How can something sooo cute be sooo destructive?
I went to a lot of trouble (and money) decorating their rooms. Not long ago, my boys destroyed their beautiful Red Plum Linen lamp by tipping over the tall boy it was sitting on and crushing it. I reluctantly replaced it.
Yesterday morning, No 2 decided to turn his bedside lamp on, turn it upside down and stuff it with items of clothing. I was woken at 6am by our eldest (who happens to have the nose of a bloodhound) screaming that there was a smell of burning muffins in his room, which he happens to share with No 2. His new woollen beanie was just starting to "singe". Luckily it didn't end up being a catastrophe, but the lamp has been now been removed.
Are all boys like this?
