Your Never To Old To Learn

My son broke my heart tonight. Well I hurt his feelings and didn't realize it. That is what broke my heart. Shane and Matthew took down Christmas decorations last night while I was with my mom. I came home and he had a billion Santa Clauses on the bar. And my Christmas village on a little stand instead of the table behind the couch where I always put it. So I fixed it. I shouldn't have done that. I concentrated on the wrong thing. I thought about how cluttered it looked and wanted it to look "nicer." I didn't think about the fact I told him he did a good job then undid what he did. While Shane and I were at our class he told Aspen how upset he was. Now I have to wait till he wakes up to say sorry and hope he is not discouraged and is willing to fix  my mistake!

I don't think it was a mistake. Sometimes, children have to realize how things are traditionally done in their family -- how mom wants it done. Maybe you should explain that to him.

I hear what you are saying. I sent a mixed message. I said great job then undid the great job. I talked to him this morning and the village remains where it is suppose to be. I did let him put the Santa clauses back out.
