Anyway... back to more pleasant things. Today something really funny happened. Last night I was in the middle of talking to my husband about family stuff (we don't see each other often, hectic life), when Ethan asked me to staple some papers. I did that and he asked me to staple it again, so I did.
This morning we were all getting ready - you know how mornings can be - and I look and he is sitting on the sofa, with this very long face.
"Ethan, what's up?"
"It's going to take me a loooooooooong time to make another Ethan book", he says and starts sobbing.
He stands up, turns to me, open his arms, walks in my direction, crying:
"Mom, I feel really sad, can I have a hug?"
"What's going on, why are you feeling so sad?"
"Because you messed up my book, you stapled all over it, I had to throw it in the recycle bin."
"Go get it, I will fix it for you."
He brings it to me, tells me about those papers being an "Ethan book". I grab the little stapler, with the little thingy at the end I carefully remove both staples, and staple them again along the "book spine". By then he is already smiling.
Mommy is his hero. =)
He ends the issue with a consideration on the stapler, he thinks it's a very cool thing.
I was late for school about 10 minutes. The teacher says he is going to lock the classroom door next week, no one late will be allowed in. I don't really care. I made my boy really sad and really happy this morning. =) I'm his hero for the day.
And the teacher? Guess which teacher it is. Right, Mr. Full-of-Himself. Bleh!
