Slamming doors and Having Words
Don't be deceived by the pictures on this blog. We are not just a family of sweet, freckled face boys that grin at mom. Proof of this fact; the front door . This is my precious wood and window door of my happy old house. This door has seen more visitors then I could imagine. It has served me well.
I was working on a client and heard my boys yelling at eachother- and then the shatter of glass made my stomach drop. Sure enough, Hayden had slammed the door in an effort to express himself- and completely shattered it. Note: this is the second door he has damaged from slamming. Upstairs he dislodged a door frame last month. We made him help fix it and gave him a 'time-out'. Not enough, obviously.
Door slamming now carries a hefty fine in our homes- up to Five bucks a pop. He will be paying for at least half of this glass piece (which is $100.00). We are waiting for the glass to come in, until then it is cardboard and painters tape. There is beauty all around........
