Musings of an Italian-American Catholic wife, mother, and writer.
...and this is why we don't play football in the house!
Point well taken, Mom! (Looks like a clean break, though... How good is the offender at gluing?)
There were two offenders who, besides creating the damage seen here, then proceeded to get into an argument as to whose fault it was: Bad throw! Bad Catch! Just one of those days...
Reminds me of the Brady Bunch episode: "Mom always said, Don't play ball in the house!"
Amen...although my boys always had their sister Laura to mend for them...she had dreams of working in a museum in art restoration...Now she teaches high school art! Have a good evening!! Cathy
Thanks for stopping by my "place" - you must read this post because girlfriend, I've sooooo been there! :)http://itsadogandponyshow.blogspot.com/2008/07/whats-formal-living-for-anyway.html
I can almost hear it now: "Mother, forgive them; they know not what they do . . . "
Just went through the same thing a couple of months ago. As I type this, the same offending child is tossing and catching a ping pong ball in the front hall.I am poised to lunge when I hear glass.
Boys will be boys. Most days I love this about them, and then there are *those* days.
Well, hopefully now that phrase, "Don't play ball in the house!" will stick for a long time!
