Little Pitchers Have Big Ears
Rose and Roni had a mission this morning. We have a set of piggy banks set up on top of a bookcase out of reach. They have been determined to have them for weeks now. So this morning in a moment of weakness - they are most adept at pleading - I let them have one that we had purchased at a flea market. They promised to keep it on their dresser and just admire it. I should have known that promise wouldn't last. Within the hour they had named it Dora and were playing actively with it - making it a bed, putting a plastic crown on it's head. Less than three hours after getting it a loud crash came from the playroom followed by crying. Dora was in pieces on the floor. I cleaned up the mess and muttered that I was stupid to let them have it.
