Argh! My was outside playing with the basketball. For some reason she brought the ball in the house. Why? I don't know it's a rule that all balls stay outside. She was bouncing it and using it like a volleyball. I told her to take it back outside. Told her several times. Told her she will break something wtih it. So, on her way out to the front she tosses it up in the air one more time and loses control of it and it hits one of my many snow globes ans breaks it. It was a small one yes but it was the one my brtoher gave to me for Christmas just after my dh and I got married. I think our first Christmas together. It has meant a lot to me cause he got it for me and he got it thinking of the cat I had at the time. The cat on the snow globe looks almost like the cat I had back them.
She started bawling at the time and came and hugged me saying how sorry she was. I sent her to her room. She is grounded from the basketball for the week now. Now i have glitter all over my hands cause i cleaning it up and I need to figure out how to remove the rest of the glass so I can keep the main part of it. I don't want to get the glass all over the floor by taping it to break it.
She had to bring it in the house when she knows it's a no no and she had to toss it up in the air one more time to prove she could cath it and had control of it. She does this sort of thing a lot.
