Semi-disaster for christmas this year. The boy got a spiderman watch which he took a bath in and broke after owning it for less than 24hrs. He also got a remote control quad-copter which he broke in less than 7 hrs. To his credit it came with replacement blades and he was attempting to replace them without asking for help when he pulled out the motor and broke the wires.
He’s really upset and that is like half of his christmas busted. I got pretty annoyed at his “you have money, can’t you replace it?” which caught me off guard. I told him that we make lots of money, but that we spend almost all of it every time so we can’t just replace things without not doing something else.
