized very quickly that mommy wasn't going to have working computer for awhile. It was fried. It was toast. It was not a good moment. I wish I could say that I was brilliant and totally kept my calm and showed patience and used this as a glorious teaching moment. Oh I wish I had! Instead,...I stared down my children and kept asking them...."WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?" They eventually had an answer. "We were just cleaning it mommy! It was dirty!" It took me two days to even tell Marty so I could be calm in the moment and not escalate him too. He handled it well actually. We sent it to get fixed and 12 days later had it returned to us with all files and pictures in tact THANKFULLY! We had to buy a new motherboard and it was sooooo expensive. How do you explain that amount of money to children??? All they knew was that the computer was at the computer doctors and that we wouldn't be able to play on PBS kids anytime soon!
