It started as a normal situation, Teddy and Stella got into a fight. Nothing new, it happens seven to eight times a day (with three kids, there’s always an argument over something).

This one was over one of Teddy’s light sabers. He came downstairs all in a lather saying Stella broke one of his light sabers. He said she grabbed it and broke it. It was in two pieces, but it was able to be slid back into place. He was all worked up because it “wasn’t the same anymore”.

Stella is known for grabbing things, so I was pretty miffed about this whole incident. I called her into the room and was ready to tear into her. Then she fills in the rest of the story…

Teddy held out the light saber for her to hold on to as he tried to lift her. Poor judgment on both of them.

I confronted Teddy with my new found information, which he had no choice but to admit his part in the terrible decision. I told him it was just as much his fault as it was Stella’s.

He wasn’t happy.

A few minutes later, Stella came running done stairs in tears.

“Teddy blew up my world!”

She has an array of Mi World shops in her room and I thought that was what she was talking about.

I couldn’t have been more wrong! (It took me a few minutes to figure out what happened.)

All three of the kids have there Minecraft world linked up on their tablets. Well, Teddy went into Stella’s world and set off a whole lot of TNT and blew up a bunch of her stuff.

Working together, a rare sight!
Working together, a rare sight!

Man was she upset. She was crying about not being able to get her animals back in their pen.

This is where my parenting skills are lacking because I started laughing and couldn’t keep a straight face (I tried SO hard). So I told her we need to go take this problem to Daddy.

This conversation went on for twenty minutes about how what happened with Stella and the light saber was an accident, but what Teddy did was on purpose and that was a big difference.

It was just another weekend in the Kraus House.

    • I’m glad only my son was into MineCraft. I could have definitely seen this happening at my house if both my kids had been into it.

  1. Oh gosh, that sounds like something that would have happened in my house! I would have had a hard time keeping a straight face too.

  2. I can relate. They no longer burn up each other’s stuff, but I occasionally get, “Mom, can you tell Finn to stop spawning sheep!!”
    “Finn! Stop spawning sheep!” – (things I never thought I would say as a parent.

  3. Oh my gosh, like you, I started laughing too. Is this what I have to look forward to? We have 2 kids right now, but plan on having at least 1 more. Haha, kids are just too funny.

  4. I think we live the same life in a parallel universe because my kids are also guilty of going into each other’s Minecraft worlds and causing trouble. Who would have thought with technology at an all time high, the top video game would be pixelated on purpose.

  5. Oh my goodness that sounds so familiar! My nieces and nephews all play Minecraft together and mostly they get along but sometimes there is some revenge enacted during the game. It’s so frustrating!

  6. Just another day in the life of parents! Understanding what kids are upset about can require so much investigation!

  7. Oh I would have a hard time keeping a straight face too. But I can imagine how devastated she must have been. Poor thing!

  8. Parenting is so different than it was 20 years ago! There is so many new avenues to worry about and manage. It is exhausting.

  9. My kids don’t play Mine Craft. I hope that you and your husband were able to figure out how to deal with the explosion. My kids have been known to fight too. It’s normal to a degree.

  10. Oh boy, you do have your hands full. I am just learning the Minecraft lingo as my little one ventures into this new world. I’m pretty sure I would have cracked up and tried to recover with little to no success as well. Sometimes it’s good to have daddy step in. 😉

  11. None of my kiddos are into Minecraft, but this happens on the daily here about a hundred times a day about other things. I can’t help but laugh sometimes and just shake my head.
