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.
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.
