Joel brought a term's worth of pottery projects home from art class today. One of them - Grumpy old Grandpa - was quite good and his teacher wanted to display it at an exhibition. Joel wasn't into that. He wanted it at home to give to Andrew. We negotiated and decided we'd have it at home for the week then take it to the exhibition next weekend. Good.
We put it up on the top of the bookshelf. Ten minutes later it was knocked off and a broken (just a bit).
Joel handled it very well. Better than me. I am angry and frustrated.
