You may wonder what more there could be for me to say. Well, about a week later I was organizing the office and found something on top of the cabinet that gave me pause.
I texted this picture to Bart saying "look what I found, I really should throw them away shouldn't I?" Well I didn't. And a scant ten minutes later I heard the now very familiar sound of all of the gems spilling from the bag. Then muffled giggles. Then the words "tell her it was an accident."
Now these four year olds could not resist. I get it really. But that didn't mean I shouldn't make it regrettable. So I forced them to clean it up. And it took a whole hour. And I would say "pouring these jewels everywhere sure was a bad choice wasn't it?" And they would mutter "bad choice, very bad choice."
I just couldn't throw them away after all that work. I tucked th in the back of a drawer. There may never be a final end to this story... Mebbe... Mebbe not.
