A Lesson Learned

After a recent rash of flying toys, Andrew and I instituted a new rule: If Bear throws something it goes in the garbage. After losing a pair of flip flops and a baby bottle the air traffic around the house greatly diminished. Last week she chucked "Binky Bear" at Andrew. He took it away and told her it was going in the trash can (major temper tantrum ensued). Since we wouldn't actually throw away Binky Bear, Andrew just hid it. A couple of days later he gave it back on account of good behavior. That's when Bear and I had this conversation...

Bear: The recycle man didn't take Binky Bear away?

Me: No, he was going to but Daddy knows how much you love Binky Bear so he asked the recycle man to leave Binky Bear here.

Bear: Not like my flip flops?

Me: Right. Your flip flops are all gone because you threw them at Mommy.

Bear: So I can throw things at Daddy but not at you?

Me: No Bear, we don't throw things at anybody.
