My Autumn has finally, at the ripe old age of 7 years and 10 months, experienced true remorse. She admitted whole-heartedly that an incident that almost led to a trip to the emergency room for her sister and extensive bathroom remodelling (to a bathroom that has already been almost completely remodelled) was completely, regretably her fault. She actually just sat down next to me and said she has a surprise in her head that she wants to write herself. So here goes...
"i love you very much and iiiii am vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveary sorry i broke it."
There you have it. What a great feeling when you can actually see your children absorbing the lessons you have spent so much time and energy trying to teach them. Right before my very eyes!
