Inevitably, just about every babies reach the destructive stage wherein they throw everything they see and eat on the floor. I have high tolerance when it comes to this, perhaps its because I understand that it’s just their way of learning. Things get broken, that’s life, I accept, but then she threw a very expensive dragon figurine my mom had (5 months ago ) and her latest victim is my laptop ( just last month )…my tolerance is running out. I would like to just keep my cool and think that she’s just aspiring to be a scientist, fascinated with gravity, acceleration, sound waves and how all things break apart in pieces.
Anyways to wrap it up, here’s the list of things she broke (yr 2012 ) :
My mothers dragon porcelain figurine – fell off the table
4 drinking glasses – threw them on the floor
2 plates – she kicked them
1 bowl – threw them
1 glass pitcher – threw them
1 salt shaker – threw them
2 laptop wires – bit them to death ( with her 4 teeth???)
Countless toys and story books
2 glass jars ( threw them )
Alarm Clock ( threw them from the balcony )
2 nokia cell phones, threw them on the toilet bowl at the same time.
Her latest victim is my laptop. AAHHH! Oh Thank goodness it’s still working, few dents here and there and a missing tooth ( the letter B from the keyboard ).
I just hope this is the last one…
